I was consecrated to Jesus through Mary in December of 2012. However, when I made my consecration, I searched for an iron chain to wear around my ankle, as recommended by the great Saint Louis Grignon de Montfort:
It is a most glorious and praiseworthy thing, and very useful to those who have thus made themselves slaves of Jesus in Mary, that they should wear, as a sign of their loving slavery, little iron chains, blessed with the proper blessing.
It is perfectly true that these external insignia are not essential, and a person who has embraced this devotion may very well go without them; nevertheless, I cannot refrain from warmly praising those who, after having shaken off the shameful chains of the slavery of the devil, in which Original Sin, and perhaps actual sin, had bound them, have voluntarily surrendered themselves to the glorious slavery of Jesus Christ, and glory with St. Paul in being in chains for Christ (Eph. 3:1; Philem. 9), chains a thousand times more glorious and precious, though of iron, than all the golden ornaments of emperors.
So, having no luck in my search, I made my own ankle chain. I made one for my mother who was consecrated on the same day. We’ve worn them ever since. I couldn’t find iron wire so these are made of steel wire. I added blue glass beads to make them even more Marian. They have no clasp as they are meant to be permanent. They don’t rust or mark skin or clothes in any way. I bathe with it on, and when I put on socks or stockings I usually wear it on the outside, unless my socks are too thick.
These chains are between 30 and 33 glass beads long at between 10.5 and 11 inches. You’ll want needle-nose pliers to fasten them permanently to your wrist or ankle. If you require a longer chain, send me an email message and I will make a custom chain for you at $1.00 per inch, plus tax and shipping.
