CREATURES of the SEA
RLS:  LIVING SEA SERIES
 8  Or speak to the earth, it will teach you; The fish of the sea, they will inform you. 

Job 12:8 (Tanakh)
  8  Or speak to the earth, it will teach you; The fish of the sea, they will inform you.

CREATURES OF GOD
GOD SPOKE - THE EARTH AND WATERS RESPONDED
Think of all the treasures that still sleep beneath the crust of the earth and under the sea - all coming from the word of God - he spoke and the earth and waters responded to his word. They are his creatures. The same God word that created the Word, Jesus! The same God who created each of us. And all his creatures, his created, sing praise God's promise. We thank God for His glory and His word which is true.
+
SIRACH 43:10-12
 A weapon against the flood waters stored on high, lighting up the firmament by its brilliance, 11 Behold the rainbow! Then bless its Maker, for majestic indeed is its splendor; 12 It spans the heavens with its glory, this bow bent by the mighty hand of God.
 + 
MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD
Think of it!  the semi precious stones used in these rosaries are millions of years old and were spoken into existence by the word of God! They are his creatures. Rosaries in this collection that are made from these ancient fossils and gemstones are often strung in their natural form as chunks or chips reminding us of the early church fathers who used pebbles to count their prayers. 

ONE CREATURE AT A TIME
this page is inspired by Creatures of the Sea,  Creatures of God 

LUKE.19:39-40

 39  Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”  40  He said in reply, “I tell you, if they keep silent, the stones will cry out!”

WHAT IS AN AMMONITE?
 AVE BEADS:  We chose natural wood for the Ave beads as they visually set up these rare and beautiful Ammonites. Small turquoise spacers remind us of the sea. PATER BEADS: Ammonites as beads are new to us.  We have collected them for years when visiting gem and mineral shows.  We are told they are approx 250 million years old before extinction (some say 450) - and will add more as we learn --- but more info under PRICING LINK below.

MICAH 7:18-19
  18  Who is a God like you, who removes guilt and pardons sin for the remnant of his inheritance; Who does not persist in anger forever, but instead delights in mercy, 19  And will again have compassion on us, treading underfoot our iniquities? You will cast into the depths of the sea all our sins;

  EACH GATE MADE OF A SINGLE PEARL
(click icon above for larger image) 

BEAUTIFUL BAROQUE PEARLS
 AVE BEADS: A close up of the dark brown lava beads that set up the powerful color and texture of the baroque pearl beads.  PATER BEADS: Have never seen any beads that held so much individual natural or cultured beauty, color and textures as these baroque pearls have.  These irregular curves, pinches and lumpy nuggets spoke out to us at the gem show and we knew it was now or never!  We hope you enjoy them as much as we did putting this rosary together! And to think each was formed by layers of nacre trying to cover up an uninvited object! (read more about baroque pearls under pricing link given below.)

REVELATION 21:21
  21  The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made from a single pearl; and the street of the city was of pure gold, transparent as glass.

 Note some filigree caps differ on each end adding to the overall uniqueness of the Pater bead. And to think each was formed by layers of nacre trying to cover up an uninvited guest (object) ! (read more about baroque pearls under cart pricing link given below.)

 LIKE A TREASURE BURIED IN A FIELD
(click icon above for larger image) 

ANCIENT FOSSIL SHELLS
 AVE BEADS: 9 x 12mm black lava beads make this a large rosary - powerful to hold and to pray.    PATER BEADS:  Prehistoric shell fossils from the deep where water once stood? We are learning that most fossils are found in shale, sandstone or limestone. Invaluable for identifying time frames for other finds. Dated through radio carbon to be about 450 million years old.  That is before there was life on land!  These ancient fossil shells are new to us in bead form. We believe they either 'bi-valve'  or "brachiopods'.  There is something about them that connects us with their maker as their voice of praise is recorded in stone.

MATTHEW 13:44-46
  44  “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field,* which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. 46  When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it.
