A rosary design begins with the selection of a quality crucifix and center medal. A variety of metals can be found in the collection from sterling silver and bronze to pewter and base metal.
Beads are then chosen and strung onto polyester bead cord. After stringing a knot is tied and nestled close to each bead or bead pattern. This technique is known as Pearl Knotting.
Most beads used in the rosary collection are natural stone or handmade glass. These beads vary slightly in size, shape and color which adds to their distinctive quality. The variation found in these materials is meant to enhance the design quality and the “one of a kind” nature of these pieces.
The chaplet designs and some bracelet styles are strung onto high quality professional bead wire. Most rosary bracelets are created using a durable high quality stretch cord.
In general you can expect your prayer beads to look like what is pictured. However, there are times when a vendor will unexpectedly discontinue or slightly alter components used in rosary making. Graceful Lady Rosaries reserves the right to make substitutions due to the availability of materials. Any changes made will be of equal quality and will not affect the integrity of the design.
