About

I love being a Grandmother and Mother. I have 6 grown children and 8 grandchildren. I am single. My family is raised and I am retired from administration and marketing for a local real estate firm, where I worked for 28 years.

My new career is designing contemplative jewelry, mostly rosary bracelets. Next to spending time with my family, this is my favorite thing to do!

On most any given day, you will find me at work creating beautiful rosary bracelets and accessories. I have always enjoyed art, sewing, crocheting and crafts and continue to find pleasure in creating something beautiful from bits and pieces.

I was born in Marin, my home is now in Petaluma, a small town in Sonoma County, California, 30 miles north of San Francisco. My mornings start at our local Pete's Coffee. Every…

I was born in Marin, my home is now in Petaluma, a small town in Sonoma County, California, 30 miles north of San Francisco. My mornings start at our local Pete's Coffee. Every morning depending on what time and what day, I can count on a great latte and a chat with anyone of the morning regulars at Pete's. I have been drinking coffee every morning since I was only three years old. (That is another story).

My love for rosary bracelets began several years ago, when my sister popped in to my office with a gift for me. It was an exquisite aquamarine rosary bracelet. The small, light blue Ave beads were delicate ovals. The Paters were Swarovski Crystasl with intricate silver bead caps. The Crucifix was a tiny sterling silver hand wrought about an inch long. I was captivated. I put it on that day and wore it each and everyday thereafter.

You might think I am a religious person, but I am not. My sister, on the other hand is a devout Catholic and has unending faith. Her faith has served her well and there are many a day when I wish I had that kind of faith.

This bracelet was an amazing gift. It brought my such pleasure and it did remind me to pray. One day I realized that I could make rosary bracelets. Once I began, it became a passion. To this day I love making these bracelets, I never grow tired of the process. This is a labor of love.

I hope my bracelets will bring others some of the same benefits they have brought to me.

Weather or not you are religious, a rosary bracelet is a beautiful piece of jewelry. My bracelets are versatile, you can order them with or without the holy medals and either way, they are completely beautiful.

A rosary bracelet is a piece of jewelry that will not go out of style. It is more than a bracelet and makes a wonderful conversation piece.

I have made very special bracelets for clients of other faiths. The Jewish bracelet I made is beautiful and instead of the Miraculous Medal and Crucifix, I used the Star of David.

These bracelets may be personalized in a number of ways. I have created "Mother/Daughter," 4 Generations, Birthstone, a special design for boys and the list goes on and on.
