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.

Brass Scapular and White Howlite Beads

.

The individual parts of this rosary just seem to meant to be together. I bought these 6 mm white howlite beads, simply because I thought they looked interesting. I really had no idea what I'd do with them. And then I put them next to this beautiful antique brass Scapular center and crucifix. Pretty. But separated with the brass spacers, the pale copper Japanese seeds beads and black copper Czech beads, which appear almost blue and copper on this rosary (but are the ones on the rosary below this post that take on the brown of the obsidian), all the parts are perfect. Elegant, even sacred with Our beautiful Jesus in the center, and perfect.

Behold the Man for Father Tony

.

Our associate pastor has been reassigned and is leaving this week for his new parish where he will be pastor. We have certainly become very fond of Father Tony. He is a young, sweet man with an obvious love for God and his vocation. We have had the pleasure of being his parishioners almost since he was assigned at our parish straight from seminary in Rome. God bless Fr. Tony in this next step on his path of service to God.

This rosary I created for Fr. Tony is made with mahogany obsidian 8 mm beads, set apart with black hexagonal glass Japanese seed beads, and black copper (which appear brown) Czech beads. The Paters are set apart with antique brass spacers. The center is Ecce Homo, Behold the Man, in antique brass, and the crucifix is also in antique brass.

Opal Glass

.

This rosary is made with some of my favorite beads. I have many favorite colors, but I love these opal glass beads because they are no one color, because they are every color. Though mostly milky white, they reflect color from around them while maintaining their milky whiteness. They 8 mm large and on this rosary are matched with a pretty, yet simple, Madonna center with the Sacred Heart image on the reverse. The crucifix has simple lines, but is elegant with the beads. Both the center and crucifix are silver-tone base metal.
