10-Bead Handmade Chaplet

All Weather, variation ii, Chaplet - Picasso Stone, Vintage Bone, Bronze - 10-Bead - Handmade by Still Stone and Moss, Prayer Bead Art

"Praised be my Lord for our Brother Wind, and for air and cloud, calms and all weather..."
    -- Saint Francis of Assisi, from "The Canticle of Brother Sun"

The San Damiano crucifix of this chaplet is solid bronze, handcast from a vintage Italian original.  Saint Francis of Assisi meditated upon a crucifix of this style.  On the reverse of the crucifix, in Latin, are the words of the blessing Saint Francis gave to Friar Leo (from Numbers 6: 24-26), along with the Tau cross -- the cross Saint Francis used as a signature.  The crucifix is marked "Assisi."

The Ave beads are matte Picasso stone in many shades of gray, separated by beads of matte glass.

The Pater bead is beautiful, smooth, polished bone, in combination with beads of red and golden horn.

The connecting rings are solid 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. 

Crucifix: 1.6"
Pater bead: 16mm
