This piece is brand new - I just made it - but it has a definite Old World vibe and visual weight. Absolutely nothing about it looks shiny, slick, cheap, modern, or new.

And I'm absolutely in love with these faceted 8mm Czech glass beads. As you turn them in the light, you'll see glints of luscious opaque turquoise, stunning translucent emerald, and rich, clear cobalt flecked with golden amber. I've highlighted the subtle flecks of gold with copper bead caps, antiqued to a vintage patina. 

Bronze reproduction of an antique Spanish cross is finished in 12K gold with a gentle patina, as is the antique reproduction medal with St. Michael on one side and the Virgin Mary on the other. Finished with a chain extension and lobster clasp if you want to wear it or secure it around a statue or rearview mirror.

The saintly protector par excellence, Michael is called on to defend against dangers both spiritual and physical and from enemies both known and unknown.

Unclasped, this chaplet's length from end to end is 10". Decade loop is 9", meaning it will fit a 9" wrist, but I'm happy to customize it if you need it shorter or longer. (Just use the customization form to give me your details and allow a few extra days handling, please!) 

This style of chaplet is called a "niner" and is a popular and very portable way of doing a novena for a saint, of keeping your prayer beads close to hand when you're traveling or need to be more discreet than a full-size rosary might allow, or of having a set of prayer beads the perfect size for wearing as a bracelet or keeping on your car's rearview mirror or the door knob of your room or home.

One way of praying with a niner chaplet is to call on the saint's aid on the medal, pray the Our Father x3, the Hail Mary x3, and the Glory Be x3 on the beads, and then the Apostle's Creed on the crucifix.

You can also simply treat it as one decade of a standard Marian rosary that you'd start over on for each subsequent decade to say the entire series of repetitions. If you're new to traditional Catholic prayers, I'm happy to send you more resources if you need them - just ask.

As with all of my spiritual jewelry and art items, I'm happy to incorporate your specific petitions or intentions as I dress, fix, and bless this piece in preparation for sending it along to its new home. Just fill out this customization info form to give me your info/requests after you check out.

And if you've never been sure how St. Michael can be a saint and an angel at the same time - and he most certainly is - you can get a little crash course in Catholic ontology at Seraphin Station.


LEGALESE: As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.

Shipping/Handling/FAQs: Please click over to the Shipping/Handling/FAQs tab to read about handling times, shipping notification, and other terms of service, as your use of this site indicates your acceptance of these published terms, which include but are not limited to the following.

By using this site, you are stating that you understand and agree to our Terms of Service, including the following highlights:
  • handling times start at five business days minimum for all items  (excludes weekends and holidays)
  • posted handling times are estimates, not guarantees, and will vary depending on order size and amount of customization involved
  • all sales are final; we do not accept returns
  • any refunds must be initiated by us; chargebacks are considered theft

See the TOS page for more details.
HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5 business days minimum and will be longer for custom-finished items, large orders, and some specialty/extra strength formulas. You can expect a 10-day handling time for an order with one custom item, and longer than that if the order contains multiple custom items. Why? Two reasons:
One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, decanting and praying over every oil order as it comes in, for instance. It's not a matter of just grabbing a bottle off a shelf and popping it into an envelope. And I stock only what I know I can use within a certain shelf life. That means I can have unexpected runs on formulas that use up my stock of an ingredient and it takes a few days for more to arrive, or I need to go to back of our acreage and dig up a certain root to go in your custom spell kit. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience.
Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line, stuff like that.
USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that all-natural does not equal hypoallergenic. If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.
LEGALESE:  As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
