Turquoise Handmade Rosary First Nations Tribal Native American Catholic Gifts
Serenely beautiful like the deserts of the American Southwest, this Aboriginal styled old west Catholic rosary is sure to become a family heirloom.
I have used high quality Czech glass beads in a "desert sun" finish that is a crackle glaze of Turquoise blue overlaid on silver glass beads. They look like they have been out baking in the sunshine and dust of a long forgotten (except by God) pueblo or Spanish churchyard.
The Pater beads are genuine red coral, and the cross is a small, rustic style. The centerpiece is double sided with tribal styled markings on both sides.
This is a small rosary, and would make a lovely baptism gift, or it can also be used as a pocket Rosary or car Rosary. It is a full 5 decades and is meant to be used in prayer, even though it is only 13 inches (32.5 cm) from the tip of the antique silver cross to the middle of the third decade.
