I think my most favorite kind of rosary to make is a pocket rosary or chaplet. They are small enough to tuck into your purse or pocket, and they serve the same purpose as a full sized rosary. They are also more affordable and a bit quicker to make up.chaplet is a custom order i made for my friend. It is made of poppy jasper and bronze.
My friend found this medal in her drawer and wanted it incorporated into her chaplet so i used it in place of a cross or crucifix.
I've also been working on my wire wrapping skills and am getting faster at it. I really like making rosaries this way as they are pretty indestructable with this style of wire wrap.
i hope she likes it...
I love St Nicholas! So i have been searching for a medal or connector piece with him featured on it. I was so happy when i found this medal.
i think it looks very old world and beautiful
I was told the words on the back of the medal say "St Nicholas, Wonder Worker"
I paired the medal up with this ornate cross and these beautiful cobalt blue glass beads
And i made another Little Chaplet of the Three Hail Marys
This time i made it in bronze and wire wrapped it. The lamp work beads are ones i bought years ago and have had in my bead collection. I thought they would make a nice little rosary
I love making these little chaplets and rosaries...For me it is like taking a prayer and making it into something solid and beautiful...
