Madonna & Child Pocket Rosary Prayer Beads
I've made this little rosary - often called a pocket rosary because of its smaller size - featuring a full-color center medal of the Madonna and the child Jesus. This little set of Catholic prayer beads has one decade of the full-size rosary, so if you want to use it to pray the full rosary you can go around the beads 5 or 6 times.
I've used royal blue 8mm round howlite stone beads for the 10 Hail Mary beads in the loop, which meets at the medal of the Madonna and Child. In the front chain, the 2 Our Father beads are 10mm black onyx, and the 3 beads between them are faceted lampwork glass.
The little rosary begins and ends with a silver-plated pewter crucifix that has a royal blue enamel background. Blue is often called "Mary's color".
Length: 24.5cm / 9.75 inches
Crucifix: 3.75cm / 1.5 inches
This pocket rosary is well-made for regular personal use - and would be a thoughtful gift, particularly for any mother or grandmother. It come attractively wrapped.
