I made this for a special someone. His birthday is coming up. But I am not naming names coz I have to suz it out first to see if he will like it when I show this to him.
He seems to love Hematite gemstone rosaries and he is wise in that. Hematite is a gemstone that is ideal for meditation, prayer, forgiveness, and healing.

I have used round polished hematite beads (6mm) and they feel marvelous!!!
(Note to self: get more of those sized hematite beads!)
Moonstone beads - round, 6mm
Lately I have been trying to figure out how to make various handmade and customized crosses/crucifixes.
This cross here is a chainmail cross. (I will try to put up some notes on how to make a chainmail cross.) Quite a unique and amazing cross. It will (of course) retain its shape but as you can see, is also very flexible. Ideal for the person looking for something special and unique. Also very ideal for the kinesthetic person.
I have also made the rosary center using chain mail techniques. This one has been adapted from the Japanese Flower chainmail. (I just didn't join to form a closed round and so it forms a kind of triangle instead). And I used a washer for the center. Nice ain't it? :D
The rosary links here have been constructed both for security and also to ensure that there are minimum number of kinks for the user.
