The Rosary is a form of prayer used especially in the Catholic Church named for the string of prayer beads used to count the component prayers.

Murano beads are intricate glass beads influenced by Venetian glass artists. Since 1291, the Murano glassmakers have refined technologies such as crystalline glass, enamelled glass, glass with threads of gold, multicolored glass, milk glass and imitation gemstones made of glass producing beads and glasswork unmatched anywhere in the world. The process of Murano bead-making begins with the production of color canes. The chemical compounds involved in color fabrication are extremely sensitive so they must be mixed with absolute accuracy.

Most Murano beads are made using an air pump burner lampworking technique. The lamp-work method is the most time consuming method of glass bead-making, as each bead must be formed individually. Using a torch for heat, Murano glass rods and tubes are heated to a molten state and wrapped around a metal rod until the desired shape is achieved. Several layers of different colored glass as well as gold and silver leaf are used to produce the desired effect. After the bead is slowly cooled, it is removed from the rod which produces a hole for eventual stringing.

Would make a cherished gift for any Catholic Christian. Perfect for birthday, Baptism, Confirmation, or any other special gift-giving occasion!
