Product Description:

Museum Inspired Series, Paters: hand-carved black onyx stone.  Aves: '8 Window' CZ glass beads

Inspired by antique rosaries and chaplets in European museums and books from the 16th up.  Working with rare components does make a difference in the finished design.  Crucifixes, rosary centers, and religious medals cast from antiques in sterling and bronze along with hard to find antique beads (or those inspired by them) do make the difference.  But most of all, it is in the way a designer chooses to put it all together.  These old rosaries and chaplets from the 16th-19th centuries speak to the heart in a special way, regardless if they were put together by an artist or by a guild--or simply by someone who took what they had and strung it into a prayer chain.  But the results are so beautiful that they are now resting in museums all over Europe.  

Hand cast from antique vintage pieces of sterling silver and solid bronze, then restored to original patina.
