Great quality and timely delivery. I'm very pleased with this! The only problem is i ordered it a size too big, but that's my own fault. I didn't double check my choice 😩

Extremely pleased with this lovely "12-Step" prayer bead. Already have one to a friend and keeping another for myself. So many coworkers have asked about it. Service was pronto!

Welcome from Auckland in New Zealand.

Kia ora! Hello from New Zealand. I live and work in Auckland, which is the biggest city in New Zealand. I am lucky to live on a secluded property on the fringes of the city so I have peace and quiet and an abundance of nature's sights and sounds to keep me inspired in my work of creating beautiful beads of praise.

I come from a long line of jewelers and people clever with their hands in all sorts of ways, so I grew up surrounded by wonderful things made by the hands of people I loved. I'm pleased to carry on the tradition of handmade, and I know that every handmade thing carries an essence of its maker in its lines, colors and contours. I love taking a pile of materials and components and turning it all into something else - I hope you find something in my work that you enjoy too, and which could become a spiritual companion on your daily walk.

My sister Deborah shares my workroom, and together we make prayer beads, jewelry and rosaries for many faiths. We both support our families through this full-time work, and love that we can share our love of handcrafted meditation and prayer beads with people all around the world.

Attention to detail is of prime importance to me, and you will find that all my prayer and meditation beads are smooth and comfortable to hold in the hands and are well-made for regular use - by rugged hands as well as children. It gives me so much pleasure to imagine my beads of praise traveling to new homes worldwide - from my hands to yours.

This Etsy store showcases my Anglican and Christian beads of praise, as well as Recovery Beads, Prayer & Meditation Beads and personal jewelry. Sean, another family member, helps with photography and computer issues. I couldn't resist the opportunity to put up photos of the art dolls I made of us!

You can see Deborah's Catholic rosaries in her Etsy store, One Day's Grace, just follow this link:

Buyers outside New Zealand are responsible for all duties and taxes that may be payable in their own countries. These are taxes charged by some countries on some goods imported into the country over a certain threshold in value. They may include VAT, GST and import or customs fees.

Every country has different regulations and different values for these taxes, which are levied by the Government on the residents of the country. They are not part of shipping costs and are not charged by me, the NZ Government or by Etsy, and (if assessed or payable) are the responsibility of the purchaser to pay in their own country. Please contact me before purchase if you have any queries about these costs, or refer to your own Government's information services, or this website may be helpful to you:

Please contact me before purchase if you are unsure what these charges mean for you.

Second or subsequent items ship for FREE if they are going in the same parcel to the same address!

Most packages will arrive at their destination within 10 - 15 business days of dispatch from New Zealand. I use New Zealand Post priority international airmail. Tracking for this service is not available past the border of your country.

Delays in shipping can occur. I use an international mail alert service to check for known delays each day, but from time to time there are problems around the world. If you need your purchase in a short time frame, please contact me before purchasing so that I can check with our Post Office in New Zealand what the maximum shipping time could be. For my part, I will send your purchase as soon as possible, often the same day - and after that I have to rely on the service provided by the carrier.

Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me within 14 days of receipt so that we can work together to ensure your satisfaction.

Please be aware that if you have paid VAT or GST, or other custom or import fees, I cannot refund those payments to you. The amounts paid for Government taxes in your own country are not paid to me, they are paid to your Government. Contact your own Government services for more information on refunds of those amounts.

If a product is faulty, a full refund or replacement will be made immediately upon the return of the faulty item, and any shipping costs incurred will be reimbursed. If the item is damaged in transit, please keep all wrapping materials as we may require photographs of it in order to make an insurance claim, as well as photos of the damaged item. A claim cannot proceed without photographs.

If your purchase is not what you imagined it would be once you hold it in your hands we are happy to offer a refund, exchange or store credit (your choice) upon receipt by us of the item in its original condition and packaging.

We are online shoppers too, and know that occasionally a purchase can seem different in your hands than it did on the screen - we are always willing to talk. In most cases if you are returning a purchase for these reasons, we will ask you to cover the cost of the shipping. Upon receipt of the returned item, we will immediately process a refund, exchange or store credit to the value of your original purchase price.

If your parcel is not delivered at all (lost in transit) we will do everything we can to help with a claim with your mail service provider. We can only track items as far as the border to your country, so once a parcel has entered into your country it is your local post carrier that the claim is made with. They may require an affidavit or statement from you before considering any claim for reimbursement.

For lost items, a replacement or store credit is usually not an option so a refund will be made when the claim is accepted by the carrier.

Additional policies and FAQs

To get the best fit for your bracelet, measure your wrist with a soft tape measure, or use a piece of string and make a mark where the string crosses over then measure between the marks with a ruler.

Add 1 inch (2.5cm) to that length for a relaxed fit for adults, or add just 1/2 inch (1.5cm) to the measured length for a baby or child.

You can choose the length bracelet you want from a drop-down menu before checking out. Remember the wrist size and bracelet length are not the same thing, so don't forget to add the extra allowance to your wrist measurement.

Most of my adult bracelets can be made in lengths between 6" and 9". Smaller and larger sizes are available, but may require some design changes to make sure the overall look is balanced. I do not charge extra to make your bracelet in the perfect size just for you - please don't hesitate to ask.

Am am happy to add a short extension/growth chain at the clasp of any of my bracelets for no extra cost. Bracelets with a toggle clasp cannot have an extension chain added. If you want an extension chain, you will need to have a spring action lobster clasp which can do up into any link on the chain.


Stretch bracelets are designed to be a snug fit on your wrist. Measure your wrist where you want to wear the bracelet and order that size for a snug fit. If you want a loose fit, order the next size up.

Sure! I am happy to make a custom item for you along the lines of the items you see in my store. Most of the beads, medals and charms you see in my shop are available for customized items. Contact me and let me know what you are looking for and I will tell you if I can make it for you.

No they do not. GST and VAT are taxes your Government imposes on residents of your country. They are not set by me and I do not collect them from you for your Government. If your purchase is assessed for GST or VAT tax, you will need to pay the amount in your own country before you can take delivery of the parcel.

In the case of refunds, I cannot refund any tax or fee paid to your country's Government. Tax and fee money is not paid to me, it is paid to your Government. Contact your Government services for more info.

If a parcel is returned to me because you have not collected it and paid the tax/fee assessed in your country, I cannot refund the shipping cost of sending it to you. That money has gone to the Post Office and they will not refund it if you refuse or fail to collect a parcel.
