Irish Penal Rosary - Aventurine
The Irish Penal Rosary is a single Decade Rosary used during penal times in Ireland when Roman Catholicism and it’s objects was forbidden.
I’m use the crucifix was hidden in the sleeve or palm while the ring was placed over the thumb as the first decade of the rosary was recited. The ring is then placed over the next finger as the next decade is spoken and so on u til all five decades are completed.
These can also be used as good luck charms in cars, or attached to hand bags or keys.
All items are designed and hand made in Melbourne
