Catholic Pearls Rosaries

   The rosary is one of the most powerful sacramentals of the Catholic Church originating in the early centuries of Christianity.The rosary is part of Catholic veneration of Mary, which has been promoted by numerous popes.

  Devotion to the rosary is one of the most notable features of popular Catholic spirituality. Pope John Paul II placed the rosary at the very center of Christian spirituality and called it "among the finest and most praiseworthy traditions of Christian contemplation.

   According to pious tradition, the concept of the rosary was given to Saint Dominic in an apparition of the Virgin Mary in the year 1214 in the church of Prouille. This Marian apparition received the title of Our Lady of the Rosary.

  The rosary has been featured in the writings of Roman Catholic figures from saints to popes and continues to be mentioned in reported Marian apparitions, with a number of promises attributed to the power of the rosary.

  I wanted to connect two wonderful aspects of mother earth religion and pearls, which come from nature; to design a rosary, which in addition to being a religious symbol with much power, it is also beautiful and glamorous.

  Amazonite is a mineral of limited occurrence. Formerly it was obtained almost exclusively from the area of Miass in theIlmensky Mountains, 50 miles southwest of ChelyabinskRussia, where it occurs in granitic rocks. More recently, high-quality crystals have been obtained from Pike's PeakColorado. Crystals of amazonite can also be found in Crystal Park, El Paso County, Colorado. Other locations in the United States which yield amazonite include the Morefield Mine in Amelia, Virginia. It is also found in pegmatite in Madagascar and in Brazil

   As a metaphysical healer, Amazonite soothes the chakras and alings the physical body to the etheric. It's particularly rejuvenating to the heart and throat Chakras, enhancing loving communication on all levels. It balance one's masculine/feminine energies as well as many aspects of thepersonality. It awakens compassion for others by allowing one to perceive both sides of a problem and accepting differing points of view. Amazonite stimulates artistic ability, creativity and the powers of clairvoyance in its wearer.

Alpaca or Nickel Silver

  Nickel silver, Mailechort, German silver, Argentan, new silver,nickel brass, albata, Alpacca, Alpaca or electrum is a copper alloy with nickel and often zinc. The usual formulation is 60% copper, 20% nickel and 20% zinc, but this can change. for example: Higher amounts of copper make the nickel silver metal more ductile and more resistant to corrosion. Higher amounts of nickel make nickel silver more white and silver-like.  Higher amounts of zinc slightly improves corrosion resistance, lowers the melting point, raises its strength and hardness, but decreases its ductility.

  This material was first used in China centuries ago. German and other European countries began producing it later, both as a silver imitation and as a base for silverplate.

  It is used in zippers, better-quality keys, costume jewellery, for making musical instruments (e.g., flutes, clarinets), and is preferred for the track in electrically powered model railway layouts, as its oxide is conductive. It is widely used in the production of coins (e.g. Portuguese escudo and the former GDR marks). Its industrial and technical uses include marine fittings and plumbing fixtures for its corrosion resistance, and heating coils for its high electrical resistance. 

 In Jewellery you can found a differents things make with the nickel silver, sheet, half round wire and round wire used for bracelets, rings, belt buckles, ear rings, wire wrapping, necklace and pendants.

 A type to prevent tarnish:

 You can clean the wire by soaking in half water/half white vinegar, then dry it and polish it. wipe the nickel silver wire down and then polish it, if you have polish for jewellery, it is better! 

 Here I let you a few example of how to use it:
