NO TWO ALIKE
NEVER TO BE REPEATED 
A remarkable - one of a kind Klew bead chaplets .  Two sizes shown below. The smaller Klew bead is about  .75in and the larger is 1.75 inches.  Each chaplet boasts an incredible hand made Pater bead by California artist, Karen Lewis.  No two are exactly alike. These beads are remarkably tough, growing in beauty as they are prayed over the years. She is only able to make a limited number in any one combination of color and design. Once gone, there is no way to repeat it.

Each color you see is a different piece of clay.  She has layered and sliced each design sequence very thin to create these remarkable beads. Note the rich variegation of the foundation bead that the appliqued designs cover. Our images do not do them justice.  The Ave beads are either antiqued bone or textured brown bodhi seeds.

TOUGHER THAN GLASS
 These beads are very tough, tougher than most glass. We have seen beads over 5 years old under constant use that are more beautiful than the day they were designed. It was on a key chain and had not lost any of its original design. They gained a beautiful patina that only age and use can give.

The ones imaged above are long gone, never to be repeated again.

SYMBOLISM THROUGH COLOR
We believe the RosaryWorkshop.com is being directed to make our rosaries a more visual and symbolic journey of the dedication than it has in the past. You will not only see more of this direction used through color choices but in texture. When you see them, we hope you will be more visually in touch with the story.  And when you pray them we hope 2000 years of history will melt. Not only with Our Lady as she tells the story of her beloved son, but with the one to whom the rosary is dedicated or the scripture passage that inspired it. We hope and pray this will help open up a 4th and new dimension of spirituality in your heart.
