Bright Wings
Mother of Pearl and Bronze
10-Bead Handmade Chaplet

Bright Wings Chaplet, bronze Armenian cross, preview, Still Stone and Moss, Prayer Bead Art

"And though the last lights off the black West went
Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastwards, springs --
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings."

-- Gerard Manley Hopkins, "God's Grandeur"     

The large cross of this chaplet is adorned with three birds.  It's cast from a vintage Armenian original, in solid bronze.

The gracefully shaped prayer beads are bright mother-of-pearl.  

Among these are small brass beads, and tiny beads of Czech matte glass in various shades of blue.

The connecting rings are 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.

Cross:  2.6"
Prayer Beads:  about 7/8" long and 1/2" wide
Length:  about 8" from the top of the loop to the bottom of the cross
