Description

When I bought these Our Father beads, them I dubbed them the “puffy clouds” and they are notated as such in all my paperwork now. Made from white jade, they are just as hard as the blue agate, but in this rosary they make me think of crashing waves and, well, fluffy clouds.

Around the Our Father cloud beads, the double stack of bead cap and ornate spacer make each one look like pearls in the mouths of oysters or like sea shells.

Paired with the crackled blue agate, the rosary looks like the turbulent sea, making it the perfect rosary for Our Lady, Star of the Sea. This devotion to Mary has been around since the beginning of the medieval times, calling upon Mary as our guiding star to Jesus.

St. Bernard referenced Mary under this title saying. “If the winds of temptation arise; If you are driven upon the rocks of tribulation look to the star, call on Mary; If you are tossed upon the waves of pride, of ambition, of envy, of rivalry, look to the star, call on Mary. Should anger, or avarice, or fleshly desire violently assail the frail vessel of your soul, look at the star, call upon Mary.”

Do we go look to Mary as our guiding star? Do we ask her to show us how to live like Jesus? Or do we try to do it all ourselves? When everything around us seems to be falling apart and we feel like we are drowning in the sea of temptation, do we give up and do what is easy, or do we look to Mary standing at the foot of the Cross and trust that nothing is impossible with God?

The crucifix on this rosary was a lucky find, but perfect for Our Lady Star of the Sea. The tips look like sea shells. Perfection. It is 1.75″ tall and is silver oxidized.

To finish off the rosary, the center piece is a silver oxidized Our Lady of Grace Mary, also known as the image of Mary on the Miraculous Medal. It’s a simple center piece that creates that final touch to bring it all together. The folds of her mantle mirror the shelled tips of the crucifix and the silver pairs with the accents on the Our Fathers and makes them shine out.

——–

At 15 inches long, with 8mm beads, this rosary is slightly shorter than your standard rosary. The rosary is assembled with 49-strand steel beading wire, crimping beads, and wire protectors, so it is super strong and will last a lifetime of use.  While I do strength test every rosary, it is still a handmade piece and prone to human error. So, should it break, simply gather all the beads you can find and contact me and I’ll gladly repair it for you for free sans shipping and the replacement of major beads (if you loose the spacers, don’t even worry about it).

Because this rosary is made with stone beads, it has a weight to it and retains ambient cooler room temperate, which is really awesome to feel when you’re praying; it always made me focus more on what I was saying. And then as you pray the stones warm up from your body heat.

The beading wire stretches slightly as it is used (this is normal – it wears in like good leather boots) so you will still be able to slide the beads along as you pray.

I’m so excited to release this rosary! All the pieces came together so well.

Your Impact

In light of the new New York bill allowing abortions up to birth, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
