st. expedite rosary
Originally uploaded by Karma Zain
This chaplet is completely handmade, which is a colossal pain in the rear end, but I think it turned out pretty well. Definitely one of a kind. St. Expedite is called on for fast luck, to break through obstacles, and for an end to procrastination, and is often considered the patron saint of computer programmers.
Measures just over ten inches from end to end. Decade loop is about 8.5 inches. Made with pressed glass and Czech glass beads. Centerpiece is a red and gold foil Murano style glass bead. Decade markers are red and gold foil lined glass beads. Medal is pewter, imported from Italy.
Part of the proceeds from voodoo rosary sales go to Fonkoze.org.
Fonkoze is a Haitian foundation that supports the organized poor, providing them with essential banking services throughout the country and assisting borrowers with literacy, business training and health education.
