This is a hand crafted flex-wire rosary made from 8mm Czech glass Lampworked beads . The papal crucifix and affectionate center are high-quality gold-filled pieces (gold over sterling). The small flower is actually made of glass and is embedded in the bead as part of the lampwork process. This heirloom quality rosary is strung on 26 pound test jewelers&rsquo wire to make it extremely durable. Many more colors are available, including black, pink, baby blue, blue, mint green, red, wine red, and gray. Beads are available in both 6mm and 8mm sizes.
