Welcome! I'm so glad that you took the time to browse my little shop. In case you wondered what I'm about, here's some pertinent information.

• All Rosaries are carefully and prayerfully hand crafted using quality Rosary components, including Italian-made silver oxidized, pewter, and/or gold tone centers and Crucifixes. I make rosaries traditionally, using eye pins and rosary chain.
• I offer beads in sparkling Austrian Crystal, high-quality Fire-Polished Czech glass, colorful Millefiori Glass, and many types of beautiful semi-precious gemstones in 6mm and 8mm sizes as well as various shapes. Custom sizes are available.

• Have a devotion to a particular Saint? Chances are I can make a personalized Chaplet just for you.

• Special Occasion Rosaries are available seasonally. First Communion, Baptism, Birthstone Rosaries, Mardi Gras, Seven Sorrows of Mary Chaplets, 7 Archangels Chaplets, Precious Blood Chaplets, Stations of the Cross chaplets, Beads of the Dead Chaplets, Christmas Rosaries…even customized colors. If you need one, contact me and together we will create a beautiful Rosary for you!

• Custom Rosaries can take 4 to 6 weeks from order to delivery, so please plan ahead. While I do not require payment up front to order a custom rosary, purchase is expected within 2 weeks of posting the listing. If payment via PayPal is not received within that time frame, the item will be placed in general listings in the shop.

It is always a blessing to create…A Rosary For You!

Additional policies and FAQs

Q: Will the metal parts of my Rosary change color?
A: Yes, they will eventually develop a beautiful patina, a softening of the bright shiny metal tones. Most people, myself included, prefer the heirloom appearance of the aged metal. However, if you are determined to keep that silver from changing color, my advice to you is to store it in a little plastic zippy-bag when you're not actively praying with your Rosary, along with the little black anti-tarnish paper that I included with your purchase. However, the absolute best way to keep it nice and to pray. Use it. Frequently. :-)

Q: Is your home smoke- and pet-free?
A: No, on both counts. We have an ever-changing cast of characters here, human and feline. While no one smokes in the room where the rosaries are made, I cannot guarantee a complete lack of smoke. We have 3 rescued feline siblings who, to my continual frustration and dismay, like to leap upon the rosary workbench. So, if you are allergic to either cat hair or cigarette smoke, you may want to pass.

Q: Help!! My Rosary came apart! What do I do now?
A: Congratulations on praying so fervently! Eye pin rosaries are very sturdy, but if you pull too hard the pins can separate just enough to slip apart. And we've all had that happen. If you've only got one link that's pulled apart, chances are good that you could repair it yourself. However, if you've caught it on something and it's in several pieces, just locate all the pieces that you can, first thing. (Beads change, and can be notoriously difficult to match properly.) Then, message me...and after you've heard from me, send that Rosary right on back here. I'll repair it for you and send it back ASAP so you can keep on praying.

Q: Can I wear my Rosary?
A: Are you asking this as an ecclesiastical question, or about the sturdiness of the rosary? Here's the first part of the answer. Opinions vary wildly about when, where, and whether it's ever appropriate to wear your Rosary around your neck. Obviously, if you're a member of the Clergy or Religious, it's always appropriate. Personally, my feeling is that every time one presents Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary to the world, at least folks around are reminded of Their presence, and reminded of prayers. As far as belief goes, I don't think it's sacrilegious. On to the second part of the question: are these Rosaries sturdy enough to be worn daily? I'd advise against it. They're certainly sturdy, well-made Rosaries. But as stated in a previously answered question, these Rosaries are made in the traditional manner using chain and eye pin construction and will pull apart if you pull hard enough. Necklaces get caught on things easily, especially long necklaces. Most of my lovely Rosaries measure 22 inches long at the least, and many can be up to 26 inches in length. These Rosaries that I create are meant to be used for prayer and meditation, not to become fashion accessories. However, you are certainly free do what you wish. If you choose to wear your Rosary outside of your clothing, you assume all risk and responsibility for breakage.

Q: Do you do custom items?
A: Absolutely! I have many different centers, Crucifixes, Saint medals, and beads. I would be delighted to talk with you about creating a custom Rosary, auto rosary, chaplet, bookmark, etc...Just for You! However, some times of the year can be extremely busy, and while I can usually get your custom Rosary to you within a 2-3 week time frame, some orders can take from 4-6 weeks so plan ahead. :-)
