Sacred Heart - Holy Family Chaplet Rosary
A chaplet is a small rosary, usually dedicated to a special saint or a prayerful purpose. This little rosary is the Sacred Heart - Holy Family Chaplet.
I've used glossy black onyx gemstone beads in a flattened cushion shape for this chaplet, teamed with gunmetal grey studded nuggets beads and tiny spacer beads. The center medal and crucifix are both cast in nickle & lead-free pewter and then given a gunmetal grey finish.
There are 3 sets of 3 prayer beads in the loop which meets at a center medal of the Sacred Heart of Jesus with the Holy Family on the other side. The front drop has a single bead right before the radiant-style crucifix which has a radiant sun burst behind the figure of Christ and lily-pointed arms. The three points of the lily on the arms of a cross represent the Holy Trinity - God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Length from mid-back to end of crucifix: 23cm / 9.2 inches
Center medal: 2cm / 0.8 inch
Crucifix: 5cm / 2 inches
Beads: 10mm black onyx rondelles.
The chaplet loop is made on super-flexible rosary wire and the ends are properly finished with wire guardians so there is no exposed wire, and the front bead is wire-wrapped for extra strength - well-made for rugged hands.
A pamphlet with the traditional prayers comes with the chaplet, which will be attractively packaged.
