Description

Through darkness, a light will always shine out, no matter the multitude of trials. Remain steadfast in the Lord.

The dark hail Mary beads are spotted and veined with dark reds, greens, and yellows. I imagine that if a light started glowing from the center of them, turning the black into white, they would look much like the Our Father beads – bright, vibrant reds and yellows blossoming out creating undulating layers.

Life on earth is much like these dark beads. The way ahead is not clear, evil seems to be winning. But we only have to remember the Resurrection – and that it only happened after the Crucifixion – to know that Jesus has already overcome all evil and even death. We need not fear.

The battle is already won. Good will prevail. We only have to remain steadfast and hope in the Lord.

Two other sacramentals that help us in this journey are the Miraculous Medal and the St. Benedict medal, both of which are included in this rosary in the centerpiece and crucifix. The Miraculous Medal got it’s name because so many miracles were reported from people who wore it or kept it close that they renamed it. Originally it was called Our Lady of Grace because of the rays of graces streaming from Mary’s fingers in the medal. The St. Benedict medal is known to be a protection against demons, having the initials for the phrase “Begone Satan, what you offer me is evil, drink the poison yourself” in Latin around the outside.

At 17 inches long, with 8mm beads, this rosary is roughly the same size as your standard rosary. The rosary is assembled with 49-strand steel beading wire, crimping beads, and wire protectors. While I do strength test every rosary, it is still a handmade piece and prone to human error. So, should it break, simply gather all the beads you can find and contact me and I’ll gladly repair it for you for free sans shipping and the replacement of major beads (if you loose the spacers, don’t even worry about it).

The beads are stone and have a weight to them, which I always find helps me really focus when I’m praying. They also take on the ambient temperature of the room- so in winter I usually find my rosary to be a little chilly- just another reminder that you’re praying! But they also quickly warm up from your body heat.

The beading wire stretches slightly as it is used (this is normal – it wears in like good leather boots) so you will still be able to slide the beads along as you pray.

__________________

With a little bit of practice, you can easily undo/redo the clasp on this rosary bracelet so you can pray it anywhere. The short strand of beads makes it perfect for holding it in the palm of your hand and keeps it from getting caught on anything.

On the bracelet you have the Benedictine Crucifix (protection against demons and temptation in general) and the Miraculous Medal (Mary asked that all wear it).

Stylish, practical, and comfortable, this rosary bracelet has been my go-to rosary for months.

Bracelet measurements – I found the best way to measure my wrist size is to use my phone charger cable because it simulates the thickness of the beads when on the wrist. Wrap the cord around your wrist and make it a comfortable size. Mark (pencil/pen/sharpie) the cord, then measure it flat.

Choose the bracelet size closest to your measurement, rounding down as the beading wire will relax and get larger with constant wear, especially with showering.

7″ – average women’s size. The size in the photos. Fits snugly but not tight.

7.5″ – loose fit on an average wrist size.

8″ – snug fit on a larger wrist

8.5″ – loose fit on a larger wrist

Feel free to ask for a specific size if these don’t work! Extra beads are added between the crucifix and clasp and are adjusted to order.

I will gladly accept returns/exchanges especially since this is a new item and with Christmas gifts you are buying for someone else! Contact me by within 30 days after delivery.

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
