Matte Jasper, Vintage Carved Nut
Handmade 10 Bead Chaplet

"Who is the third who walks always beside you?"

    -- T. S. Eliot, "The Waste Land," (1922)

"Behold, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age."

     -- Matthew 28:20

A chaplet for the journey.

The openwork cross of this chaplet is hand-cast of solid bronze from a 19th century Ethiopian antique. 

The old Pater bead is a vintage, hand-carved fruit pit.  It's set between deep red rondelles of Jasper, and disks of pale coco wood.

The ten stone Ave beads are Picture Jasper, in naturally varied shades of sandy brown, with a matte surface.  Among these are beads of matte glass, in mauves and blue-grays.

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;  each end is double-crimped for security.  The connecting rings are heavy solid brass and bronze.

Cross: 1.75"
Ave beads: 8mm
Pater bead: 14mm
Length: 6.3"
