”God is encountered, walking along the path.
…God is always a surprise…
you never know where and how you will find him.”

— Pope Francis, 8/2013


The Coptic cross of this chaplet is simplicity itself. It’s hand-cast from an antique original in solid bronze.

The Pater is composed of two feldspar leaf beads arranged end to end. These are really lovely beads — and they’re highly dimensional, so they have movement — they tip and turn relative to one another in such a beautiful way. We were only able to get one palmful of them — enough for just one rosary and two chaplets.

Around the Pater are beads of solid brass, rosy in tone.

The Aves are jasper in wonderfully various grays, blues, ochres and taupe.

The Aves are separated by matte glass beads in muted tones of soft bronzy olives and tan.

Please see the additional photos, below — they were all taken outdoors, at different times of day.

The connecting rings are all solid bronze. At the ends of the strands are disks of solid brass and elongated beads of solid rosy brass. The crimps are copper.

The chaplet is strung on premium quality Soft Flex jewelers’ cable, composed of 49 strands of steel encased in nylon, with a test strength of 26 pounds. Each end is double-crimped for security.
