A WILLING PRAYER PARTNER 
Antiqued filigree capped Basha beads make rare and beautiful Pater beads.  Basha calls this bead, 'Pasha'.  Basha beads are impossible to scan as the light picks up differently at each turn of the hand.  The colors are deeply embedded into the glass and the surface is matted. This creates the appearance of ancient archival glass from a 1000+ year old dig.

MARK 7:32-37
 32  And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment and begged him to lay his hand on him. 33  He took him off by himself away from the crowd. He put his finger into the man's ears and, spitting, touched his tongue;

34  then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him, "Ephphatha!" (that is, "Be opened!")  35 And (immediately) the man's ears were opened, his speech impediment was removed, and he spoke plainly. 36 He ordered them not to tell anyone. But the more he ordered them not to, the more they proclaimed it.

37  They were exceedingly astonished and they said, "He has done all things well. He makes the deaf hear and (the) mute speak." 
(rosary inspired by scripture above)

ANTIQUE 'HAND PRESSED' AVE BEADS
The soft matte cubes with no corners gives the hand a willing prayer partner.  Each has been hand pressed and are no longer available.  They are from our private collection and when gone, unable to replace.  'pressed beads' are madeone at a time from glass rods or cane that has been softened through reheating, then put in a mold to be perfectly formed. This requires a master in glass making.

"The subtle rainbow colors reminded me of the colors that play through the early morning windows of my favorite New Mexico chapel.  The sanctuary table is alive in these deep, rich tones. Then the Mass begins and my strength is renewed and I am renewed and my heart is opened to receive Eucharist."

~ "BE OPENED V" ROSARY ~
"EPHPHATHA!" (that is, "BE OPENED!")
He healed. He healed by saying 'Ephphatha, Be Opened. Being opened is vital to being healed. Being closed shuts down the power, the love of God. We must open our hearts and our ears to hear his word, then let our tongue be unbridled so we can speak the word of the Lord.
