"I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, to be with you forever — the Spirit of Truth."

— John 14:16-17

The dangle of this chaplet represents flames, tongues of fire, symbolic of the Holy Spirit, our Counselor. It’s composed of three ribbed beads suspended from a textured ring — all are solid brass.

The Aves are hand-carved wood. We're absurdly fond of these beads — they’re not only beautiful but they also feel remarkably good on the fingertips. Between the prayer beads are beads of solid brass.

The radiant crucifix and the chaplet’s Celtic ring are both cast from an antique originals, in solid bronze.

Chaplets of this configuration are known as Irish Penal Chaplets, or "Little Rosaries." They can easily be used to keep count of the prayers of a full five decade rosary, by looping the ring over one thumb and praying one decade, then moving the ring to each finger in turn, praying one decade at each position.
