Light in Darkness - Onyx and Silvered Ceramic

Light in Darkness - Onyx and Silvered Ceramic


"And the light shineth in darkness;
and the darkness comprehended it not."
— John 1:5

The gorgeous Coptic crucifix of this chaplet is highly textured, front and back. It’s solid bronze, cast from a 19c antique.

The large Pater is a vintage bead — we’re not sure of it’s composition but we think it’s silvered Greek ceramic. The Pater is set between cylindrical beads of ebony, and disks and bicones of solid brass.

The Aves are matte black onyx, separated by small beads of brown and olive glass.

Crucifix: 1.5”
Pater: about 18mm
Aves: 8mm
Length: 8.5”
