Commission for a Birthday Rosary
At church Sunday a fellow choir member asked whether she could commission one for her husband's birthday, which is this Thursday. I'm glad I had all of the supplies on hand -- I usually buy the crucifixes and centerpieces as needed because they're expensive (I use only sterling silver).
Here is the rosary I made for Paul today. Most of the beads are onyx, but the Lord's Prayer beads are aquamarine Swarovski crystal with sterling bead caps -- aquamarine is the birthstone for March. The chain and wire are also sterling.
So, happy birthday, Paul! And, since you are Polish, I will sing, "Sto lat, sto lat, niech żyje, żyje nam!"
