Solid Brass Wired Rosary - Blue Crazy Lace Agate

 Blue Crazy Lace Agate has to be my favorite bead.  I just love the color and the swirls of dark shades that run through this bead.  Each gemstone is hand turned with thick 20 gauge solid brass wire.  I pay close attention that the links are tight and with the thick wire it would be pretty hard to break this rosary.  (I haven't known of a 20 gauge rosary to break)  The chain that connects the decades are an even thicker soldered brass wire.  Yes this is a heavy duty rosary.  I have said a few rosaries on it myself, to break it in, and it is a wonderful prayer piece.  It is currently for sale in my Graceful Rosaries shop...and I hope that the recipient of this rosary will treasure it for years to come.
