Hi, Yesterday I completed this rosary as I received the Madonna and Child pewter/crystal crucifix and center (thank you Phyllis at Rosaries by Speziale). The beads are strung on sterling silver soft flex wire which I love to work with. This rosary will be designated R27 when listed in my etsy store and is eligible for my Christmas in July and my Summer 25 discounts. The Pater (Our Father) beads are Swarovski clear crystal round, highly faceted beads between 8 and 12mm accented on both sides by silver rondelles with small crysal inlays. The Ave (Hail Mary) beads are Swarovski bicones of approximately 5mm. The spacers between the Paters and Aves are 2.5mm sterling silver beads. The Madonna & Child Heart Rosary Set is an American made Pewter Heart Shaped center depicting Mary and baby Jesus with little crystal clear stones (1" x 3/4") and a beautiful matching Crucifix (2" x 1 1/4"). The full length of the R27 Crystal Rosary is approximately 18 1/4". Thank you for sharing this blog article with me.
