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.

Pink Glass Seven Sorrows
I've had a little time lately to create some rosaries with supplies I have on-hand. It's nice to pick through my beads and decide what I feel like making.
This Seven Sorrows Chaplet is made with 6 mm peachy pink glass beads and Seven Sorrows medals.
The Seven Sorrows of Mary, also known as the Seven Dolors, are contemplated through the seven sets of seven Aves and seven Paters. This devotion to the Blessed Mother originates in the thirteenth century. On the Seven Sorrows chaplet, we meditate upon the Seven Sorrows the Virgin Mother endured by witnessing the life and death of her Son, Our Lord Jesus.
