I love this little rosary! I know it was aimed at men, but I am keeping it :) Just right for a pocket or purse. I had been looking for a tenner with a St Benedict's medal and this is perfect.
A blessed journey
I began making jewelry almost 10 years ago out of "necessity" - I needed a gift for a dear friend's birthday. For some reason (I do not now recall), I decided to make her a bracelet. I went to a local bead shop and was immediately "hooked"! Seeing all the delightful and delicious beads in a variety of colors, shapes, textures and sizes was just too much! I knew this was a project I would enjoy, and want to continue doing.
Then my Dad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in 2009 and I was in shock. He had already lost 2 siblings to cancer, so I was aware of the seriousness of this. It was only 6 weeks later and he was gone. My Mom and I grew in our faith, though it was difficult. My sister, who is mentally & physically challenged, had a very hard time; Dad was her "hero", provider and protector. She is doing much better now, and we have all adjusted to this major life change. Though we do miss him very much, we know we WILL see him again.
In between these two events, I had some health challenges and stopped making jewelry for a time - I actually came very close to giving all my supplies away to the dear friend I made the original gift for! It was after my Dad's passing that I began making jewelry again. How often I wish I could share this with him!
In the Fall of 2011, I decided to open my Etsy shop. I greatly enjoy the people, community and shopping here on Etsy! It is a terrific place full of wonderful people, and I am amazed & blessed to be involved in this global-community!
I continue to grow and learn in my jewelry skills and strive to produce a high-quality product that meets my standards of quality and value. I am committed to you, my customer, and thank you for your support and encouragement!
Thank you for stopping by to read my story and check out my shop. Feel free to contact me about anything - even any prayer requests you may have.
Blessings in Christ,
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
Making jewelry is a passion for me. I greatly enjoy the whole process. I believe each piece has an owner out there waiting to find it, and that is a great joy & blessing for me. May you, too, be blessed by my creations. Glory to God!
Secondly, I am a wife (of a pastor and rancher!). I also greatly enjoy handcrafting jewelry, photography, making & buying cards from other artists (I send a lot of cards!), baking, gardening, and walks in nature.
Please send me a conversation (Etsy e-mail) if you see something you like, but perhaps want it in a different color, size, etc. - I am happy to discuss options with you! Customized orders may incur additional fees. Be aware that some of the items I make are limited designs - sometimes it's a matter of limited/one-of-a-kind supplies, other times it's simply because I'm ready to move on to new designs. But always feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
For custom orders, I like to have time to pray & think on the design and create a special item for you or the one you will gift it to, therefore the turnaround times on custom orders are unique to each piece. Custom orders typically incur additional fees, as I will spend the time needed in designing and sourcing materials for your special item! Contact me if you would like to discuss details.
