Montana Sky Rosary

About this design:

Blue is my favorite color, and when I started making rosaries, I knew I had to do one in this color. The Swarovski crystals called to me, and pairing them with this cross creates a certain elegance.

    Very pretty. I have a collection of rosaries starting with my First Holy Communion one! It’s not often you see them anymore, or anyone who makes them! Great job!

    I also love rosaries And yours is unique and beautiful. I’ve been making medieval rosaries lately. they are different from modern rosaries, there’s no set number of beads and they don’t always have crosses. I’ll try to post them when I’m done.

    Just lovely. Montana Blue is a hypnotic color,isn’t it? Can I say that your simple loops are impeccable? Soooo many of them,and you just kept on keeping on. ;) Simple loops can be tricky,when you’ve done a lot ot them..I can appreciate how labor intensive this was.

    Thank you, Nancy! I’ve thought about getting a one-step tool that will do loops, but I’m not convinced that the quality would be the same.

    I do love this color!
