Christian Prayer Beads - Anglican Rosary
A handmade Anglican rosary, suitable for men or women, made with iridescent dark blue Swarovski pearls & black onyx beads. A special feature is the Talavera style cross in gold pewter, a style of folk-art celebrating life with symbols of the sun and natural world.
The Anglican Rosary is more than a simple recitation of prayers. The beads offer a focal point to help keep the mind still while praying, so both the body and mind are engaged in prayer.
The layout of the rosary has 4 groups of 7 "week" beads, separated with larger beads called "cruciform beads" because they form the shape of a cross when the rosary is laid out. I've used round deep blue pearls for the weeks & black onyx rondelles stacked with wee brass beads for the cruciform beads.
At the front of the rosary is the double-sided cross, and an invitatory bead above the cross invites you into the circle of prayer.
Length from mid-back to end of cross: 40cm / 15.75 inches;
Cross: 2.5cm tall / 1 inch tall.
Beads: 8mm Swarovski pearls, 10mm black onyx.
A lovely rosary for personal use which would make a thoughtful gift. It comes with a pamphlet about the Christian / Anglican rosary that has some suggested ways to start using it, and will be attractively wrapped.
