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.

Beautiful Auto Rosaries

.

A really nice woman from New England contacted me recently about making some auto rosaries for her family. As much as I like coming up with unique creations, I also love it when people tell me just want they want. She knew just what she wanted and I created them. These all turned out beautiful and will look gorgeous hanging in this family's cars.

For this rosary I used faceted fire-polished crystal Ave beads separated by rose Swarovski biconal and Japanese glass seed bead spacers. The Pater is a special lampwork bead that I have used in the past for my Roses for Mary auto rosary set apart by crystal Czech glass and rose colored Japanese seed bead spacers. The center is a cutout Miraculous Medal and the pewter crucifix is unique, with a heart at each tip. A St. Michael medal was attached near the center for the young lady for whom this rosary was made.

This rosary is made with lapis colored glass beads, with Czech crystal glass and blue Japanese seed spacer beads. Like the one above, the center is a cutout Miraculous Medal and the pewter crucifix is unique, with a heart at each tip. The medal attached near the center is a St. Joseph medal for the father of the family.
