A perilous trip to find this Seashell Rosary.
I acquired this Seashell Rosary when I made a perilous little journey up an infamous hill in the seaside Colombian town of Cartagena. I was told by the locals not to dare walk up the small mountain due to its reputation for violent crime. So I hired a taxi driver to take me up to the Convent of La Popa which dates back to 1607 and overlooks the city. The experience of exploring such an old convent and the panoramic views of the city and the Caribbean was well worth the trip up. Not to mention discovering this awesome gift.
Say your prayers using these unique Shell Rosary beads.
This piece is one of my favorites ever. I just love the feel of seashell between my fingers as I say my prayers, imagining that I am sitting on a beach somewhere. With the shell beads and gold-color beads, this Rosary looks like it could have been pulled out of a long lost box of buried treasure.
Approximately 17.5″ long. Crucifix is just over 1.5″ long. Connected with durable plastic line.
