Small Things
variation ii
Bone, Horn and Bronze
10-Bead Handmade Chaplet

"We can do no great things, only small things with great love."
    -- Mother Theresa of Calcutta, Nobel Lecture Speech, Oslo Norway, 12/11/79

Mother Theresa took her name, and her inspiration, from St. Therese of Lisieux -- the "Little Flower of Jesus."

The Three Birds cross of this chaplet is hand-cast of solid bronze from a vintage Armenian original. It has a very nice weight and three-dimensionality.  (Please see detail photos, below.)

The ten beautiful brown Ave beads are simple flowers, carved of bone. Among these are small beads of matte glass in olives, purples and blue-grays. 

At each end of the strand are elongated beads of burnt horn, and beads of solid brass.  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;  each end is double-crimped for security. 

Cross: 2.6"
Ave beads: about 10mm
Length: 7.6"
