Christian Prayer Beads, Paua Shell & Pearls, Birthstone Charm
The Anglican pocket rosary is a short form of the full Christian rosary, with one set of 7 prayer beads and two introductory beads. Often called a pocket rosary because of its smaller size, its purpose is to enrich prayer life through shorter prayer times, or by using them when praying on particular subjects. The prayer stills the mind and the beads occupy and quieten the body.
A pamphlet about the Anglican rosary comes with this set of Christian prayer beads, which has some suggested ways to start using them.
This unique Anglican pocket rosary is made with natural paua shell beads and freshwater pearls.It can be personalized for the user by the inclusion of a Swarovski crystal charm in a color of your choice - perhaps a birthstone color or a favorite color. You can choose from the drop-down selection options.
The 7 beads in the loop are 12mm double-sided coins with wee freshwater pearls separating them. The loop meets at a silver pewter ring stamped with the words Faith Hope and Love. The Swarovski crystal charm hangs from the ring.
The front drop of the set has an ornate filigree cross, followed by a 15mm paua heart Invitatory bead, and a 12mm heart cruciform bead.
Length: 23cm / 9.25 inches:
Cross: 2cm tall / 0.8 inch.
The vibrant colors in paua shell are only found in the cold Southern waters of New Zealand which cause this variety of abalone to create beautifully iridescent shells.
Well made for years of regular use, this little rosary comes attractively packaged along with the pamphlet.
