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 Guadalupe Roses in December

Listen, put it into your heart, my youngest and dearest son, that the thing that disturbs you, the thing that afflicts you, is nothing. Do not let your countenance, your heart be disturbed. Do not fear this sickness of your uncle or any other sickness, nor anything that is sharp or hurtful. Am I not here, I, who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not the source of your joy? Are you not in the hollow of my mantle, in the crossing of my arms? Do you need anything more? Let nothing else worry you, disturb you. Do not let your uncle's illness worry you, because he will not die now. You may be certain that he is already well." Our Lady of Guadalupe to St. Juan Diego

This rosary, dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe, is made with 6mm yellow jade round Ave beads, and 8mm siam red Swarovski crystal Pater beads, like gorgeous roses, with beautiful curled natural brass bead caps. The beads are hand wire-wrapped with 20 gauge bronze wire. 

The Our Lady of Guadalupe center is a stunning hand-cast center with solid bronze from a vintage center. The center measures 1.5" by 1". The solid bronze crucifix is 2" by 1.25" and is also hand-cast from a vintage crucifix. The center and crucifix are set apart with 4mm bronze Swarovski crystals.

This rosary is currently available in my Etsy shop.
