Pillar of Cloud
variation II
33-Bead Handmade Prayer Rope
Pyrite and Bronze

Pillar of Cloud, 33 bead prayer rope handmade of pyrite and bronze, preview

"And the Lord went before them by day
in a pillar of cloud
to lead them along the way."
-- Exodus 13:21

Marvelous cross, cast by hand of solid bronze, from an antiquity...

The 33 stone prayer beads are Pyrite -- very weighty, and wonderfully lustrous, but not too shiny -- absolutely beautiful.  (See detail photos below.)   Among these are beads of matte glass, in olives, blue-grays, and browns, and beads of solid brass.

The number of the prayer beads celebrates the incarnation, and refers to the 33 years of Jesus' life.

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

Cross:  1.3" including the looop
Prayer beads:  about 8mm
Length:  10.5"
Weight: 1.7 oz.
