Handmade lampwork floats sapphire crystals over a sea of molten silver!  The Aves are vintage 9mm crystal rondelles of luminescent sapphire shimmering with gold picasso wash.  The Paters are stunning 15mm lampwork by Kalera Stratton (see detail below).  The rosary is joined with bronze centerpiece featuring the Immaculate Conception (obverse shows Our Lady of Lourdes), culminating in a substantial  2.5" bronze crucifix.  The camera cannot capture the subtle glow of these beads!
