This rosary will make a beautiful memorial rosary for someone who has recently lost a mother, a special mother figure, a grandmother, wife or friend and is grieving the loss. It’s a beautiful keepsake to give as a memorial gift. The lavender color is peaceful and comforting.
This rosary can be used to pray for our loved one or displayed as a memento to remind us to pray for the repose of their soul or to give comfort that we are not forgotten and we are loved by God and the Blessed Virgin Mary who will never abandon us in our grief. They are there to bring comfort and hope. They will hold us through the sorrow of our loss.
It would also be a beautiful gesture for a bride who has recently lost her mother to use as a stem wrap or placed in her bridal bouquet to keep her Mother close by on that special day.
It may also be used in lieu of flowers and taken to a funeral home and placed with a card for a grieving family. To learn more about this rosary or to purchase from my Etsy store Click Here.
Warm Non Plated Raw Brass components make this rosary a lasting heirloom. Raw brass does not tarnish like sterling silver but darkens to a warm gold patina as it ages. Beautiful lavender faceted crystal is reminiscent of the blossoms of a vintage English Rose bush with its prolific blooms and classic scent. Pressed rose Czech glass “Our Father” beads with a dark topaz luster correlate with this rosary’s theme.
A Mother is the sweetly scented tenderness and firmness on which her children are properly formed and trained in virtue. The virtues and manners that she instills upon her offspring through her own example and thoughtful correction are observed in her children as they play, learn and grow into adulthood. We have much to thank our Mothers for: First and foremost they gave us life; and life eternal as part of God’s plan. They truly are the roses in this world as their example proves they have given of themselves to form the conscious of their children to what is good, right, proper and just. So, as an English rose is unique with a beautiful flower upon a stern thorny stem, let us remember the heart piercing thorns that our Mothers have also endured while raising their children for the common good of both God and Man. It is in celebration of their love that I offer this rosary. To Purchase Click Here
This handcrafted green Imperial Jasper gemstone and brass artisan rosary has designs incorporating the Holy Face of Jesus and one of its earliest devotees, the apostle St. Jude Thaddeus. Most people will recognize the popular image of the Saint with the flame of the Holy Spirit atop his head and a Holy Face medallion on a chain around his neck. But it was not a medal the Saint brought to heal the King of Edessa, but a cloth (quite possibly the Shroud of Turin or the separate burial cloth covering Jesus’ face and head). Hence, I added the Holy Face medal on the side with its image from the Shroud of Turin (and the Eucharist).Purchase Here
