JOB’S TEAR SEEDS, WOODEN CROSS + LAVA STONE ROSARY
Humility best describes my feelings as I worked with these blessed seeds - a state of mind that cannot be expressed with mere words, it must be lived. Job’s Tears - Many Western Christians are familiar with the "Job's Tear Rosary." These are rosaries made out of a tear-shaped seed. Eastern Christian tradition tells of the use of this type of seed to make prayer ropes and the one preferred by our beloved Mother Teresa. Legend has it that as the Theotokos (Mother of God) stood weeping at the foot of the cross, a plant bearing tear-shaped seeds sprung up where her tears fell.
