RAA - AMERICAN BEAD ARTISTS SERIES
inspired by the waters of the Holy Land

When ice is melted it becomes water. When glass is heated it becomes liquid  - so then the link between the glassmakers and the water of the bible below. With the new interest in glass beadmaking, the Rosary Workshop decided a few years ago to honor the beadmakers by using their work in our rosaries. Our first ones sold out so quickly we knew others saw their beauty, too.
+
Any of the major Bead shows from Tucson to Milwaukee, from New York to Los Angeles will reveal how beads are formed from rods of glass cane and fire in gifted hands to become miniature works of art. Artists like Basha, Karen Lewis (Klew Beads) and Grace Ma became favorites.  See what you think of our newest collections as they grow. Below we have incorporated some of the work of these beadmakers into our rosaries, chaplets and religious jewelry. We hope you enjoy.

JOHN 6:25-27
 25 And when they found him across the sea they said to him, "Rabbi, when did you get here?" Jesus answered them and said, "Amen, amen, I say to you, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled.  27 Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him the Father, God, has set his seal."

INSPIRED BY THE WATERS OF THE HOLY LAND
This series gave way to the Waters of the Holy Land because they appeared to tell a story and reminded us of the time Jesus spent in Capharnum and along the rocky shores of the Jordan, the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee, (also known in scripture as the Sea of Genesareth or Sea of Tiberius.)  Lampwork Glass Pater beads by American Bead Artist, Grace Ma (CA).

~  SEA of GALILEE SERIES ~
 A PILGRIMAGE EXPERIENCE
"A few years ago while staying in the costal city of Tiberius, Sister Frances and I were jolted out of our late afternoon nap by a loud and thunderous banging on the windows and balcony doors of our 7th story room.  We looked across the room at each other, silently wondering.

LUKE 8:23
   .... A squall blew over the lake, and they were taking in water and were in danger. 24 They came and woke him saying, "Master, master, we are perishing!" He awakened, rebuked the wind and the waves, and they subsided and there was a calm.  25  Then he asked them, "Where is your faith?"
 +
WHERE IS YOUR FAITH?
It was a ferocious wind blowing down from the hills behind us to the Sea of Galilee in front - with such force - I thought the glass would break!  I began to feel the fear of the fishermen on that open and stormy sea during the time of Jesus! And as if His words were still in the air, I heard him say, 'where is your faith!'"

SANDY SEA - RAA.2812
sand / blue / jet -
swirls of sandy tones are punctuated with tiny bits of blue, all caught in a jet background. Ave beads are faceted 'gemstones' in a black 'picasso' (includes irregular flecks of grey). They remind one of the lava beaches found in Pacific islands, all water is connected. Yet the Galilee is in the center of the world. (And yes, there is a fish called 'Peter's Fish! in the Sea of Galilee)
