Amethyst Gemstone Rosary ~ Small Pocket Rosary or Car Charm
This lovely pocket Rosary is destined to become a treasured family heirloom.
I have used genuine, hand-carved lilac Amethyst gemstone rondelles for the Mary beads and a beautiful, high quality, Czech glass faceted jet black bead for the Pater, or "Our Father" bead. The centerpiece is a silver plated "Prodigal Son" and the Crucifix is Sterling Silver plated pewter from Italy.
I have strung it in the modern method using 49 strand stainless steel beading wire for extra strength to last the years, yet having the drape and feel of silk thread. The bead caps and findings are all in a gunmetal finish and the separator beads are tiny glass seed beads.
This little Chaplet is a full decade, yet it measures only 6.5 inches (37 cm) from the middle of the decade to the tip of the Crucifix. This tiny rosary would make a great gift for Dad, Grandfather, Godfather or for a young mans First Communion.
It is also small enough to tuck into a pocket or hang from a rear view mirror for prayer while you are traveling.
