ST PATRICK'S BREASTPLATE ROSARY ~ in bronze
This rosary is named in honour of one of my favourite morning prayers ~ The St Patrick's Breastplate. This rosary has a very earthy look, with the overall colour being a sandy, earth colour, highlighted with gorgeous greens. The Aves have 'rivulets' of green running through the gemstone. The Paters contain fantastic shades of green with touches of rust here and there. The ancient prayer of St Patrick gives glory to the Blessed Trinity, so I have attached a stunning medal depicting the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. St Patrick himself, is featured in the simple rosary centre and an Irish Penal Cross has been used, on the back is carved the year of creation of the original piece, from which this vintage reproduction has been hand cast from: 1722. For lovers of St Patrick and all things Irish, this rosary is a gem.
