Handmade Job's Tear Teardrop Crucifix Catholic Rosary

The Rosary Lady

Regular price $25.95
This unusual rosary is made of Job's Tears, (Coix lacryma-jobi).

Coix lacryma-jobi is a tall grain-bearing tropical plant of the family Poaceae (grass family) native to Southeast Asia but elsewhere cultivated in gardens as an annual. It has been naturalized in the southern United States and the New World tropics. (Excerpt from Wikipedia)

The seeds are plucked from the plant when dried and strung on wire or string to make jewelry and rosaries.

The center medal depicts Mother Mary crowned by stars on the front and The Sacred Heart of Jesus on the reverse. Both the center and the crucifix are nickel silver, as is the wire used in stringing the beads.

This rosary measures approximately 24 inches when laid flat. Due to the variance in size of the Job's Tears seeds, the length of the rosary may vary as well.
