Tenner Rosary, Jasper Beads & Brass Pardon Crucifix
A handsome tenner rosary made with natural green brecciated jasper beads,featuring a brass Pardon Crucifix. Smaller rosaries are known as "tenners" if they are made in a straight line, or "pocket rosaries" if they are made in a looped style. This small tenner rosary with brass thumb/finger ring would be a good choice for a Catholic man.
I've used 8mm round greenline jasper beads for the Hail Marys, and a single 10mm round for the Our Father prayer bead. Jasper is a hard and durable natural stone that has been used for centuries for tools, weapons and personal adornment - it is even mentioned in the Bible.
At one end of the tenner is a brass ring which can be used to secure the rosary over a finger or thumb. The other end has a brass Pardon crucifix with good detail and an antiqued finish. The back of this well-known crucifix has the words "Behold this heart which has so loved men. Father forgive them".
Length: 29cm / 11.5 inches
Ring: 2.5cm across / 1 inch across
Crucifix: 5cm tall / 2 inches tall.
Designed and well-made for regular personal use, this wee rosary would also make a thoughtful gift. It comes attractively packaged.
