The idea to make this rosary came to me when I read about Mother Teresa and her missions. Her missions always contained I crucifix with the text "I Thirst'' written underneath. The big beads and the cross are made of brass, while the decade beads are made of brown wood. "I Thirst'' is stamped on a metal piece. Let me know if you want your name etched at the back and I'd be happy to do it at no additional cost. Please provide an allowance of 3 to 5 days for shipping.
