A beautifully decorative vintage wall rosary dating from the 1980s with ivory glass pearls and an antique brass filigree connector set with a faceted garnet coloured glass cabochon. The first and last decades are separated by more brass filigree with tiny faceted glass accents. I have not repaired or changed this rosary in any way, preferring instead to keep its eccentricities-- the crucifix has at some point been replaced by a pearly, silver backed cross.
This long, oversized rosary would make a lovely addition to any rustic shabby chic corner or a decadent gothic accent. I have put it on my UK size 14 mannequin for scale. It measures 36" or 91.5cm long with a 7 1/2" or 19cm drop.
All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped with lavender and Scottish heather.
