New Luther rose beads

What else can you do with a Luther rose seal ring? Make beads, of course, like this set of recently-commissioned prayer beads for a pastor friend of mine…

With a good-quality clay, the seal ring makes a beautiful impression. In plain white, it looks like fine porcelain. With a wash of burnt umber, it takes on the look of carved, antique ivory. I have a feeling that more jewelry-making will be happening soon.  🙂

  1. Hi– you can contact me at to let me know exactly what you’d like. 🙂 A set of handmade beads like this would be around the $40 mark. I can make them white or with the burnt umber wash, and attach a similar sort of crucifix or a special-ordered one, as you’d prefer.
