"The fruit of the Spirit is love..."

  -- Galatians 5: 22-23

The 33 stone prayer beads are of this prayer rope are disks of jade -- semi-translucent, speckled, and striped.  Their colors remind us of melons and other wonderful fruits.  Among these are beads of wood, matte glass, and brass.

The cross is decorated with four small birds, and a knotwork pattern.  It's hinged, and so flexes slightly.  The cross is solid bronze, cast from an old Coptic original.

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 crimp beads are copper;  the connecting rings are bronze.

The number of the prayer beads -- 33 -- refers to the number of years of Jesus' life, and is symbolic of the Incarnation.

The prayer rope is easily large enough to wear as a necklace.
