It isn't often that one comes across enough old padre beads at one time to make a rosary. These were a real find.
The cross is an antique from Ethiopia, about 2 inches by 3 inches. It was made from melted Ethiopian silver coins when the currency was devalued in the late 1800s. The antique Bohemian glass padre beads are hand-knotted with African coconut shell spacers on Irish linen bootlace. The stations of the rosary are antique Venetian glass king beads with stripe and eye patterns.
