St Agatha Chaplet Bracelet, Patron Saint of Breast Cancer Sufferers - Stretch Bracelet
This stretch chaplet bracelet is designed as a small chaplet of Saint Agatha that you can carry with you by wearing on your wrist. The beads are laid out in the traditional pattern for a "niner" rosary. The bracelet features a medal of Saint Agatha, the patron saint of breast cancers sufferers, and a small crucifix.
The 8mm round pink jade prayer beads are laid out in 3 groups of 3 beads, separated with faceted crystal beads and tiny pink Swarovski crystals. This layout of beads is the same as a "niner" chaplet for saints, so you can use this as a prayer bracelet if you choose. A card with the traditional prayers is included.
At the front of the bracelet is the medal of St Agatha and crucifix, between pink jade and green aventurine beads, and wee silver-plated beads finish the design. The bracelet is made on stretchy Powercord for easy on-off wear. A lovely way to remember St Agatha and a call to prayer, which is also a fashionable jewelry accessory.
Saint Agatha of Sicily is one of the most highly venerated virgin martyrs of Christian antiquity. Agatha was born at Catania, Sicily, and she was martyred around the year 251, put to death for her steadfast profession of faith. She is one of only seven women, excluding the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is commemorated by name in the Canon of the Mass.
The pictured bracelet is made for a wrist measuring around 18cm. 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"), 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.
You can personalise this bracelet with the addition of silver-plated letter charms. See this listing for details (extra costs involved).
The bracelet comes attractively wrapped along with a prayer card. You can see more chaplet bracelets in my Catholic Bracelet Collection.
