St. Agnes of Rome (early 4th century) is a renowned martyr of the early church, and the patron saint of chastity, engaged couples, and victims of sexual assault.  To tie this chaplet to her time period, ancient Roman glass beads are used here for a chaplet in Her honor.  These glass beads were unearthed in northwester Afghanistan, along ancient Roman trade routes to China.  The beads have not been reworked and the drills are quite large, so heavy 20g Sterling wire wraps were used to construct this piece.  The Sterling has been hand-oxidized to match oxidized textured cable chain, and to provide some color contrast with the beads, which are delicates shades of aqua, white and green.  A guide to praying the St. Agnes chaplet is available in the library of nine bead chaplet prayers. Glass is much more delicate than stone, so this chaplet is best used at home rather than being carried.  Beads are shown here with front and back surfaces.  A sweet and unique chaplet!
