I had a special request to make a calla lily and since I needed another flower bead for my rosaries, so I decided to go for it. Plus what's more fun than making a gorgeous flower?? While making the bead, I discovered it's symbolism. A calla lily symbolizes beauty and grace, youth, femininity, innocence, purity, and modesty. This makes it a great wedding flower, but while making them,I thought they would also be a good symbolism for St. Clare. So with these beads, I am going to make wedding or bridal rosaries and also St. Clare chaplets. They will also be another flower bead (linked to my bead meaning page) for my multi-bead rosaries.
