I Made St. Andrew Chaplets!

Supplies:
  • .018" 19 strand bead stringing wire
  • 15 8mm purple beads (I used some kind of amethyst)
  • 14 4mm sterling silver filigree beads
  • 2 1.3mm crimp beads
  • 1 medal (St. Andrew is ideal, but use a Miraculous Medal in a pinch)
  • 1 St. Andrew prayer
Hail and Blessed be the hour and moment
in which the Son of God was born
of the most Pure Virgin Mary
at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold.

In that hour, vouchsafe O my God,
to hear my prayers and grant my petitions,
through the merits of Our Savior, Jesus Christ
and His Blessed Mother, Amen.

You, too, can make a beautiful chaplet like this.

 

I absolutely love these beads!


I made two... one for my husband and one for myself -- though I think I'll send one to my mom, too.


The chaplet began yesterday (on the Feast of St. Andrew) and will go until Christmas.

St. Andrew is one of the many patrons of want-to-be mothers.
