Custom Design - Our Lady of Perpetual Help 5 decade Rosary
This Rosary was a custom design, inspired by the painting of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The beads used reflect some of the complex color interplay found in the original icon. I'm always happy to work with you on your own custom design!
This Cygnea Cantio original is handcrafted using faceted and fire polished Czech glass beads, and brass and bronze base metal findings and spacers. The centerpiece and crucifix are cast from vintage originals and are true bronze (not base metal).
Each rosary I make is one of a kind, prayerfully assembled, as well as prayed with at least once during the weekly Parish Rosary. The Rosaries are not blessed.
The design of the decades and Our Father beads are in segmented strung units, such that you may focus on each prayer segment contemplatively. With this design, if there is a break, you only lose that individual segment, not the entire length of the rosary (learn about my guarantee, below). This design allows me to best utilize my hands, as I'm unable to make individually linked/wire wrapped designs due to my hand strength and dexterity.
I strive for high quality and durable craftsmanship, but should you have any issues with breakage or loss of an individual segment of one of the Rosaries, I will repair the broken segment for you, or rework all of the beadwork around the original bronze elements in such a situation that the individual beadwork cannot be recreated. This service requires advance authorization and return of the entire rosary/parts so that I may give it prompt attention.
In addition to creating the custom Rosaries shown here, I've also recently joined Our Lady's Rosary Makers and begun to make Mission Rosaries, to send to communities in need.
