Bone and Bronze
Handmade Chaplet

Rise: 10-Bead Chaplet handmade of Bone and Bronze, by Still Stone and Moss, Prayer Bead Art, preview

“For me it is the virgin birth, the Incarnation, the resurrection which are the true laws of the flesh and the physical. Death, decay, destruction are the suspension of these laws.  I am always astonished at the emphasis the Church puts on the body.  It is not the soul she says that will rise but the body, glorified."

-- Flannery O'Connor, The Habit of Being

The Pater and the Ave beads of this chaplet are carved of bone.  Among these are beads of solid brass and matte glass.

The crucifix is highly dimensional -- the corpus rises from the cross, touching only at the hands and feet.  The crucifix is solid bronze, hand-cast from a vintage original.

The connecting rings are solid bronze and brass.  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.

Pater bead:  about 1" long, 23mm
Ave beads:  about 8mm wide
Crucifix: about 1.75" tall, 45mm
Total length: about 6.25", 16cm

$106. (Sold. For a similar chaplet, please inquire.)
