Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Red Jasper 6/8mm beads
This is a beautifully made, heirloom quality Anglican Rosary, the quality of the materials and the crafting are very well done.
I expected the stones to be a little heavier. The cross was also smaller and lighter than expected. I bought a jasper rosary with the same cross 10 years ago and the cross is much more substantial. All that said it is still a beautiful design.
We have beaded prayer beads in the past that use only 8mm beads - versus the 6mm/8mm designs on the website - with a larger cross for balance. But the smaller designs have been far more popular. Mona, you have given motivation to add a larger rosary or two to the website! I truly hope the design of the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise compensates a bit for the heft of your rosary. Peace.
