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.

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, tenner






click on images to enlarge
This tenner has 6mm, turquoise stone Aves, and an 8mm, indicolite (blue topaz) Swarovski crystal Pater Noster, cradled with bronze filigree caps. The Pater Noster beads are set apart from the Aves and the crucifix with 4mm bicone clear Swarovski crystals.


 




The beads are wire wrapped with 20 gauge bronze wire that is virtually unbreakable. The crucifix is a small and elegant bronze design, and the opposite medal is an Our Lady of Mt. Carmel with the scapular on the reverse. The crucifix and center are hand cast from solid bronze in the United States. The color matches the wire beautifully.


SOLD

Mary Immaculate, pray for us who have recourse to thee

Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate,
we unite ourselves to you under your title of
Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.

St. Michael the Archangel, Tenner

These tenner rosaries have become some of my favorites. It's such a nice size to keep in one's pocket or car. It doesn't take much time to pray ten Hail Marys, and over the course of a busy day, one can easily pray a whole rosary.

I changed my name





Well, not my name, name, but my rosary blog name. Because an Etsy shop with the name Prayerful Beads already existed before I opened my shop, I named my Etsy shop "Mary Devotions." That's what rosaries are...Mary Devotions. To Jesus through Mary.

So, while my blog address will remain prayerfulbeads.blogspot, my blog name and Etsy shop are the same. Thanks for reading. Wishing you a blessed Advent, and a beautiful feast day tomorrow.
