33-Bead Handmade Prayer Rope
Amber Czech Glass, Bronze

Sunup, 33 bead prayer rope handmade of bronze and glass, preview

"I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen --  not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."

  -- C. S. Lewis, Weight of Glory

The bright, reflective surface of this cross, and its circle motif, suggest the sun.  The cross is solid bronze, handcast from a 19th century Coptic original.

The deep amber color and translucency of the prayer beads suggest the sun's warmth.  Their color varies with the light.  The beads are Czech glass with an interesting, irregular shape. 

The number of prayer beads -- 33 -- is a celebration of the incarnation, and is symbolic of the years of Jesus' life on earth.

Separating the prayer beads are small beads of matte glass in various shades of tan, and solid brass and copper. 

The connecting rings are solid copper and 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.
