The Franciscan Crown or Seraphic Rosary has a unique history and tradition with the Franciscans. It is said that in 1422, a young Novice was presented with this rosary as a way to celebrate the 7 joys of Mary through a vision. It was this Crown that kept him going through the Novitiate and would eventually make this the rosary of the Order of Friars Minor. (Learn how to pray the Franciscan Crown here.)
The 15-decade rosary is traditional to the Order of Preachers. Said to have been given to Saint Dominic by the Blessed Virgin Mary, the full rosary has been a part of the Dominican habit for many years. Even after Pope John Paul II introduced devotion to the Mysteries of Light, many friars and sisters still wear the original 15-decade rosary. As the Franciscan rosary is made with brown beads (in relation to the brown habit), I make the Dominican rosaries with black beads (either wood or onyx/agate) as the Order of Preachers are known as the black friars.
I’ll add more pictures as I upload them.
