I was recently privileged to work with a former member of the U.S. Marine Corps to create a St. Michael chaplet. He and I worked together to find just the right parts, from the Aves and Paters, to the Scapular center and, finally, a medal with the image of St. Michael on one side and the the USMC emblem on the other. It is such a pleasure for me to work with someone who wants to create a special rosary or chaplet because I know how very special that sacramental will become, and how well used it will be.

The Aves are 6 mm blue fossil beads, the Paters are 8mm intricate pewter beads and they are linked together in the pattern of the St. Michael chaplet -- nine groups of three. The center is a pewter Scapular image and the St. Michael medal is also pewter, with the image of the USMC emblem stamped on the reverse side.
