The Aves on this chaplet are 6mm round rhodondite. If you believe in the power of stones (I don't but I do find the meaning some people find in stones to be interesting) you would know that the rhodondite is used to heal heartache and loss, help ease stress and for reflection. Our Blessed Mother would tell us that following her Holy Son is what heals heartache and loss and eases stress, and I would certainly agree. Praying this chaplet is a beautiful way to follow Jesus, by reflecting on the Seven Sorrows of Mary as they all pertain to the life of Christ Jesus.
The Paters are 8mm round light rose Swarovski crystals, capped with antique bronze caps. The beads are wire-wrapped in 22 gauge vintage bronze wire. The center is the Sorrowful heart of Mary and the medal is the Blessed Mother with the crucifixion depicted on the reverse side. The center and medal are set apart with 4 mm light rose Swarovski crystals.
I asked Our Blessed Mother to help me pick the person who needed this chaplet the most. And the winner is:
Congratulations and email me your address.
Everyone else stay tuned because I might spring another one on you during Lent.
