Saint Paul the Apostle, Christian Saint Prayer Beads
A chaplet is a small rosary, and this chaplet of Saint Paul is based on the layout of the Christian rosary. Using chaplet prayer beads can be a great way to add an extra layer to your prayer life.
This Chaplet of St Paul comes with a card of prayers based on Psalm 23 and Matthew 16:13-19 that can be prayed with this rosary, or you can of course substitute other prayers of your choosing.
The chaplet is made in a straight line starting with a pewter "5 star" cross, and at the other end is a medal of St Paul. There are 5 stars in this cross, each with 5 points. Like the 4-pointed star, the 5-pointed star symbol in Christianity is also known as the Star of Bethlehem and represents Jesus' birth and incarnation. Also known as the Epiphany Star, it is used frequently for church decoration during both the Advent and Christmas seasons.
I've used natural jasper gemstone beads for the 7 week beads, and two larger rhyolite beads for the cruciform and invitatory beads at the front. All the beads are hand-linked with silver rosary wire. The two larger beads are finished with tiny Swarovski crystals, and they are wire-wrapped as well.
Length: 29cm / 11.4 inches
Cross: 2.2cm / 0.9 inches
Medal: 2.5cm tall / 1 inch
Beads: 10mm rondelles, 12mm rounds.
An attractive chaplet rosary that is well-made for years of prayer. It comes nicely wrapped along with the prayer card.
