The final touches

After a final shipment of clay I got in today (I don't even want to count how many times I had to order more for this bead!), I was able to finish up the last of Mary's rays. Now I just need to add some more clay around the edges to make it round for rolling. Then the fun begins....and many, many more prayers that thing turns out. I vow never to make a bead this big again- ever!

Oh, Sarah, it's beautiful!! It's been really fun watching you as you make it, I can't imagine it in a small bead, how does it go from this to something so small?

Glad you are settled in, lots of changes in your lives, hope it's blessed!


Beautiful icon for use as a sacramental in prayer!! Hope your priest blesses it soon. La Virgin de las Americas: Our Lady of Guadelupe is helping to bring many youg and old 'home' to the Church. May God bless you in this important ministry.
