Custom Rosaries

I made a couple of custom rosaries recently.  One used white cat’s eye cube-shaped beads, and the other used blue fiber optic beads.  The blue one also had green Swarovski crystals as accent beads around the Paters.  The green and blue together make me think of nature.

They also remind me of a French song by DePalmas called Sans Recours.  It has these lyrics:

Entre le ciel et l’enfer
Je n’ai pas eu de mal à choisir
Entre le bleu et le vert
Je sais quelle est la couleur à bannir

Basically translates as, between heaven and hell, I didn’t have a hard time choosing.  Between the blue and the green, I  know which color to reject.  Green represents this world, obviously, and blue is heaven.   I always liked that verse.  I thought it was clever.
