Fishers - Bloodstone variation - 50 Bead

Fishers - Bloodstone variation - 50 Bead


"...And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."
— Matthew 4:19

The 50 beads of this prayer rope are separated into decades, so it can easily be used to count rosary prayers.  It's large enough to fit over an average-size person's head, and so can be worn as a necklace.

The fish pendant is solid, substantial, hand-cast bronze. To us, it appears to wear a smile. The fish is a familiar and ancient symbol of Christianity, in use in the first century AD: the letters of the Greek word for fish were understood to stand for the initial letters of each word of the sentence, "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior." 

The 50 prayer beads are carved in Israel, of wood pruned from the ancient olive trees in Bethlehem.  The variety and depth of their color and grain is a mark of their quality. No trees were harmed in the harvesting of this wood -- pruning the trees is essential to their health and continued fruitfulness.

The olivewood beads are separated by beads of bloodstone.
