Announcement   hello! kris' rosaries and such -- your source for custom, unique, and super fun rosaries and rosary accessories -- is back by popular demand.

please see my online gallery at kriswinningham.smugmug.com for a sampling of custom rosaries and other items i have made over the years.

i take pride in creating rosaries that are just as individual as the occasions, people, life-events, etc. they commemorate. i do this because i know how disappointing and frustrating it can be to find a rosary that doesn't look like it came off some orwellian assembly line then set next to a bunch of others just like it at the local catholic supply store. wouldn't you want a rosary that makes you smile each time you take it out to pray it?

i am always available for custom requests; in fact, the vast majority of my pieces are made-to-order. if you have a color, saint, maybe a general theme in mind, or even just a random idea, we can design and create the perfect rosary together.

also, any rosary in my shop can have a special medal attached: miraculous and marian apparitions, patron saints, etc. just let me know what you are looking for!

i am very convo-friendly. please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, custom requests, etc. thank you!

Amazing!! My daughter loves this. We got it for her first communion. It's very well made and the style was perfect for my spunky little girl.

About

truly unique, custom rosaries and rosary accessories -- from day one!

one year, i decided to buy my mom a very special rosary for her birthday. after searching all over town and online, i couldn't find anything special in my price range and certainly couldn't afford anything that i considered truly unique. so, using the independent spirit she and my dad passed on to me, i decided i could figure out how to do it myself!

it took (more than) several failed attempts, but she finally got a gorgeous crystal, ruby, and sapphire rosary. i'm not sure she even uses it, she loves it so much! (which was not my intent, but hey.)

since then, i've honed my skills and signature style and have created hundreds of rosaries for a wide variety of occasions. gifts for baptisms, first communions, confirmations, graduations, to say thank you or encouragement for folks in their fight against cancer, weddings, births - a few of my rosaries have even been interred with the recipient (the highest of honors in my opinion).

most of my items have been custom requests and are not reflected here on etsy. please see my gallery at kriswinningham.smugmug.com to see more. thank you!

hey there! thanks for checking out my etsy shop. feel free to browse my 100% 5-star review ratings and sold items for past work -- also, my gallery at kriswinningham.smugmug.com has many more examples of custom work.

my day job is in quality control, so i have high standards for everything. i only use components that have a reputation of quality and longevity: czech fire polished and pressed glass beads; swarovski crystal; beadalon wire; miyuki seed beads; stainless findings whenever possible; and fine italian rosary parts. i always double crimp each end of wire for security; no equipment failures on any of my items have ever been reported.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
i happily accept paypal; if you do not have a paypal account, no worries! you can still use paypal to checkout with most major credit cards without an account.

if you are requesting a custom item, i do require a deposit. we can figure out the details, but typically it's half the total agreed-upon price.
Shipping
rosaries are shipped in usps priority mail flat rate boxes with delivery confirmation. in my experience, 2-3 days is typical for delivery. i'm in indianapolis, which is pretty much central to everything. we are the crossroads of america after all.

after working at both major private shipping companies and seeing how all those poor defenseless boxes are treated, i pack boxes so they survive the trip; it may seem like overkill when you open your package, but guess what? it made to you in the original packaging, and your rosary is unhurt. i have not received one report of damage yet.

other non-rosary items (destash, etc.) may be shipped usps first class with tracking. this will be noted on the item's page.
Refunds and Exchanges
all sales from kris' rosaries and such are final. however, if for some reason the item you have ordered is not to your satisfaction, please let me know so the situation can be ameliorated.

i do my best to clearly photograph and thoroughly describe each item listed; this typically takes longer than making the rosary! if you have ANY questions, please convo me.
