Rosaries, Pearls and a Prayer

My latest creation is a pair of earrings ~ I don't actually WEAR dangles, but I'm moved to make them from time to time.  I put together two of my favorites to make these ~ rosaries and pearls.


The two crucifxes are from barn sale rosaries, and they hang from freshwater pearls and topaz beads. 

The findings and earwires are sterling silver.

I tend to use crucifixes in my vintage necklaces, although I do like how they seem to make a statement here.  And as with all of my vintage religious pieces, I feel a sense of wonder about those before me who used them to pray ~ while knowing they can hold that same power for me, or whoever ultimately becomes their owner.  They should be in my
Etsy shop
by the end of the week.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already (Friday deadline) and I hope you're having a great week!
