St. Benedict silver hematite military style five decade Rosary
This Saint Benedict Rosary features electroplated silver hematite beads of various sizes, inspired by the military-issue Rosaries of WWII. This Rosary is more simple and utilitarian than my usual work, but as a Mother of an active duty service member, I was inspired to craft it with him in mind! The resulting Rosary is elegant, yet strong and purposeful. Hematite is a cool, heavy stone, giving this Rosary much presence.
The center medal is double sided.
Silver tone base metal center, crucifix and findings.
Each Rosary I make is prayerfully assembled. Most of my work is one of a kind, but this Rosary in particular I will be crafting multiples of.
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'm also a member of Our Lady's Rosary Makers and make Mission Rosaries, to send to communities in need.
