I stared at my beads supply (as I often do) and figured that these colors would look good. The Hail Mary beads are 8mm steel blue painted glass beads with splashes of black, white, and gold. The Our Father beads are also 8mm, but jet black glass. The centerpiece is an image of St. Michael the Archangel, defending us in battle. The chain and links are all silver-plated steel.
