I haven’t made a lot of rosaries. My focus has been more on Protestant (Anglican) prayer beads. But I love to make them when I have the chance. Recently, my sister-in-law asked me to make a rosary for a friend of hers. This is what I came up with. It is now one of my favorite designs!
The Our Father beads are made from bright, multi-colored Calsilicat beads, while the Ave Maria beads are made from vivid red wood beads. They are offset by blue and red seed beads. One of the best parts of this rosary is the silver Tierra Cast Talavera cross, and a matching Virgin Mary connector.
I love the idea of using these beads to praise God. They are so vibrant and hopeful and life-affirming. I am planning to recreate the design in Protestant (Anglican) prayer beads ASAP.
