Glass, Bone and Bronze
10-Bead Handmade Chaplet


“For she is an aura of the might of God
and a pure effusion of the glory of the Almighty…

And she, who is one, can do all things,
and renews everything while herself perduring;
And passing into holy souls from age to age,
she produces friends of God and prophets…”

-- Wisdom 7: 25-27

The lovely crucifix of this chaplet is embellished with fleurs de lis, symbolic of the Blessed Mother, of Christ's human nature, and of the Holy Trinity.  On the reverse is a circular emblem with the words, "Ste. Christo."  The crucifix is hand-cast from a European antique, in solid bronze.  (Please see detail photos, below.) 

The Pater bead is carved bone, set between hand-cast caps of solid bronze and disks of brass.  The luminous Aves are ribbed Czech glass, among tiny glass beads in a wonderful variety of colors.

The chaplet 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.
