The color purple, in the Church, is the color for repentance -- true sorrow for sin. And as such, this beautiful rosary is the perfect tool for atonement. My dear, long-distance friend Renee contacted me recently to create a rosary for her (to be a Christmas gift from her husband). After thinking about what she wanted, she decided on purple, and creamy white, and this beautiful crucifix and center set, seen with this rosary. I think Renee made a beautiful choice -- these colors are rich and reflective and royal -- the perfect combination for supplication to Our Lord through His Blessed Mother -- Refuge of Sinners.
The Ave beads are violet Czech druk glass beads, and the Paters are a soft creamy white druk glass, and all are set apart by deep purple Czech glass and soft gold Japanese seed beads.
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.
