We offer an inexpensive 27-bead wood rosary that can be worn on the wrist like a simple bracelet or carried in a pocket. The beads are strung on a strong elastic cord. The beads are made from the wood of a fast-growing tree (Pittosporum pentandrum) native to Southeast Asia that is cultivated for bead production—a renewable tropical hardwood. The beads are non-toxic. We offer these rosaries in two color choices: the light tan color of the natural wood; and a warm light brown obtained by dying the wood. The rosaries come in a velveteen bag with a drawstring.
These rosaries come in two sizes. In the small rosary, the main beads are 6mm (1/4”) in diameter and the divider beads are 8mm (5/16”). In the large rosary, the main beads are 8mm in diameter and the divider beads are 6mm.
Small wood rosaries fit wrists smaller than 6 ¼” or 6 ½” (16 or 16.5cm) in circumference. (The small wood rosary is snug, but not tight, on a 6 ½” wrist.) Large wood rosaries will fit most wrists 6 ¼” and greater in circumference.
