Beads of Saint Ann, Blue Gemstone Chaplet Rosary
The Beads of Saint Ann chaplet is a popular traditional chaplet honoring St Ann (Anne) the mother of the Virgin Mary. A lovely chaplet for mothers, grandmothers and expectant mothers.
St Ann has many other patronages as well as motherhood, including equestrians, lace makers, those in poverty and lost articles.
The Ave beads are blue angelite, a natural blue gemstone that is also known as "angelstone". The larger beads are pretty Czech glass, finished with wee Swarovski crystals and wire-wrapping.
This small chaplet has 18 beads in total, along with a medal of Saint Ann. Ann was the mother of the Virgin Mary and so was her first teacher - in this medal she is shown with Mary at her side.
The beads are laid out in 3 groups of 5 Hail Mary beads, with one set honoring each of Jesus, Mary and Anne. The Our Father beads are placed between the 3 sets of Hail Marys in the loop, and the 18th bead is the Our Father in the front chain, and a dove-grey enamel crucifix finishes the rosary.
Length from center back to end of crucifix: 27cm / 10.75 inches
Crucifix: 3.75cm / 1.5 inches tall.
This handmade chaplet rosary is lovely for personal use or for gifting. It comes with a card of the traditional prayers and will be attractively packaged.
