Handmade Dried Flower Rosary GOLD WIRE
Each Hail Mary bead (53 beads) is handmade using a combination of clay and your dried flowers. Typically, only a few petals are needed for a full rosary, but I can combine varying flowers and even greenery so please send me whatever flowers you would like included. I ask for two flowers just in case I have a bad batch.
I use tarnish-resistant wire and wire wrap EVERY single joint to discourage breakage (the price reflects the time involved in doing this). The Our Father beads are usually a semi-precious stone or faceted glass bead. You choose your wire color, gold, silver, or antique bronze, and a color for your Our Father beads. I typically choose which center, crucifix, and style of Our Father bead looks best with flowers after a brief consultation with you, unless you have something specific in mind if it is available.
Your handmade beads will be a neutral color of varying shades depending on the amount of flowers used and their colors. Any photos of a colored Hail Mary bead were made that way because the flowers were PREVIOUSLY dyed and that is how I received them. I do NOT dye dried flowers and truly prefer not to use a colored clay as it diminishes the ability to see your flowers in the beads and it is not my aesthetic.
Centers, crucifixes, and Our Father beads pictured are not always available, but every accommodation to find something comparable will be made.
