Saint Benedict Prayer Bracelet
This prayer bracelet features Saint Benedict in a layout of natural gemstone jasper beads. This stretch bracelet is a chaplet for the wrist, based on the design of the Anglican or Christian rosary. It comes with a pamphlet of the Saint Benedict chaplet prayers.
I've used 8mm round red creek jasper, mined in Australia, for the 3 groups of 3 prayer beads, separated with little Czech glass, brass and gemstone beads. At the front is a bronze medal of St Benedict and a simple brass cross.
The bracelet is made on Powercord, an inert, fray resistant stretch polymer cord that returns to its original shape after stretching and is very strong.
The pictured bracelet is the right size for a wrist measuring around 18cm. I can make this design in larger and smaller sizes, which may affect the number of small beads used, but the 3 groups of prayer beads remain unchanged regardless of size.
Here is a general guide to sizing:
Women - Small: 16cm (6"), Medium: 17cm (6.5"), Large: 18cm (7.0"), X-tra Large: 19cm (7.5")
Men - Small: 18cm (7.0"); Medium: 19cm (7.5"), Large: 20cm (8"), X-tra Large: 21.5cm (8.5")
Measure your wrist and order that size if you want it to sit firmly on your wrist, or the next size up for a looser fit. You can choose the size bracelet you want from the drop down menu at checkout.
The bracelet comes with a small information card about the stones used, and will be attractively wrapped.
