Candlelight - Stone - 33 Bead

Candlelight - Stone - 33 Bead


When we look into the heart,
May our eyes have the kindness
and reverence of candlelight.
— John O'Donohue, "For Light"

The crucifix of this prayer rope is absolutely wonderful. It's cast from a well-worn — clearly well-loved — 18th century Latin American antique, in solid bronze.

The warm colors of the stone prayer beads remind us of candlelight. The beads are semi-translucent, speckled, and shaped something like flattened pears.

Tiny handmade beads of brass separate the prayer beads. At each end of the strand are larger beads of brass.

The number of the prayer beads — 33 — is a celebration of the Incarnation, and is symbolic of the years of Jesus' life.

Crucifix: 2"
Prayer beads: about 14mm wide
Length: about 12.75" from the top of the loop to the bottom of the crucifix
Weight: about 2.1 oz.
