St Joseph Chaplet - Patron Saint of Fathers, Cabinetmakers, Real Estate Sales & A Happy & Holy Death
The traditional colors of Saint Joseph are interpreted in this chaplet with pure white Czech glass beads for his purity, and amethyst purple beads representing his saintly piety. St Joseph, the husband of the Virgin Mary, is the model for men to follow as fathers.
He is also the patron of cabinetmakers and craftspeople, a happy and holy death, the selling and buying of homes, expectant mothers and immigrants.
I've used 8mm round beads which are a nice size for handling, but still a compact wee rosary. The beads are all hand-linked with silver rosary wire and finished with antique silver accents and tiny purple glass seed beads. The single Our Father bead in the front is 10mm round and held between ornate silver pewter caps.
The chaplet begins and ends with a medal of Saint Joseph holding the child Jesus, with the words "Pray For Us" on the reverse. A tiny crucifix accompanies the medal.
Length: 25cm / 9.8"
Medal: 2.5cm / 1"
This well made chaplet is ideal for regular personal use, or would make a thoughtful gift. It comes attractively packaged with a card with the traditional prayers for this devotion.
