Due to unemployment, and thus financial hardship, I have changed my policy of not adding labor cost to my rosaries. I hope that you can understand why this is necessary and will continue to support my apostolate. At this time I need to support my family with my skills and resources. I have not added much to the cost of each item -- not as much as most vendors would, doubling or tripling their cost -- but just enough to contribute a small amount to my family's income.

Rhodonite Seven Sorrows Chaplet





This devotion was instituted in the 13th century in honor of the Seven Sorrows the Blessed Virgin Mary endured by her Divine Son. It is practiced upon a Chaplet made up of seven times seven beads, each section of seven beads are divided from the rest by larger or different beads, representing the seven principal sorrows of her life.

The Ave beads of this chaplet are 8mm rhodonite beads and the Paters are 10mm bronze Swarovski crystals with bronze filigree caps. 





The beads are wire-wrapped with 20 gauge bronze wire for a very durable chaplet. These beads are large, good for large hands, and the chaplet is rather heavy.








The center of the chalet is the heart of the Seven Sorrows and the medal is Our Lady of Sorrows. On the reverse is the depiction of the crucifixion. The center and the medal are solid bronze, hand cast from vintage originals.



This chaplet is available for purchase at my Etsy shop.
