Tears of The Virgin Rosary Bracelet
A very special bracelet in honor of Panagia who we honor on August 15th. Made with seeds of a fruit that are cultivated by monks and created into beads to make rosaries...known as “tears of the Virgin”. Tradition states that this fruit plant grew under the cross of Christ from the tears of the Virgin, which fell to the ground. First given to a monk by Virgin Mary herself, the monk struggled with making a rosary. She gave him the seeds which her tears had watered and said “Take my tears, cultivate them and you will make prayer rosaries” With prayer and reflection, the monk accomplished this task as they do to this day.
A rare bead, made into a bracelet by artist Filitsa who is having the bracelets blessed by the priest in the village of Mouzaki, Karditsa.
Macrame adjustable to fit most wrist sizes.
The silk tassel is to be used to wipe the tears, and a beautiful .925 silver pendant of the Virgin Mary completes this piece.
Made in Greece by Filitsa
