St. Andrew Chaplet Finished and Website Running!

Finally! I have finished the chaplet! If you missed the making of the purple star bead, you can see the whole process here.
Here is my description of the chaplet from my store:

The St. Andrew Chaplet is made with 15 purple clay stars. I created this star pattern that looks like a star bursting with life to symbolize the Star of Bethlehem. The St. Andrew Novena (which is included with the chaplet) is a Christmas anticipatory prayer that starts on the feast of St. Andrew (November 30) and ends on Christmas Day. Because St. Andrew is the patron saint of women trying to conceive, this chaplet can also be used as a prayer for the woman who is awaiting a child.

The oxidized St. Andrew Medal rests on a larger version of the star bead. Pewter colored glass beads are strung in between the clay beads. The chaplet is 5 and 1/2 inches long.

Comes with gift box and prayer card.

You can view the chaplet here on my website.

I just noticed this- looking at the photo of the medal on the clay disc, you might think the medal is glued to the disc. Just so you know, it's not glued, just attached with the jump ring.

I made these prayer cards with the novena on them to fit neatly into the box with the chaplet.

Also, I completed my new bead meaning sheet for my rosaries (praise God!). I have been wanted to have new bead meaning sheet with photographs of all the beads and their meanings that would fit neatly into the rosary box without having to fold it. After some late nights, it's finished! I love the new look. I was going to take a picture, but didn't. You'll just have to order a rosary to see it :)

Lastly, I have reopened my store for business. www.clayrosaries.com
So, what are you waiting for? I look forward to making your rosaries!

I have just received my St. Andrew chaplets. They are truly works of art. The colors are rich and dramatic. I will gift a couple to friends. My family will each have one to pray during Advent 2010. This chaplet is awe inspiring Sarah. Thank you so much.
