Lapis Lazuli Bronze Five Decade Rosary with Miraculous Medal centrepiece, and Free Worldwide Shipping
I make all products by hand using component parts. Each bead is placed onto the chain then linked to the next one at a time using traditional jewellery making tools. To create rosaries in this way by hand takes time but the end result is not only beautiful but I think gains something special from the time taken to make it. The beads used in this piece are 6mm.
I've used beautiful Lapis Lazuli for this Rosary. Lapis Lazuli are some of my favourite ever gemstones, they are a dark yet vibrant blue with flecks of gold within them, absolutely stunning.
Each rosary is packaged in a hand stamped eco-friendly kraft box ready for gift giving. Also includes care instructions, storage bag, and an anti-tarnish tab to keep your item looking beautiful.
I make many styles of rosaries so please click on my shop name 'Free Range London' to see everything available. If you don't see what you want, I adore making custom orders so please get in touch with your ideas.
One of the reasons I have always adored Lapis Lazuli is because of it's history. I remember learning years ago that in distant past, Lapis Lazuli was used as pigment but was very expensive so only special paintings had bright blue, and this is why the virgin Mary is often depicted wearing bright blue as she was deemed to be special enough to warrant using this beautiful colour!
