Due to unemployment, and thus financial hardship, I have changed my policy of not adding labor cost to my rosaries. I hope that you can understand why this is necessary and will continue to support my apostolate. At this time I need to support my family with my skills and resources. I have not added much to the cost of each item -- not as much as most vendors would, doubling or tripling their cost -- but just enough to contribute a small amount to my family's income.

Our Lady of Sorrows

Click on the picture to view a close-up.

This chaplet was created for a fellow homeschooling sister on the Ora board and, through creating it, I have learned how beautiful praying this chaplet can be. The Seven Sorrows of Mary, also known as the Seven Dolors, are contemplated through the seven sets of seven Aves and seven Paters.

This chaplet was created using medals depicting each of the Seven Sorrows as well as the first medal, depicting the image of Our Lady of Sorrows. The beads are gorgeous 6 mm fire-polished ruby red opaque Czech glass.
