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.

Car Rosaries


A dear friend asked me to create for her some car rosaries to give as gifts at Christmas. I posted a few of them before Christmas and below are the rest. Each one is unique and I was very happy with them. They can all be recreated. The magnetic clasp makes it easy to disconnect and connect again, so you can grab it for prayer time and hang it back up when you're done.

This rosary, modeled after this one, is so beautiful and feminine. The Aves are 8 mm purple Druk glass and the Pater is an 8mm ivory Druk glass bead with brass caps, separated with iridescent purple and ivory glass seed beads. The unique Madonna center and crucifix are studded with pearls.

This rosary is probably my very favorite in the bunch (though I think every rosary I make is my favorite). The Aves and Paters are 8mm red, green and white millefiori glass beads. The Pater is capped with silver flower petal caps and they are separated by silver-lined gray and silver-lined crystal glass seed beads. The center is an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

This rosary was also one of my favorites. Brightly colored and sparkling with light, the Aves and Pater are 8mm two-tone blue and green glass, with caps on the Pater, separated with silver-lined crystal and aqua colored glass seed beads. The center is unique, diamond shaped with the initials, IHS, of Our Lord in the center.

This car rosary is made with 8 mm green tiger eye Aves and an 8 mm capped black Onyx Pater separated by silver-lined gray and black glass seed beads. The center is a Miraculous Medal image of Our Lady with an M and a cross in the center.
