Handmade in New Zealand 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. 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 unique rosary is made with handmade ceramic cube beads, reflecting the steadfastness of the people of the time. All the beads are individually wire-wrapped before being linked together which makes a strongly constructed rosary to last for years of prayer.

The crucifix is a traditional Irish Penal design in pewter, slightly oxidized to show the detail. It has many symbols of the crucifixtion on both front and back, and comes with a little card explaining what they are. The ring is beaten silver pewter.

Crucifix: 5cm x 2.2cm (2" x 0.9")
Total length: approx 40cm (15.7")

While the rosary is 40cm long, its construction means it easily folds to be held in one hand. It is suitable for regular use for men or women, or would make a thoughtful gift or addition to a collection.
