This lovely devotional piece is made up of 6x9mm rondelle beads, which are also sometimes called donuts. The beads are a vibrant, ruby red, facetted Czech glass. All the metals in this rosary are base metals and/or nickel silver.

Stunning coral and silver necklace. The coral pieces are approximately 10mm to 15mm each and the necklace is choker style (equalling a 23cm drop). The stunning silver beads are created by Nicole from NValentineStudio - check out her store at "Coral" is finished with a sterling silver "S" clasp. Whilst the piece may look chunky it sits beautifully and can be worn in all seasons - wear it with a jumper or t-shirt, you're sure to be complimented!

Beautiful honey agate scultured into an autumn leaf complimented by coiled artistic wire and honey agate chain. Spoil yourself with this gorgeous piece which you can wear anytime of the year, in particular Autumn looks sensational with black! So go on ... be tempted!

This little chaplet could go by many names. It is a 'tenner', a pocket rosary, a one-decade rosary, and Irish Penal Rosary or, in the Irish, An Paidrin Beag (the Little Rosary). Whatever you choose to call it, it will serve your purpose! I did design this 'tenner' as an Irish Penal Rosary. It is styled after the rosaries carried in Ireland in the Penal days in the 1600's, when it was illegal to be Catholic, and being caught with a rosary could mean fines, imprisonment or worse. This style of chaplet was easy to hide in a pocket or up a sleeve. It is one decade with an Our Father bead. When saying the rosary, start by putting the ring on your thumb. For the next decade, put the ring on your forefinger, and so on. Even though there is no longer any need to hide it, it is still a convenient piece to carry.
