Now you will never be withour your prayer beads; key ring featuring 1 Septet of the Anglican Rosary
I’ve been making several Rosaries today. Some for folks who have purchased them on others because I wanted to share the gift of prayer with someone.
Whilst I was making the last of the sets I had to do for today I was looking for my key ring, only to find part of the key ring had broken off.
I looed around for the broken part, amidst a bed full of beads and other bits n bobs and I thought – why not. So I got out some left over tiger tail, a split ring and a lobster clamp and got a little creative; it happens now and then.
After a few attempts to get it they way it seemed to look in my head I finally finished up with this key ring featuring 1 Septet of the Anglican Rosary. I usally have a set of prayer beads handy as a rule. However, now with this little even more portable version attached to me keys I will always have my prayer beads on hand. Well unless I loose my keys.
The prayer chain is made of 8 mm tigers eye for the week beads and for the invitatory and cruciform bead I’ve used two 8 mm fancy jasper beads. The cross is the Tau Cross, a traditional symbol associated with St Francis and Franciscans. For an explanation of the Tau Cross and its connection with Franciscan spirituality see view this description of the Tau Cross from the Franciscan Friars of the Third Order.
