Wildflowers - variation 2 - Vintage Wood and Carnelian


“Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."

— Matthew 6:28-29

Inspired by the intense colors of Autumn wildflowers in New England...

The Celtic knot-work cross is solid bronze, cast by hand from an antique original.

The wooden Paters are splendid old vintage beads — hand-carved saucers, wonderfully varied in shape and size. We're tremendously lucky to have found one tiny handful of them.

The stone Ave beads are carnelian. These are — unexpectly! — mingled with intense purple, olive, and deep blue matte glass.

This rosary is made all-in-one-loop, rather than in the familiar "Y" form. We don't see lots of all-one-loop rosaries lately, but they were pretty much the norm until just a couple centuries ago.

Cross: 2.5”
Paters: ranging from about 12mm to 18mm
Aves: 8mm
Length: 21”
