Saint Brigid's Fire
Bronze, Brass and Greek Leather
Handmade Irish Penal Chaplet

St. Brigid's Fire, chaplet, Still Stone and Moss, Prayer Bead Art, full view


This chaplet commemorates the fire Saint Brigid kept alight in the monastery of Kildare, tended over the centuries by the Sisters of St. Brigid, and burning today at Solas Bhríde under the care of the Brigidine nuns.

The cross of this chaplet is embellished with shamrocks.  The Pater bead is vintage Murano millefiore glass, in the exuberant colors and patterns for which Murano glass is so well known, and the Aves are smooth bone.  Throughout the strand are beads of red glass -- antique Venetian white hearts -- for the flame.

Adoration
Rare Murano Glass, Brass and Bronze
10-Bead Handmade Chaplet

Adoration, chaplet handmade of Murano glass and bronze, full view, Still Stone and Moss, Prayer Bead Art


This charming chaplet is made with very rare, cobalt-blue Murano glass beads.  

The pattern of the beads calls to mind the Holy Eucharist within a monstrance!  On each bead, a central white dot is surrounded by a fine pattern of red, and radiant flares of white. The pattern runs entirely through the beads.

The botonée cross of the chaplet is highly textured with raised knobs.   It's solid bronze, cast by hand from a 19th century Coptic antique.
