Description

These incredible Larimar quartz beads look exactly like the turbulent sea with foam capped waves. Because of the nature of the stone, the almost translucent blue creates an unimaginable depth when it encounters the opaque white parts, making the beads look like they descend to the depths of the sea.

Paired with star-like large white jade beads that glisten with transparency, this rosary is perfect for the title of Mary, 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 flaring out like sea shells.

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 flared 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.

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.

Please remember that all things can break with excessive use. Under normal, conscientious use, this rosary will last a very long time, but, for instance, if you keep this rosary in a tight pocket every day, all day and get it crushed under you or against something, the small glass spacers can break and the steel wire will be under strain and can stretch and even break.

These repairs can be made, and I would be delighted to do so, but as time goes on, I might not have extra beads or I might be gone. So do be gentle and take good care of your rosary.

BRACELET SIZING

Lobster clasp and chain make the new bracelets far more adjustable than the old designs. Two sizes are available: Small and Medium/Large. The only difference is the length of the chain. Small goes from 7″ to 7.5″, Med/Large goes from 7″ to about 8.5″.

If the size is too big, you can easily use two pliers and remove any excess chain and make it exactly customized to your wrist.

For every order, 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.
