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.

Fire and Silver rosary

And I will put this third into the fire,
and refine them as one refines silver,
and test them as gold is tested.
They will call on my name,
and I will answer them.
I will say, `They are my people';
and they will say, `The Lord is my God.'"
Zechariah 19:3

This stunning rosary is made with the colors of fire and silver. The Ave beads are 6mm silver Swarovski pearls, and the Pater beads are 8mm Swarovski deep red coral satin. They are much more beautiful than can be captured in a photo.

The beads are wire wrapped by hand with non-tarnishing 20 gauge silver wire. 

The center, a Madonna on one side and image of "Ecce Homo" on the reverse, and the beautiful scrolled crucifix are both made from pewter.

The solid structure of the wire wrapping makes this rosary almost indestructible.

This rosary is available in my Etsy shop.

Love, Love, Love rosary

There is a new rosary in my shop, just in time for LOVE day...a sweet reminder of our Mary (vs Martha) love on this special day.

This rosary is whimsical in the very best way...a sweet reminder of love of God and Our Blessed Mother. I found these ceramic heart beads and knew they would make the sweetest Our Father Beads. Paired with 6mm leopardskin jasper in shades of brown, gray, and coral pink, they are a beautiful combination. The beads are hand-wrapped with 20 gauge vintage bronze wire, for a very durable rosary. The center is the Miraculous Medal image of Mary surrounded with flowers and leaves. The center and crucifix are hand cast (in the United States) in bronze from vintage originals.

Proceeds from the rosary go to our local Pregnancy Decision Health Center.
