A chain of ten small grains and a hanging Crucifix. The Ave Maria is a sweet lullaby, it is the praise song of the children for the Holy Mary. A People's Bead Winner!

This is currently one of my favorite beads. It is so delicate and beautiful. The letter on the side is a great touch. I have it next to my Rose glass bead and it looks gorgeous.

This is a very light weight bead, and that may be a plus or a minus depending on taste. Not heavy like the sun circle, and smaller. The meaning is lovely, the lettering gorgeous, and the tiny light cross makes for a beautiful design and of course is central to the symbolism. It is a nice "framing" bead, and I like one on each side of 3 center beads, or attached toward the end. Which is how, I suppose, I wound up with 3!
