Brigid by the Oak - variation 1 - Nephrite and Wood


Saint Brigid founded the renowned Abbey of Kildare — the Church of the Oak — in County Kildare, Ireland, in the 5th century. "The very oak tree under which she delighted to pray has given a name to the place."
— John Watkinson

In Saint Brigid's honor, the Pater bead of this chaplet resembles an acorn. The bead is burnt horn, in variegated browns, and the cap is antiqued brass.

The stone Aves are speckly green nephrite, separated by beads of wood and matte glass.
