Antique Bronze Renaissance Rosary

About this design:

I was so pleased with my first rosary that I decided to make one with the feel of old world. It has the feeling of antiquity to it.


Antiqued bronze filigree cross and centerpiece. The bronzed metal beads and ornate bead caps are complement of Blue Moon Beads. These gorgeous Czech designer beads where purchased from Lima. They emote what I was trying to achieve. Perfect !!! Tiny 3mm bronze beads and 4mm deep red crystals complete the design.

    OBL, this is gorgeous! Your “old world” theme definitely comes across with that antique bronze and red combo. Which color Czech glass is that? I love it! You could be the Prop Maker for DaVinci Code II ;-) wowie

    The Antiqued Bronze Renaissance rosary has the
    Czech glass Cherry Chip designer rondelle 6x9mm
    beads that I purchased from LIMA beads. They’ve got an excellent selection of the Czech designer beads and I may also say…at an excellent price. Cheaper than what you’d pay for the same on Etsy. To Kate: Wow !!! Thank you for the great complement !!!
