Rosary for my mom...

I'm making this friends only so my mom can't see it, since she hasn't gotten it yet. Heh. I'll unlock it after she gets the Rosary.

I made this for my mom; it's my first attempt at 'pearl knotting' in beading & I'm really happy with how it turned out:

It's a Rosary for my mom, who decided to join the church this last year after my little bro. died in an avalanche: he had joined the Jesuit Catholic church on his own as he found a sense of community there, and mom decided to follow his path in that way. anyhows: I made the rosary very "earthy" because she & Pete liked to climb mountains together so I wanted it to have that feeliing & I think I got that with the flowers & boulder-like handmade silver beads from Tibet & the nice brown silk rope.

you can see the knots well here... & the clam fixtures for attaching the pieces made.

here's a photo of the whole Rosary.

I x-posted this to craftgrrl here: in this post...
