Cynthia Webb is a California artist specializing in handcrafted fine pewter whose work has been internationally recognized for its warm, evocative style and enduring themes of faith, family, and spirit. Her designs range from simple hearts to complex angels and miniature landscapes, and all begin with her original sketches. She then carves each design in jeweler’s wax and signs and titles the original. A mold is made from the wax original, allowing duplicate pieces to be created. Each piece is hand-finished, oxidized and polished, and a thin lacquer coating is applied. She takes as much care with the back of the design as she does the front, etching into it intricate details that reflect the design on the front of the piece as well as the title of each creation.
Her work is all handcrafted in the USA.

Anglican Rosary: Knotted Cord Rosary Label

Anglican Rosary: Knotted Cord Rosary

Cathy Hutcheson

Note that due to the hand-crafted nature of the Rosary, colors may not be exactly as shown in the image. Our color selection changes periodically. Most are one-of-a-kind.

In 1948 Sister Mary Imeldine, CSSF, was inspired, by watching fishermen mend their nets, to design the knotted cord rosary. Using fishing twine, Sister Mary Imeldine’s students made 4,000 rosaries that first year. Today, thousands of rosaries have been made.

While the Catholic Rosary has 59 beads and the Hindu mala 108, the number of beads in the Anglican rosary has been set at 33, the number of years in Christ's life. A set of Anglican beads is comprised of four sets of 7 beads called "weeks". The number 7 represents wholeness and completion, and reminds us of the 7 days of creation, the 7 days of the temporal week, the 7 seasons of the church year, and the 7 sacraments. Four "cruciform" beads separate the "weeks". They represent the 4 points of the cross and its centrality in our lives and faith, the 4 seasons of the temporal year, and the 4 points on a compass. Anglican prayer beads use a cross rather than a crucifix. Near the cross is the "invitatory bead". The beads may be of wood, glass or stone and the cross of wood or metal.

The Anglican Rosary is more than a simple recitation of prayers. The beads offer a focal point to help keep the mind still while praying, thus allowing the prayer to become physical as well as mental. The purpose of praying with beads is to allow the repetition of words (a Bible verse, mantra or portion of a psalm, for instance) to quiet the mind and bring us into stillness. At the end of the rosary we are invited to sit in silent communion with God.

The Anglican Rosary is limited only by one's imagination. Portions of the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, such as the daily devotionals or Prayers of the People, are easily adapted to rosary praying. The daily collects and lectionary readings are another possibility. One might use a favorite canticle or psalm, or the Nicene Creed, or even the verses and refrain of a favorite hymn. The Jesus Prayer, Lord's Prayer or Serenity Prayer also lend themselves well to the rosary, as do adages such as "this, too, shall pass" or "let go and let God". All of these methods are simply a means to the Way, a vehicle to deep, still silence in God's presence, the ultimate form of prayer.
