St. Francis Rosary
Our tribute to nature and to the protection of animals is found in this Rosary, dedicated to Saint Francis, who represents humility and love for all creation. Natural Picasso Jasper beads of browns, greens, and the colors of nature are used throughout the decades and are separated by deep green jasper stone, with delicate gold tone caps, as Our Father beads. The centerpiece is a traditional, but floral-bordered, bronze Miraculous Medal and the ornate crucifix is also bronze. This Rosary features a vintage reproduction of St. Francis bronze medal with a lovely patina hanging below the Miraculous Medal.
In the design and creation of this Rosary, we wanted to evoke colors of nature, for which St. Francis is commonly known. Francis of Assisi is one of the Catholic Church's most venerated and beloved saints and is known for his ministry to the poor & underprivileged, his care for nature & animals, and his founding of the Franciscan order. To create the feeling of the world he was devoted to, we used natural Picasso Jasper stone beads, which include greens, browns, and reds, making the string feel like a part of nature. Jasper is considered by many as a powerful grounding stone that promotes connection to the earth so along with its earthy colors, it seemed perfect for this Rosary. For the Our Father beads, we used a larger, natural, deep green jasper stone bead. The combination of all of them together has the feeling of being in a forest. Solid brass beads were used to accent each of beads used for decades and Our Fathers, giving a golden accent to the Rosary. The color of bronze further complements the gold and greens, so we used a bronze finish Miraculous Medal as the centerpiece along with a bronze finish crucifix. To add an additional devotional focus to this particular Rosary, we found a vintage reproduction of a St. Francis bronze medal with a lovely patina and it hangs below the Miraculous Medal.

Everyone Has Such Kind Words To Say!
“I just received my rosary as a Birthday Gift, and I must say, they are the prettiest Rosaries that I have ever received. Beautifully Hand Crafted Rosaries with Pink Rose Quartz for “Our Father” Beads and White Mother of Pearl Beads for the “Hail Mary” Decades, with a delicate Miraculous Metal surrounded with small flowers and finished with a white enamel Crucifix. Just Beautiful!”
“The Rosary has the most unique beautiful gold and blue agate beads, with a silver centerpiece and crucifix both containing the fleur de lis, the Virgin Mary. Never could I have imagined such a magnificent custom-made order that could correspond to my family’s cost of arms. Excellent workmanship that I will treasure forever.”
“These are the most beautiful turquoise rosaries I have ever seen. Super high luster and high quality. The craftsmanship is superior and outstanding…completely hand-made. The Crucifix and St Michael medal are highly detailed and came with a beautifully decorated accompanying pouch – an added bonus. Simply stunning. Seller is delightful. Don’t hesitate to order.
“The quality was evident before I even opened the box. Inside, the rosary was in a zippered pouch imprinted with a print of the Virgin Mary. Just holding the pouch bolstered my impression of quality. A personal card was included describing the rosary, source of beads, the meaning of the medal, and history of the cross. Then I opened the pouch and was gleefully shocked at the pure beauty of the Rosary. Hand-carved beads connected by ornate cylindrical silver links with a metal crucifix and small silver medal. Needless to say, this rosary definitely exceeded my expectations and the value far exceeds the cost. “
“I recently received a gorgeous hand-crafted rosary and the attention to detail is just amazing! The medal of St. Andrew makes it special because his name is in the DeAndrea name and my grandson’s name is Andrew. I love the rosary and the lovely case you sent it in. It will surely be a treasured family heirloom for generations to come!”
