Fruits - variation 5, Folding Cross - Soochow Jade - 33 Bead


The fruit of the Spirit is love..."
— Galatians 5: 22-23

The fantastic Coptic cross of this prayer rope is embellished with four birds — a traditional Ethiopian motif. The upper portion is hinged, so it folds slightly. The cross is solid bronze, hand-cast from a vintage original.

The prayer beads are disks of soochow jade — semi-translucent, speckled, and in a range of lovely subtle earthy colors.

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

Among these are beads of wood, matte glass, and brass. The connecting rings are solid bronze and brass.

This prayer rope is large enough to wear as a necklace.

Crucifix: 2.5"
Prayer beads: about 16mm in diameter
