This is an abbreviated version of the full-size St. Joseph Chaplet, which normally has fifteen sections for the fifteen mysteries. I made it in the traditional purple (for Joseph's saintly piety) and white (symbolic of his purity). I used 6mm purple, faceted quartz crystal beads and purest white faceted alabaster for the 8 separator beads. The spacer beads are lead-free Tibetan silver beads. The chaplet begins with a third class relic Italian medal of Saint Joseph. It's all close looped together with nickel silver wire for maximum strength and durability At 19" in length, this is perfectly sized to carry in a pocket, or purse. I'll include the complete prayer instructions (to complete this chaplet, you would simply pray the loop twice), a St. Joseph's prayer card and a keepsake organza pouch with your purchase.

He was chosen by the eternal Father as the trustworthy guardian and protector of his greatest treasures, namely, his divine Son and Mary, Joseph’s wife. He carried out this vocation with complete fidelity until at last God called him, saying ‘Good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord.’ - from a sermon by Saint Bernardine of Siena
