Christmas Chaplets

I made these little Chaplets for two of my Loved Ones this Christmas. For those who are not familiar with these prayer beads, chaplets are little rosaries specifically dedicated to a favorite Saint or cause.
This one i made for our friend Pat. It is called The Chaplet of Our Lady, The Star of the Sea. The prayer that is said with this Chaplet is said to protect Loved Ones at Sea. Pat's grandson Danny is in the Navy, and is on his way to dangerous waters. I hope when Pat holds this little rosary, she finds peace of mind...

And this one i made for my best friend, my Mother. It is The Chaplet of Saint Patrick. My Mom has always been very connected to her Irish heritage, and has had many hard losses in her close and loving family lately. I hope she likes it.

Ever since i was a child, i have been fascinated with prayers beads of all kinds. It gives me pleasure to make them and give them as special gifts to those i love.
