Earth Day prayer beads, Lutheran prayer beads, Lutheran rosary, stainless steel, hand-wired, Malay jade beads, budded crucifix, Springtime


I made this set of Lutheran prayer beads with Earth Day or Springtime in mind.
Its made with green and brown Malay jade beads and features stainless steel eye pins and a silver-toned budded crucifix.

This rosary is hand-wired using stainless steel eye pins and my trusty little looper tool. The beads are connected by these loops.

The smaller beads are 8mm Malay jade beads. They're mostly green but they have some brown speckles.

The larger beads are 12mm green Malay jade beads.

The focal point is a large 57x35mm crucifix.
25.4mm is about 1 inch.

The cross is silver-toned metal. The jump rings are aluminum.

This rosary is 17 1/2 inches long from the center top to the bottom of the crucifix.

Please note one of the Sunday beads is offset at the center. It is supposed to be that way.

All rosaries, prayer beads, and malas will come in a small organza bag for safe storage.


In doing my research, I found that some Lutherans use the Catholic rosary with modified prayers, some use the Anglican rosary with modified prayers, and some use no rosary or prayer beads at all.

There are several different variations on the Lutheran rosary, but they all center around Lent.

This version was created in 2005 by a seminary member and his wife. This was at the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania.

As mentioned before, the rosary is centered around the Lenten season.
There are six sets of six beads representing the days of the week excluding Sunday.
Then there are 7 larger beads representing the Sundays.
Then where they are joined, one of the Sunday beads, and four small ones, then a crucifix.

I do not claim to know everything about this rosary, but my research is ongoing.

I will be adding more information about the symbolism, history, and how to pray the Lutheran rosary.

If you would prefer a cross instead of a crucifix, please let me know and I will swap it out for you.
