Christian Chaplet Prayer Bracelet - St Benedict Medal & Talavera Cross
A chaplet prayer bracelet is a mini rosary for your wrist, and is a great way to carry a small set of prayer beads with you for those quiet moments in your day. The design of the bracelet is one-quarter of the full Anglican or Christian rosary.
I've made this bracelet with 8mm round black hematite beads for the 7 week beads, and 10mm hematite ovals for the two beginning beads. The beads are all hand-linked with gold rosary so the bracelet drapes nicely on your wrist. The two oval beads are finished with little Swarovski® crystals, and the design is completed with 2 more Swarovski® crystal before the clasp.
Between the week beads and the introductory bead hangs a gold=plated medal of Saint Benedict which shows him on one side and his ward (prayer of protection) on the other. The medal is accompanied by a bronze Talavera cross - a folk art style of floral design, raised on the front and engraved on the back.
The medal is full-size at 2cm (0.8 inch) across, and the cross is 2.5cm (1 inch) tall. There are other bracelets in my shop which have smaller medals / crosses, which you can see here: https://www.etsy.com/nz/shop/onedaysgracenz?section_id=7832993
Length of pictured bracelet: 19cm (7.5 inches) which is the right size for a wrist measuring around16.5cm (6.5 inches).
• Bracelet length and wrist size are not the same thing. • To find what bracelet length is best for you, measure your wrist just above the wristbone where you wear a watch, then ADD another 2.5cm (1 inch) to that measurement. That is the length bracelet you need.
"Average" bracelet Lengths:
small - 18cm / 7"
medium - 19cm / 7.5"

X-lge - 21.5cm / 8.5"
Choose the length you would like from the drop-down menu at checkout. You can also choose to have a short gold-plated extension/growth chain added at the clasp for no extra cost.
The bracelet comes with a card explaining a bit about chaplet bracelets, and the prayers for the St Benedict chaplet are included. It will be attractively wrapped.
