Materials

Swarovski cream pearls, Swarovski rose and olivine bicone crystals, brown mookaite jasper rounds, silver plated lobster clasp, extender chain, beading wire, sterling silver crimps, silver filled wire guards, TierraCast daisy spacers and rose charm, St Theresa silver tone medal made in Italy

This pearl and crystal adjustable chaplet bracelet is dedicated to St. Theresa (or Therese) of Lisieux, often referred to as "The Little Flower." It is a niner chaplet, with glossy Swarovski cream pearls (8mm) used for the prayer beads. St. Theresa is usually pictured with a crucifix and armful of roses, as can be seen in the bracelet's Italian-made silver-tone medal and in my photo of the pretty complimentary holy card included with this bracelet. The lovely colors of the holy card guided my choice of the pearls (cream like the saint's cloak) and the other beads for this piece.

There are three trios of pearls in the bracelet, with the front trio ornamented by rose and olivine Swarovski bicone crystals. Little rose crystals (4mm) separate the pearls, and a bead group of a larger rose bicone (6mm) flanked by small olivine crystals (4mm) fills the space between the central pearl trio and side trios. Because St. Theresa emphasized simplicity, I decided to use brown mookaite jasper rounds (4mm) between the side pearl trios, similar to the brown of her robes on the holy card. At each end of the bracelet, is also another small olivine bicone (4mm). Also, each cream pearl is nestled between TierraCast (made in the USA) silver-on-pewter daisy spacers.

The bracelet strand is finished off on either side with sterling silver twist crimps between a split pair of daisy spacers. The crimps hold secure the high-quality 49-strand beading wire used here. There are also silver-filled wire guards at the strand ends, to protect the beading wire from abrasion.

A charming TierraCast rose silver-on-pewter bead with a rose crystal (6mm) is added to the first link of the silver-tone curb chain. The chain extends the bracelet's basic 7.5-inch length by a full inch. (Please see my photos for a clear picture of the measurement with a ruler.) To the final link of the chain is connected the holy medal along with three dangles: another brown mookaite jasper bead; a pearl (4mm) and olivine bicone pairing with a daisy spacer between them; and a pearl and rose bicone pairing, also with a daisy spacer. The three dangles are meant to be reminders of the Holy Trinity.

The clasp used here is the lobster style and silver-plated. It's a nice user-friendly size at 15mm (roughly half an inch in length).

This sweet and pretty chaplet bracelet was made with care, thought, and the best of wishes! It's a lovely handmade piece for gift giving to anyone who has a devotion to St. Theresa of Lisieux or is interested in this special saint.

I would also like to note that both the religious medal and complimentary holy card included with this bracelet is from the Shrine of the Little Flower in Nasonville, Rhode Island. The shrine and its parish was founded in 1923, shortly after St. Theresa was beatified. It is the first shrine dedicated to this saint in the United States, and is a beautiful place of peace and contemplation. I loved my visit there, and hope to return again soon!

A Brief Word About St. Theresa of Lisieux
A highly popular saint of the Roman Catholic Church, St. Theresa is also known as "The Little Flower of Jesus" and "Therese of the Child Jesus." She was born in France in 1873, the daughter of Louis Martin, a watchmaker, and Azelie-Marie Guerin, a lacemaker. When Theresa was just a child, her mother died, a profound loss that, not surprisingly, had a major impact on her, making her withdrawn. At age 13, she underwent a visionary experience of the Child Jesus, which she later referred to as her conversion. She entered a Carmelite convent when 15, lived in a cloistered environment, and died of tuberculosis at age 24—seemingly a brief and rather uneventful life. Yet in her short time on earth, Theresa managed to write an inspiring autobiography that would become a beloved classic of religious literature, "The Story of a Soul." She was canonized in 1925. There is much more to this wonderful saint, and I hope you will explore the many good sites about her online!

About Nine Bead Chaplets
A nine-bead chaplet (often called a "niner") facilitates a simple and easily remembered form of spiritual devotion. Its conventional prayer pattern is three recitations of each of the following prayers: "Our Father," "Hail Mary," and "Glory Be." The trios of each prayer correspond to the trios of the prayer beads.

Having a chaplet as a bracelet is nice because it easily goes with you, right on your wrist, and can act as a reminder of spiritual practice as well as serve as a helper with that practice. It can be used for any form of good intention - such as offering thanksgiving, reflecting on penance, or petitioning divine assistance for oneself or others - or simply as a "time out" of life's busy flow to engage in spiritual contemplation or personal meditation.

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.

I like to ship quickly, usually 1 or 2 days after payment unless it's a weekend or holiday. Please ensure your shipping address is current.

U.S. ORDERS: I ship USPS First Class w/Tracking. If you want to purchase insurance or upgrade, please contact me.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: After many years of shipping internationally, I am temporarily ceasing such shipments.

However, if you live outside the U.S. and would like to buy something, contact me. I will do what I can to help. Be aware that any tariffs, customs fees, and surcharges are paid by the buyer.

Note that shipping is now very costly for USPS First Class International, which is what I would normally use. Also, if you live in the EU, I do not have GDPR policies at the moment.
I sincerely want you to be happy with your purchase.

Returns are accepted if you contact me within 7 days after delivery to you. I expect to receive the item no later than 2 weeks after delivery. If this timeframe is problematic for you, contact me before buying. Also, I do allow extensions for special holidays such as Christmas and Valentine's Day, as some people buy early, me included!

For All Items: I will refund for the purchase price minus original shipping cost.

You are responsible for return shipping with tracking (U.S.). Items should be in their original condition, with the original wrapping and packing materials. Extra items, like jewelry cards, gift bags, boxes, freebies, should be included.
Non-receipt: I will do my very best to help you if items go astray. Tracking provides information on the item's routing to its destination, and I always ship directly from the post office rather than relying on postal pick-up. Again, please be sure that your shipping address is CURRENT.

Damage: I pack orders well to minimize any problem in this area. However, if your purchase arrives damaged, contact me immediately. I will do my very best to help.

Buyers from other states may also be charged state sales tax. In this case, your tax payment is determined and handled by Etsy, not me.
Yes, I am always happy to accept a custom order! Whether or not I require a deposit, full amount, or neither will depend on the nature of the order. I have done a number of such orders elsewhere with no deposit or purchase required, as I knew I could simply add those items to my inventory if the customer decided not to purchase. (Customers always did purchase them, though.) I always show photos of custom orders to the customer.
If you are buying a gift for someone and have used that person's address for shipping, please let me know at the time of ordering - I will be happy to include a complimentary notecard in which is written whatever message you would like to send.

Of course, I am always happy to send to that person's address. Just please make sure it is CURRENT. Thank you!
