Anglican Prayer Beads, White Pearl Christian Rosary
This is a lovely woman's rosary, well made for regular use. It would make a thoughtful gift for a christening, confirmation or wedding. They can be used in the photos of the special moments in the service - they look beautiful draped through the Bride's bouquet.
These handmade Anglican prayer beads (also known as Christian rosary beads) are made by me, Deborah, using 8mm & 10mm round Swarovski® white pearls - the best crystal pearls on the market today.
The Celtic cross in this rosary is beautifully detailed, with the same pattern on both sides. The symbolism on the endless knot pattern on the cross is said to show how our physical and spiritual paths are intertwined.
The Anglican rosary is made up of 33 beads representing the years of Christ's life on earth, divided into 4 groups of 7 called "weeks". Between each week is a single bead called a cruciform bead. The 33rd bead is the invitatory bead, a place to begin the prayer time. The cross completes the set.
Length: approx 28cm / 11 inches from center back to end of the cross.
Cross: 2.5cm x 2.25cm / 1 x 0.9 inches.
The rosary comes in a handmade (by me) lined cotton pouch to keep it in, along with a pamphlet explaining a bit about the layout of the beads and some suggestions on how to use them.
NOTE: This rosary is not long enough to slip over the head. If you wish it to be worn as a necklace, please contact me so that we can discuss either adding a clasp to the loop, or lengthening the design.
