Rainbow Rosary - At first I thought I was going to make a chakra necklace, but the beads kept congregating in 10’s. Somebody must need a rainbow rosary! This beauty is made of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and clear cut glass crystals. Every bead has been connected with individually hand- made links of antiqued slivertone wire. 18” long.
Made for day 25 of Shannon’s daily This or That Projects.
I started making rosaries 5 or six years ago, when I wanted to come up with something special for my father that he would be able to use and appreciate. He was so touched my it, I’ve made dozens more, and started my explorations into the history or prayer beads in religions across the globe. I love identifying links between religions & cultures, the past and the present.
Handmade in our brick cottage in northern Minnesota.
