Commissioned Crucifix

A male musician here in Maputo requested this rosary made of faceted Onyx beads and sterling silver wire. Designing the cross and triad piece was quite a challenge, but I am quite satisfied with the results. I hope the musician enjoys the rosary. Maybe someday I'll catch a glimpse of it in a Mozambican music video!

~Laundrygirl - I thought of you while doing the wirework. We have the heart you made up on the wall in the room where I do my jewelry making.

~Amber - Thank you! I want to make one of my own now - though I'm not Catholic, I loved how the rosary looked.

~Girl from Moz - Obrigada, pá!

~Potash - Super bling here in Moz. Designer sunglasses, designer cell phones, designer jeans, fast cars, clubs...I suppose the world of aspiring musicians is similar no matter where one is these days.

Good luck for the book. I just caught up on your blog. I'd missed it!

~??? - Thank yoooooou!
