Brigid by the Oak - variation 3 - Nephrite and Brass


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. Alongside the Pater are cylindrical beads of striped palm.

The lovely crucifix is absolutely covered in leaves and flowers. It's hand-cast from a vintage original, in solid bronze.

The stone Aves are speckly green nephrite, separated by beads of brass.
