Handmade Catholic & Anglican rosaries, prayer beads, rosary bracelets, faith inspired jewelry - unique beads of praise made by me, just for you.

The Irish Penal Rosary came into being during the time of religious oppression in Ireland in the 17th century. Death became the common penalty for attending or celebrating the Mass. This era became known as the "Penal Times" and the Penal Rosary became popular as it could be easily hidden up a sleeve or in the hand so the devout could continue to pray without fear of being detected.

This handsome small rosary is made with 8mm round unakite gemstone beads in earthy colors of rust, olive green and cream. The Our Father bead near the cross is a large smooth serpentine oval, deep green with black matrix lines through the stone. All the beads are individually linked for years of prayer.

The crucifix is a traditional Irish Penal design in pewter, slightly oxidised to show the detail. It has many symbols of the crucifixion on both front and back, and comes with a little card explaining what they are. The ring is beaten silver pewter and is 25mm/1" across.

Crucifix: 5cm x 2.2cm / 2" x1"
Total length: approx 33cm/13"

This small rosary is suitable for regular use, or would make a thoughtful gift or addition to a collection and comes attractively wrapped for gifting.
