One of a Kind Handmade Wire-Wrapped Heirloom Catholic Rosary of True Solid Bronze and Green Onyx. The Ave Maria beads are Grade AAA 8mm faceted green onyx and are capped in bronze on both sides. The Pater Noster beads are Grade AAA 14-15mm faceted green onyx accented with bronze filigree bead caps, bronze Bali spacers, bronze rose beads and 4mm faceted onyx beads on each end. Accents of additional green onyx beads at the Crucifix and the Centerpiece. The beautiful Celtic Crucifix, St. Patrick Rosary Center with Shamrocks and double-sided St. Patrick / St. Brigid Medal are antique museum pieces that have been recast in true natural solid bronze in the USA. The rosary is substantial at 36 inches long. The solid bronze fleur de lis is my trademark. Each bead is wire-wrapped by hand with solid bronze wire to ensure a rosary that will last. This Rosary is considered unbreakable and should never come apart.
Saint Patrick (5th century CE) is the patron saint of Ireland and one of the most successful Christian missionaries in history. He was a Roman citizen of Britain (known as Patricius) who was captured by pirates at the age of sixteen and sold into slavery in Ireland. He escaped back to Britain, became ordained as a bishop, and returned to the land of his captivity as a missionary in c. 432/433 CE. He is credited with expanding literacy in Ireland through the monastic orders he established, revising and codifying the Brehon Laws, and converting the country to Christianity. He was not the first Christian missionary to Ireland but is the most famous. His influence on the laws and culture of Ireland was enormous as he championed the causes of women, the poor, and slaves while conferring with kings and nobles. His death date is celebrated on 17 March but the year he died, as with his year of birth, is unknown.
Saint Brigid of Kildare or Brigid of Ireland (Irish: Naomh Bríd; Latin: Brigida; c. 451 – 525) is one of Ireland's patron saints, along with Patrick and Columba. Irish hagiography makes her an early Irish Christian nun, abbess, and foundress of several monasteries of nuns, including that of Kildare in Ireland, which was famous and was revered. Her feast day is 1 February, which was originally a pagan festival called Imbolc, marking the beginning of spring. Her feast day is shared by Dar Lugdach, who tradition says was her student, close companion, and the woman who succeeded her.
The Rosary has not been blessed, so please have it blessed by your parish priest.
Care and Cleaning: Clean the beads with a damp soft cloth. The bronze will tarnish and can be cleaned with any good bronze cleaning product- but take care not to get the cleaning fluids on the beads. I hope you enjoy praying it as much as I enjoyed designing and making it.

"Some people are so foolish that they think they can go through life without the help of the Blessed Mother. Love the Madonna and pray the Rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother." ~St. Padre Pio
