Our flexwire rosaries are strung on 26 pound test professional jewelers wire to make them extremely durable, while maintaining their flexibility. Red beads are also available with deep red spacer beads replacing the blue! Cloisonne beads are made by soldering wire cells onto a copper bead to form a flower pattern. Enamels are then painted into the cells and fired for the first time. This process is repeated numerous times until every filled-in space is smooth. The surface is then lightly ground and polished. Lastly, the exposed cell edges are gold plated. A lifetime heirloom treasure for $221. 14k gold also available. Please allow extra time for delivery of this rosary since it is made to order.
