St Jude Bracelet, Nephrite Jade (Greenstone) Beads, Catholic Saint Bracelet
Gorgeous faceted greenstone (nephrite jade) beads make up this Saint Jude Thaddeus bracelet, which is stretchy for easy on-off wear. St Jude is the patron saint of hopeless cases and desperate causes.
I've used 8mm round faceted greenstone beads for the bracelet, with a single red trade bead bead at the front where the wee color medal of Saint Jude hangs. Little silver-plated beads complete the design.
Saint Jude Thaddeus is thought by many scholars to have been one of Christ's apostles. He traveled to Mesopotamia where he joined with Saint Simon in Persia - but they were martyred together in Persia. According to tradition, after his martyrdom, pilgrims came to his grave to pray and many of them experienced the powerful intercessions of St Jude and so he was given the title 'The Saint for the Hopeless and the Despaired'.
The bracelet in the photos is the right size for a wrist measuring around 19cm / 7.5 inches.
To choose the right size, measure your wrist and order that size if you want the bracelet to be a snug fit on your wrist, or order the next size up if you prefer a loose fit.
Select the size you want from the drop-down menu before checkout.
The bracelet comes attractively wrapped with a card about Saint Jude.
