Pope Francis Koa Wood Rosary Beads

Pope Francis Koa Wood Rosary Beads

Regular price $465.00 Sale

I was asked to make the rosary that would be presented to our new Pope Francis as a gift from the United States Government. I was honored and amazed. Although I won't make another one just exactly like it, I have made a very similar one.  This is one version of it.  Truly a family heirloom. 8mm Koa beads with 12mm Our Father beads.

Koa is no longer available to me through the only supplier (that I know of) in the Islands.  My friend, Matt Medeiros (who made the box for the Pope), said he would make some for us.  The cost went up, I know, but I want to be able to make it worth while to Matt.

Made with Koa Wood which is a wood indigenous to Hawaii with sterling silver accents and Argentium Sterling wire.  The Hail Mary beads are 8mm; the Our Father beads are 12mm.
