Catholic Prayer Bracelet - 3 Hail Marys Rosary Chaplet Bracelet
A Catholic bracelet is a lovely way to share and remember your faith in an often busy daily life. This bracelet features faith-related charms as well as doubling as a chaplet wrist rosary. It is stretchy for easy on-off wear and is lovely as an everyday fashion accessory - and would also make a thoughtful gift.
I've used 8mm round amethyst gemstone beads and natural paua shell heart beads, together with antiqued brass charms and a center ring stamped with the words Faith, Hope and Love. The charms are a small brass cross with a Swarovski crystal center, an open heart, and a wee angel's wing.
The amethyst prayer beads are laid out in 3 groups of 3 beads, separated with tiny brass and glass spacer beads. This layout of beads is the same as the Chaplet of Three Hail Marys, so you can use this as a prayer bracelet if you choose. Three Hail Marys is a traditional Catholic devotional practice of reciting three Hail Marys as a petition for purity and other virtues.
The pictured bracelet is an X-large size, for a wrist measuring around 19cm. Larger and smaller bracelet sizes may have a different arrangement of the wee spacer beads to allow for the different sizing, but the overall look will be just as nice.
Here is a general guide to sizing:
Women - Small: 16cm (6"), Medium: 17cm (6.5"), Large: 18cm (7.0"), X-tra Large: 19cm (7.5")
Measure your wrist and order that size if you want it to sit firmly on your wrist, or the next size up for a looser fit. You can choose the size you want from the drop-down menu at checkout.
The bracelet comes attractively wrapped along with a card of the traditional 3 Hail Mary chaplet prayers.
