It came together without problems, just a little slower as I so very carefully, wrapped the wire to the chain. The movement in the tenner amazed me, it felt fantastic and because of that movement sat in the hand as easily as my wire tenners which I use smaller Ave beads (8mm) ~ this tenner has 10mm Aves.
I love this tenner, it is earthy and magestic in appearance, thanks to the Fossilized gemstone beads and solid, unpolished bronze...
The Eucharistic Adoration medal is incredible, I have not seen one so spectacular than this, other than the Our Lady of Mt Carmel scarf medal I have used in the past. I chose a Fleur de Lis cut-out crucifix matches beautifully with the cut-out work in the Eucharistic medal.
I've done something very different ...I've used 10mm Aves and the spaces are far bigger than anything I've ever created..and it feels perfect in the hand, fingering from one Ave to another..
Now to test it's durability ~ I believe it to be VERY durable...the weeks and months ahead with daily use, will tell. I'm very happy.
I name this tenner ~ Heaven on Earth.
