I am often the recipient of rosaries that have no home. I usually donate them to our parish church -- there is a receptacle for rosaries for those who don't have one, and I'm happy to pass them on. Sometimes, however, when a rosary has beautiful parts, or is not complete in one way or another, I re-purpose the parts as much as I can. I received this center and crucifix, and seeing how pretty they were, I decided to use them for a glass rosary. The Ave beads are 7 mm apricot-colored glass and the Paters are 7 mm crystal glass with silver bead caps. The center is silver tone with the image of Our Lady of Fatima.
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.
