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.
I was asked to make a wire-wrapped version of this rosary. It will not break apart. Since it takes twice as long and 4 times the silver wire, I have to charge more. Just to let you know, though, all my rosaries are guaranteed for my lifetime. I will fix anything that's broken to make it like new.
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.
