10-Bead Handmade Chaplet

Pocket Chaplet, bronze San Damiano crucifix, preview, Still Stone and Moss, Prayer Bead Art

"May the Lord bless thee and keep thee; 
may He show His face to thee and be merciful to thee.  
May He turn His countenance to thee and give thee peace."     

--Numbers 6: 24-26;  the blessing given Friar Leo by Saint Francis of Assisi

An ideal little pocket chaplet.

The San Damiano crucifix is solid bronze, handcast from a vintage Italian original.  Saint Francis of Assisi meditated upon a crucifix of this style.   On the reverse of the crucifix, in Latin, are the words of the blessing Saint Francis gave to Friar Leo (from Numbers 6: 24-26), along with the Tau cross -- the cross Saint Francis used as a signature.  The crucifix is marked "Assisi." 

The ten prayer beads are handcarved Burnt Horn, in beautifully varied shades of warm brown.  They're shaped somewhat like soft-edged cubes.  Among these are beads of solid brass, and matte glass. 

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, with a test-strength of 26 pounds;  each end is double-crimped for security.
