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.

Holiest of Sacraments
Is there anything more beautiful than a child receiving his or her First Holy Communion? The tradition, the beauty, the celebration -- it's all so truly awesome. For that reason, I love to make a First Holy Communion rosary. Often a First Communion rosary is the child's first "real" rosary, so it has a special significance. I recently made a very girlie First Holy Communion rosary for my friend Sara's daughter. She wanted pink and white and silver, and we chose a Miraculous Medal for the center. It's perfect for a girl to use as she grows into adolescence and womanhood.
The Aves are iridescent pink glass, the Paters are Mother of pearl, capped with silver filigree and in between are the tiniest oyster pearl and white silver-lined seed beads.
