Man or Boy's First Holy Communion Chaplet, Traditional Layout, Jasper Gemstone Beads
This First Holy Communion chaplet has masculine appeal and is well-made for rugged hands. Larger than some of my chaplets, it is made with natural brecciated jasper beads in the traditional layout for this devotion with 5 groups of 4 beads.
The chaplet features a First Holy Communion medal in the center. Shaped like a shield, the front has the Communion Cup & Host, and the reverse is engraved with First holy Communion.
I've used 8mm and 10mm round brecciated jasper, which has a deep mahogany color shot through with lines of black and steel grey. The beads are all handlinked with silver rosary wire, and I've wire-wrapped the larger beads for extra strength where needed. This rosary chaplet is made for many years of prayer.
Length: 29cm (11.5 inches)
Center medal: 2.5cm (1 inch)
Crucifix: 4cm (1.6 inches)
An ideal gift from a godparent or family member, which will be used and treasured for many years to come. It comes attractively packaged along with a card with the traditional prayers.
