… 44 for if he were not expecting the fallen to rise again, it would have been useless and foolish to pray for them in death. 45 But if he did this with a view to the splendid reward that awaits those who had gone to rest in godliness, it was a holy and pious thought. 46 Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be freed from this sin….. 2 Macabees 12:44
MEMENTO MORI (‘Remember Thy Death’: Inspired by antique rosaries and chaplets in European museums and books from the the late middle ages -15c up. Skulls on rosaries and chaplet were very popular during this time in history. Working with rare components does make a difference in the finished design. Crucifixes, rosary centers and religious medals cast from antiques in sterling and bronze along with hard to find antique beads (or those inspired by them) do make the difference. But most of all, it is in the way a designer chooses to put it all together. These old rosaries and chaplets from the 156 – 19c speak to the heart in a special way, regardless if they were put together by an artist or by a guild – or simply by someone who took what they had and strung it into a prayer chain. But the results are so beautiful that they are now resting in museums all over Europe
