St Benedict Prayer Beads, Handmade Jasper Chaplet Rosary
St Benedict chaplet rosary, handmade in New Zealand. This set of prayer beads is made in the traditional layout for Saint Benedict's chaplet with 3 groups of 3 beads.
I've used 10mm round brecciated jasper gemstone beads for the chaplet, a larger bead for those who find a bigger bead preferable. Jasper is a natural stone which is hard and durable and has been used for centuries for prayer beads, weapons and jewelry - it is even mentioned in the Bible. Brecciated jasper has rich mahogany colors shot through with metallic black.
The sets of prayer beads in the loop are separated with tiny glass beads and brass spacers, and the loop meets at a gunmetal black connector and a small brass cross. The chaplet begins and ends with with a brass medal of Saint Benedict with his ward (prayer of protection) on the other side.
Length when hanging: 21.5cm | 8.5 inches
Medal: 2cm | 0.8 inch.
A nice set of prayer beads that feels comfortable in the hands, Great for personal use by anyone with an affinity for this wonderful saint, Benedict.
