Sold, thank you!

Because of the nature of the shell, spiny oyster is extremely rare in round cut beads.  To find them in a 10mm size in such exquisite quality was extraordinary!  Naturally, they're quite pricey because of their rarity.  Needing only six is a great way to get a taste of this costly bead where a full rosary of spiny oyster would overwhelm most budgets. They pair beautifully with creamy white mother of pearl, which is a much more economical bead.  This left some room in pricing for the large and striking Spanish colonial crucifix and Our Lady of Guadalupe center.  The result is a delightful set of rosary beads which blends the classic and the eclectic.  So pretty!
