Materials

Saint Dymphna Italian made medal, Swarovski white pearls, faceted amethyst rounds, Swarovski clear crystals, TierraCast silver on pewter daisy spacers, sterling silver twist crimps, sterling silver wire guards, silver plated lobster clasp and chain, TierraCast jump rings, 49 strand beading wire

Please note: This item is RESERVED for a customer. If you are interested in a St. Dymphna bracelet, please contact me and let me know. I would be happy to help you.

This St. Dymphna rosary chaplet bracelet is handmade from white pearls, purple amethyst gemstones, clear crystals, and an Italian-made saint's medal. A "niner" chaplet, it is designed around three trios of prayer beads, which here are represented by two large white pearls and one large faceted gemstone. The pearls are rich, glossy Swarovski beads (made in Austria, 8mm) and nicely complemented by the amethyst. Smaller gemstones (4mm) served as spacers. These are faceted rounds and flank the central amethyst in each bead trio.

I chose to include the amethyst because of its color: Purple is the awareness color for Alzheimer's Disease, and St. Dymphna, who since medieval times has been the patron saint of people with mental-emotional afflictions, has recently become the patron saint of those suffering from Alzheimer's as well. Please note that if you are purchasing this chaplet because of AD and would like an awareness ribbon charm added to the chaplet, I will be more than happy to add one, either at the end of the extender chain or with the St. Dymphna medal. Just let me know when you purchase! (Awareness of AD is a cause important to me because my dear father suffered with AD and died from it.)

The clear crystals are also from Swarovski (bicone, 5mm). At the end of the extender chain, I added a dangle based on the main beads in the bracelet. It holds a white pearl (6mm), an amethyst (6mm), and a clear crystal (4mm), which together symbolize the Holy Trinity.

This Catholic religious bracelet is designed with the three prayer-bead trios flanked by TierraCast silver-on-pewter daisy spacers (made in USA) and separated by single amethysts. Between each prayer-bead trio is a single bicone crystal. On each end of the strand, the chaplet is finished off with a crystal (4mm), two small pearls (4mm), a sterling silver twist crimp between daisy spacers, and a sterling silver wireguard. The crimps secure the chaplet's high-quality 49-strand beading wire (made in the USA), and the wireguards help to prevent abrasion of the wire.

On one side of the strand, the holy medal is attached with an oval jump ring (TierraCast silver on pewter). Also attached with a duplicate jump ring is a good-quality silver-plated lobster clasp (12mm, made in USA). On the other side of the strand is the extender chain with the dangle at its end, also attached with an oval jump ring.

The length of the bracelet's main strand is approximately 7 1/2 inches. The extender adds an extra inch to that length. Please see my photos for a picture showing the chaplet bracelet measured by a ruler. My own wrist is currently 6 3/4 inches, and this bracelet fits loosely on me when clasped at its shortest possible length. It is comfortable, but I wouldn't recommend a smaller wrist for this chaplet. If you have a small wrist, feel free to contact me for a custom order or a custom shortening, both at no extra price.

This meaningful St. Dymphna adjustable chaplet bracelet with white pearls, amethyst, and crystals was handmade by me with care, thought, and best wishes for its destined owner. It comes in a pretty organza bag and wrapped up nicely, all set for gifting to someone special—perhaps yourself! It is a lovely, inspirational piece for devotion to this important saint, and comes with a complimentary laminated holy card (shown in my photos).

More About the Chaplet Bracelet's Medal and Complimentary Holy Card
Please note: I purchased the medal (which is base metal) at the Shrine of the Little Flower in Nasonville, Rhode Island. The shrine and its parish was founded in 1923, shortly after St. Theresa of Lisieux was beatified. It is the first shrine dedicated to this saint in the United States, and is a beautiful place of peace and contemplation. As for the holy card, which is a lovely Italian-made laminated piece, I purchased it at the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette in Massachusetts. The shrine is a peaceful, meditative place - and very special!

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 reminder of spiritual practice as well 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 personal meditation.

About St. Dymphna
St. Dymphna is the patron saint of people suffering mental and emotional disorders. In recent years, she has also become the patron saint of Alzheimer's patients. Dymphna lived in 7th-century Ireland, and was the daughter of a pagan king and Christian mother. When the latter died, her father experienced such mental-emotional anguish that his advisors pressed him to remarry. However, no one but Dymphna was as beautiful as his deceased wife, and the mentally deranged king, encouraged by the advisors, sought to marry his own daughter. She fled Ireland, settling in Geel, Belgium; but her father tracked her there and decapitated her when she refused to return home with him. Dymphna, also known as "The Lily of Eire," was declared a martyr not long after her death. In medieval times, a church dedicated to her was built in Geel and became a popular pilgrimage site for the mentally ill. In the 16th century, a far larger church was erected at the location when the original burned down, and it is still a pilgrimage site today. Most of St. Dymphna's remains are housed in a reliquary at Geel, and over the centuries, many miracles at this site have been attributed to the saint. Interestingly, some of her relics are also housed in Massillion, Ohio, at the national shrine of the saint at St. Mary's Catholic Church. St. Dymphna is also the patron saint of incest victims.

About Amethyst
A member of the quartz family, amethyst is traditionally considered a protective, talismanic stone. The name amethyst comes from the Greek word "amethusos," which means "not drunk." The gemstone is associated with the crown chakra, and is the birthstone for February. Amethysts are actually crystals and often have inclusions, clouding, white quartz, and other interesting elements to them, as well as various shadings of their distinctive purple color.

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.

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!
