Handmade Hematite Rosary and Cross
A hematite rosary is especially valued for its soothing, calming, and healing qualities. It is the hematite gemstone that is said to inherently possess and exude these qualities. Because of or quite apart from these metaphysical qualities, I must say that there is an undeniably soothing to hold a hematite rosary in one’s hand. Here, this is enhanced by the polished surface and smooth roundness of the hematite beads.

- double-sided rosary center (Sacred Heart, Virgin Mary) in alloy metal

Handmade Hematite Cross
The cross here is made with wire coiling and wire wrapping. I rather love the uncomplicated simplicity of this cross. It is probably one of the easiest custom handmade crosses to create.
I intend to make more of these. Not the same of course. But definitely a hematite rosary. I love the calming feel of them.
