Announcement   Welcome! Thank you for visiting!
Here you'll find one-of-a-kind Rosaries and PrayerWear (TM) which I've handcrafted using semi-precious and precious stones, and antique and vintage beads.

My rosaries are unlike anything you'd find in a typical religious shop; while I make each one with skill and care, they're truly unique expressions because of the distinctive combination of beads and crucifixes. The bronze and sterling crucifixes and centers I use are created by artisans who create their castings from antique, sometimes even ancient, rosary parts, making Testament Handcraft Rosaries and PrayerWear (TM) pieces even more one-of-a-kind, and rosaries destined to become heirlooms.

I am currently producing my new line of wire-wrapped and linen strung rosaries, as well as a range of chaplets, rosary bracelets, and necklaces. Please watch for them coming soon.

I pray you feel the joyful spirit in my handwork, and find a special piece you love.
Blessings to you!

So happy with this beautiful rosary! My mother would have loved it and I got it in her memory. Fast shipping and everything was perfect, thank you!

Oh I am so happy with this rosary. The artist did some rework on the piece and it is just PERFECT! I now have four items from this artist and one repair and everything was great. Each item was better than the last!!! I could never tell you how easy and wonderful this artist was to work with. Five stars is not near enough.

About

I love to create with my hands.

I spent nearly 20 years in the corporate rat race of advertising. While it was exciting and allowed me to be creative, after suffering several strokes when my darling daughter was born, I found that it would never be possible for me to live that crazy life again.

While staying at home to raise my daughter, I found I still needed a creative outlet, as well as work with my hands to help recover from the strokes. Besides writing, I began to work again with jewelry-making and knitting, handcrafts I hadn't touched for years.

In so doing, I found I loved to create beautiful things from rocks and metals and fiber! And when people would stop me to find out where things I was wearing came from, and would sometime buy items right off me, I realized I should sell them.
