Prayer Beads, Anglican Rosary, Blue Crystal & Gold
Christian prayer beads, also known as the Protestant or Anglican rosary, handmade by me here in New Zealand.
I've used faceted crystal beads in a vibrant blue for the week beads, and fluted gold pewter beads finished with tiny Swarovski crystals for the cruciform and invitatory beads. The crystal beads are 8mm across, and the lovely floral cross is 2.5cm (1 inch) tall.
The layout of the rosary has 33 beads in total, based on the 33 years of Christ's life. They are designed to be held in the hands as an aid to prayerful meditation, to help still the mind to allow a smoother transition into the presence of God.
They come with an information pamphlet containing suggested ways of using them and the traditional prayers. Over time, many develop their own prayers for use with their rosary.
Length from mid-back to end of cross: 27cm (10.5 inches)
Cross: 2.5cm (1 inch)
Please note that this rosary is not large enough to slip over the head. If you wish to wear it as a rosary necklace, please contact me before purchase so we can discuss alterations to the design to allow it to be worn.
The rosary comes in a handmade cotton rosary pouch to keep it in, along with the pamphlet.
