A dear friend recently asked me to create a rosary for her husband. Wanting it to be just right, and one which would last for a long time, she wrangled with the decisions -- what beads? what center? which crucifix is just right? I think she did a great job picking out the parts and it turned out to be a truly beautiful, yet very masculine rosary.
The Aves are 6mm lapis lazuli denim blue beads, and the Paters are 8 mm pewter beads with a textured surface. The center is a pewter St. Benedict medal and the crucifix is a very handsome pewter crucifix.
