Christian Prayer Beads, Paua Shell, Pearls, Personalized Birthstone Charm, Faith Hope & Love
This unique Anglican pocket rosary is made with natural New Zealand paua shell beads & freshwater pearls. The vibrant colors in paua shell are only found in the cold Southern waters of New Zealand which cause this variety of abalone to create beautifully iridescent shells.
This little set of prayer beads can be personalized with a Swarovski crystal charm in a color meaningful to you - perhaps a birthstone color or a favorite color. You can choose from the color chart in the pictures.
The Anglican pocket rosary is a short form of the full Christian rosary, with a loop of 7 prayer beads and two front beads. Often called a pocket rosary because of its smaller size, its purpose is to enrich prayer life through shorter prayer times, or by using them when praying on particular subjects. The prayer stills the mind and the beads occupy and quieten the body. A pamphlet about the Anglican rosary comes with this set of Christian prayer beads, which has some suggested ways to start using them.
The 7 beads in the loop are 12mm double-sided paua (abalone) coins with wee freshwater pearls separating them. The loop meets at a silver pewter ring stamped with the words Faith Hope and Love. The Swarovski crystal charm hangs from the ring. The front drop of the set has an ornate filigree cross, followed by a 15mm paua heart Invitatory bead, and a 12mm heart cruciform bead.
Length: 23cm / 9.25 inches:
Cross: 2cm tall / 0.8 inch.
Well made for years of regular use, this little rosary comes attractively packaged along with the pamphlet.
