Anglican Rosary, Black Onyx & Silver
Here is a handmade Anglican rosary, also commonly known as a Protestant or Christian rosary, made with black onyx gemstone beads and a silver pewter contemporary cross in a linked, compact design.
I've used 8mm black onyx beads for the loop, and stacks of onyx rondelles & pewter cubes for the invitatory and cruciform beads. The cross is also pewter (nickle & lead free).
The Anglican rosary is made up of thirty-three beads representing the years of Christ's life, divided into four groups of seven 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 and a cross completes the set.
Length: approx 32cm from center back to end of the cross.
Cross: 3cm tall.
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.
This Christian rosary is made with care and joy right here in New Zealand. It is well made to last for years of prayer and is suitable for personal use, or would make a thoughtful gift or addition to a collection.
