Facing giants? Remember David:

He chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook... And with a sling and a stone, he vanquished the giant Goliath.

— For the full story, see 1 Samuel 17

The five smooth stones of this chaplet were gathered on the shores of the North American Great Lakes. Their shapes and textures are entirely natural.

The cross is simplicity itself. It’s solid bronze, hand-cast from a Coptic antique.

The ten prayer beads are jasper, in various browns, blue-grays, and ochres. Among these are hand-cut beads of solid brass and beads of matte glass.

The cairn of stones is wire-wrapped in solid bronze, with beads of solid brass. The connecting rings are all solid bronze. 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.
