Feast Day
Horn, Glass and Ceramic
10-Bead Handmade Chaplet

Every day of the year is somebody's Feast Day -- an occasion for celebrating the life of one of us. Flag-bright, festive colors run throughout this chaplet.  The extra bead alongside the crucifix is something like a party -- not strictly necessary -- but not pointless either!

The fantastic evocative crucifix is solid bronze.  It's handcast from a very worn, ancient original, believed to be Spanish, from the 15-1800s.

The earthy-brown Pater bead is burnt horn, between beads of solid brass and intensely colorful Greek ceramic.  These ceramic beads are high-fired and durable.

The Aves are matte black Czech glass, interspersed with more of those vivid Greek beads, and with beads of tan matte glass.

The extra beads attached near the crucifix are Greek ceramic, Czech glass, and solid brass, wirewrapped with bronze.

The chaplet is strung on premium quality Soft Flex jewelers' cable, composed of 49 strands of steel encased in nylon, with a test strength of 26 pounds;  each end is double-crimped for security.  The connecting rings are heavy-gauge copper and bronze.
