Anglican / Protestant Prayer Beads, Christian Rosary, Black & Silver
Anglican rosary beads (also known as the Protestant or Christian rosary) made with glossy black hematite beads accented with Swarovski crystals.
A lovely Christian rosary for men or women that is well-made for years of prayer. The Anglican rosary is based on Christ's life - 33 beads, one for each year of his life. The beads are set out in groups of 7 week beads, separated with larger cruciform and invitatory beads. A pamphlet about the rosary is included.
The week beads are 7mm round hematite, with 10mm oval cruciform and invitatory beads. All the beads are hand-linked with silver rosary wire and I've finished the larger beads with Swarovski crystals and wire-wrapping to give extra strength where needed most - and to give that unique handmade look to the rosary.
The rosary begins and ends with a pewter Byzantine style budded cross, which has 3 "buds" at the end of each arm. The buds have two meanings - the most common being that they represent the Holy Trinity of God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. They are also a representation of the 12 Apostles who went out from the cross to carry the Good News to the world. The pewter used in the cross is culinary grade so it is completely safe to handle (made in the US).
Length from mid-back to end of cross: 44cm / 17.5 inches;
Cross: 2.5cm / 1 inch.
This rosary comes in a handmade (by me) lined cotton rosary pouch to store it in, and will be attractively packaged.
