AVE BEADS: 10 mm ‘druzy beads’ (inner crystals like tiny geodes) in deep iridescent (peacock) tones of the rainbow promise. Note how some break through the surface, like the oppression brought to Poland by the communist people. The tiny crevices open up to hope in the people.

PATER BEADS: Jet Matte beads, from another time, appear to be slashed, reminding us of how they found Father Jerzy’s body, slashed like the crucified Christ. The red 4mm beads that cap the Paters remind us of his martyrdom.
