St Peter & St Paul Chaplet Rosary
This small and portable chaplet rosary is in honor of two of the greatest saints, Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles of Jesus. Also known as a pocket rosary because of its small size, this set of rosary prayer beads features a medal showing Saint Peter on one side and Saint Paul on the other.
I've used natural black agate gemstone beads for the rosary, an attractive glossy black stone that has bands and layers of grey, brown and cream occasionally running through the stone. This hard and durable stone is ideal for prayer beads, and is even mentioned in the Bible. The strength and durability of agate reminds me of the qualities of these two great men.
The 7 prayer beads are 8mm round agate, and the larger beads at each end are flat coin beads, about 14mm long with pretty banding. All the beads are separately linked with silver rosary wire, and I've finished the larger beads with tiny Swarovski® crystals and wire-wrapped them for extra strength where needed most.
At one end of the rosary is a silver pewter Celtic style cross, and at the other is the double-sided medal and St Peter and St Paul. It comes with a card for each saint that has prayers that can be used with this chaplet, based on the prayers used on the Feast day of both saints, June 29th every year.
Length: 28cm / 11 inches

This pocket rosary is suitable for men or women and is well made to last for years of prayer. It comes attractively wrapped along with the prayer card.
