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.

Mystical Rose, pray for us

.

I recently gave this rosary away on my blog, Praying for Grace. Stay tuned there for a Father's Day giveaway.


This link rosary has dark blue Swarovski pearls for the Aves, large oval crystals for the Paters, a pewter heart-shaped, rose crusted Madonna and Child center, and scroll etched pewter crucifix.

St. Michael, protect us





I recently had a request for a couple of St. Michael chaplets, and I was reminded how I love the prayers of this beautiful devotion. The meditations can be found here.

Made for a mother and daughter. The first of these chaplets is made from dark blue fossil Ave beads, strung with white and blue seed beads, and white, mother of pearl, silver filigree-capped Paters beads. The center is a beautiful, handmade, lampwork bead in green and purple and blue from Luxemburg.

The second chaplet is a link-style with purple, fossil Ave beads, and silver filigree-capped, white, mother of pearl Pater beads.
