This distinctive chaplet combines contemporary Czech table-cut glass beads with a vintage cross design and a finger ring that is patterned after ancient Celtic ring money. Both the cross and ring have been hand-cast in bronze. The 11 bead design make this chaplet perfect for use as a single decade rosary, with 10 beads for "Hail Mary's" and one bead for "Our Father." The chaplet is strung with a high quality 49 strand, nylon coated beading wire and double crimped for extra strength.
Close your eyes and feel the delicate smoothness of the "Nun's Cross." It feels well-worn by the energy of thousands of prayers that are part of the cross's history. Look closely and you can see the faint etchings of a heart, a name and the date 1853.
Ancient Celtic ring money was used for trade in the pre Christian era (800 BC on). These rings are found all over Europe where the Celts moved and settled. Originally the Celts would cast these rings in gold, sliver and bronze.
The color black is often thought of as the color of mystery. It provides a sense of potential and possibilities. It is seen as a restful emptiness from which anything may emerge, and then disappear into, once again.
