I am branching out into 9mm beads with this new rosary! Great rosary if you like very large beads or have problems manipulating small rosary beads.

Art can speak to the soul...

Art has always been an outlet for me and influences how I see the world. When I was growing up, my twin sister and I would compete at local coloring and poster contests. Later, I took art classes in high school and continued in college concentrating on drawing, design, and art history. However, I pursued a major in business and brushed my art talent to the side for several years. In the last 15 years, I have had the opportunity to go back to my roots of painting and now I’m at a place where I can share my passion with others. I gravitate toward painting with acrylic, ink, and oils while trying to push the boundaries in finding new ways to get paint on canvas. For me, I thrive on spending time in my art room enjoying the time in silence and solitude. Sharing my art with others is one of the best gifts I can give.

Making rosaries is a newfound passion of mine that I discovered when I joined my parish’s rosary making group. After making mission rosaries to be distributed throughout the country, I decided to branch out and try making olive wood rosaries for my Etsy shop. Why olive wood? I received my first olive wood rosary from a friend years ago and I always loved the simplicity praying with the wooden rosary. Olive wood is a harder wood which makes it ideal for durable rosaries. Plus, the curled wood grain is so beautiful! My rosaries are made with olive wood beads from the Holy Land. Making rosaries is a form of prayer for me and I can’t seem to get enough. Lord, continue to bless the work of my hands.

Thanks for visiting BarbMcLaughlinArt on Etsy.

Frequently asked questions
How long does shipping take via USPS?

For USPS First Class package service, it can take approximately 2 to 6+ business days for items to be delivered. Shipping times are approximate and not guaranteed. Please note that after the package is dropped off at the USPS, it is out of my control.

Can one of your rosaries be worn as a necklace?

No, my rosaries are designed for prayer and are too short to be worn as a necklace.
