My main creative outlet has always been writing. I'm fairly new to the idea of making things with my hands.
I'm not sure why I gravitated to making rosaries, I think it has something to do with the fact that there are specific patterns to follow, but within those patterns you can be as creative as you want - kind of like writing metered poetry. My aim is to make "rosaries with personality" that are different from what others are offering.
When trying to think of a shop name, "Secondary Creations" came to mind because I've been a Tolkien geek since 1969, and secondary creation is J.R.R. Tolkien's term for any creation done by us humans. Only God can perform primary creation - making something out of nothing. So secondarycreations seemed like a fitting name for items created by putting together things that other people have made.
