This is another example of the beadwork I've been doing for nearly 20 years.

Designed in the Anglican or Episcopal tradition, this small chaplet rosary is easily held in one's hand or kept in a pocket.

Most major religions have some form of prayer bead. The Anglican rosary was developed in the mid-1980s by an Episcopal priest, the Rev. Lynn Bauman, as a result of a contemplative prayer group.

Beautiful faceted pale amethyst beads accented by rich dark amethyst beads ending in a filigree cross.

Other examples of rosaries, as well as more of the jewelry, can be seen at
