Divine Mercy & Sacred Heart Pocket Rosary
This single-decade pocket rosary features a center medal of the Sacred Heart of Jesus wrapped in thorns, with a small image of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the back.
A small rosary with one decade of Hail Mary beads is often called a "pocket rosary" as their smaller size makes them easy to carry with you in a pocket or purse. Sometimes they are called chaplets, or decima (one decade) rosaries too.
I've made this one with a single decade of Hail Mary beads in a loop which meets at the Sacred Heart medal, and a full front extension. The Hail Mary beads are 8mm round white howlite stone, and the two Our Father beads are faceted red crystal drops. The crucifix has a lily and vine motif and a plain back.
The beads are all linked by hand, and I've wire-wrapped the Our Father beads for extra strength where needed. This rosary is well-made for years of prayer and is suitable for rugged hands.

This small rosary is ideal for personal use, and would also make a thoughtful gift for another. It comes attractively packaged.
