5 decades of wooden beads are separated by carved bone skulls for Pater beads. Center is a St. Benedict cross adorned with a tiny St. Michael medal featuring yellow-gold enamel highlights.
Decade loop is ~26.5" so it will easily fit over your head if you want to wear it. Pendant is 1.75" long.
Hand-painted pendant is imported from Mexico, painted in enamels, cured, and clearcoated for durability.
The completed piece is then dressed and fixed on my Santisima Muerte altar, where it will reside until it finds its new home. Prayers and offerings are an integral part of the work I do for any piece I make on the altar and under the aegis of a saint or spirit, so I'm happy to pray for you/your specific petition as I prepare to remove the rosary from the altar and send it to you. Just reply to your order acknowledgment email to send me your petition/prayer request.
I work with Santisima Muerte in the older "three color" tradition, but I have painted these in custom colors for customers before and I might have or can make one in other colors if you prefer a different robe color. Just message me and ask (please ask before checking out to confirm I can do what you're wanting).
HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5 business days and will be longer for custom-finished items and large orders. Why? Two reasons:
One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, only decanting your oil order from the mother bottle and adding herbs and prayers after your order's come in, for instance. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience.
Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line (yes, we have DSL) or the postal service just not coming here at all for a few days because a storm washed our mailbox into the ditch down the dirt road, stuff like that.
USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that I cannot possibly predict individual sensitivities or allergic reactions. All-natural does not equal hypoallergenic, y'all! If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.
LEGALESE: As required by law, all items are sold as curios and/or for educational purposes in the study of folklore and popular religion. I use these items myself though - I don't sell anything I haven't used myself - and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
