Here in northeast Wisconsin, we can get some brutal winters. Nonetheless, I still love the outdoors and the change of seasons. So I had this idea to make a rosary that reminds me of the outdoors. The wood-patterned Hail Mary beads are actually stone and they remind me of the woods. I also sprinkled in some white howlite beads that remind me of the winter snow. And the green Our Father beads symbolize the spring for me. And I used the Miraculous Medal for the centerpiece. As usual, the chain and hardware is silver-plated steel.
