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.

Hail, Holy Queen
I recently received a request from a gentleman who asked me to make a rosary and a chaplet for his wife (how sweet!). He knew he wanted purple beads, her favorite color, but other than that he had no preconceived notions. He liked the purple beads I used on this rosary (who wouldn't - -they are gorgeous!), and with purple being the color of nobility, as well as having much significance in our faith, it was the perfect color for both pieces. Together we selected the colored medals for the chaplet and the center and crucifix for the rosary. They turned out very pretty and his wife was pleased. What a dear man to take care of his wife's spiritual needs. God bless him!
The chaplet is a link Seven Sorrows of Mary Chaplet, made with 8 mm violet Czech druk glass Aves, and medals depicting the seven sorrows for the Paters.
The Seven Sorrows Chaplet is prayed using these prayers, meditating on the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Mother.
The rosary (pictured above) is made with the same 8 mm violet Czech druk glass, capped with sterling silver for the Paters. The center is a simple sterling silver Miraculous Medal, encircled in a silver ring, matching the circle in the sterling silver Celtic crucifix (because the recipient is Irish). The links and chain are all sterling silver as well.
