TIEPOLO, Giovanni Battista
The Institution of the Rosary
St Louis de Montfort ~~ "Mary is Queen of heaven and earth by grace, as Jesus is the King of them by nature and conquest."
I intended to do this days ago, in preparation for Mother's Day, but...life distracted me.
Instead, I'll do it halfway through the month, at noon on May 15 -- a rosary giveaway. Leave a comment here (with your name and a way to get in touch -- this part is a must) between now and then (noon on May 15) and I'll give away this rosary.
The center of this rosary is one of my favorites, as is the crucifix. I paired the regal blue pearls with a beautiful soft shade of yellow. The Ave beads are 6mm deep blue Swarovski crsytal pearls, and the Pater Noster beads are 6mm jonquil Swarovski crystals, capped with bronze caps. They are strung on 49-strand, flexible steel wire with light lemon yellow Czech and bronze seed beads. The center and the crucifix are both hand cast from solid bronze.
