Druzy Quartz
10-Bead Handmade Chaplet

Druzy Quartz Chaplet - Handmade by Still Stone and Moss, Prayer Bead Art, preview


"There is a crack in everything --
That's how the light get's in."

  -- Leonard Cohen

The crucifix  of this chaplet is designed with the full aureole -- the radiance surrounding the entire figure of Jesus.

The prayer beads are druzy quartz.  Several of the beads have cracks or openings revealing crystals in the interior of the rock.  

Druzy quartz formed when the original stone cracked, allowing other elements to enter and form crystals in the interior -- so the stone can symbolize the idea that our own cracks and breakages may open the way for unplanned, unexpected beauty.  

The druzy prayer beads, and the hematite spacer beads between them, are all titanium-coated, which gives them their highly unusual colors.  

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 end beads are brass;  the connecting rings are bronze.

Crucifix:  1.75"
Pater: about 10mm
Aves:  about 8mm 
Length: 6.5" from top of loop to bottom of crucifix
