New 'Ultimate Rosary' at!

Now in the shop, listing
Every so often, I create a Rosary that pulls out all the stops--and this substantial handmade Rosary is another in my 'Ultimate series.'   I used my best and most beautiful sterling silver bead caps, a 3" sterling Crucifix and a center of St Anne with the young Virgin Mary. The stormy blue Agate is from Brazil, and has been gaining in popularity steadily.  For this Rosary, I used a lighter blue for the Paters and a darker blue for the Aves.  Freshwater Pearls complete the Rosary.
This is a substantial Rosary--30" long and approx 6oz in weight (4oz of which is Low Tarnish Sterling).  The Aves are simply double wrapped with sturdy 21g wire on each end, then swirled around the bead itself for beauty and durability.  The wire wrapping is so strong, I guarantee it against breaking for life.  Period.
The Rosary has been carefully crimped to eliminate any sharp ends.  It is a pleasure to pray--the wire swirls around the Aves gently leads your fingers to the next bead, and the Rosary itself has a nice heft and feel in the hand.  Because of its size, this Rosary is not suited as a pocket  Rosary--but will happily live in a purse or backpack--or in the home, ready for prayer in an instant.
Nothing was neglected in making this one of my Ultimate Rosaries.  It will arrive boxed in silver and in a organza and velvet beaded gift bag, ready for presentation.
Layaway is available.  Instructions on praying the Rosary included
Thank you for looking and blessings+

Each deep raspberry cream Hail Mary is double wrapped in Sterling wire at each end and swirled around the bead, making this an unbreakable Rosary--no jump rings to pull apart.

Garnet and Silver at HeartFeltRosaries


Glorious gem-quality Garnet pairs with an equal-arm Cross in solid Sterling Silver. I was told this is called the Redemptorist Cross, but I have not been able to confirm that--perhaps you know and can contact me?
The Garnet is 5-6mm, clear, with hints of pink raspberry.  The Our Fathers are 11x13mm oval Bali bead with perfect garnet cabochons front and back.  These beads are handmade in indonesia and are smooth and silky.  Another Bali bead, a 4mm tube is accented with small Garnet rounds.
This is a substantial Rosary, nearly 3oz in weight.  It is a pleasure to pray, smooth and silky, with a lovely 'feel' in the hand.
Each Hail Mary is looped, then double wrapped on each end, then swirled across the bead and wrapped once more for a connection so durable it is guaranteed against breakage for life. Period.
As always, it will arrive boxed in silver and in a lovely velvet and organza beaded gift bag.

Layaway available.

This little chaplet has a beautiful medal of St. Anne that has been reproduced from a museum piece for us to enjoy.

The chaplet itself dates back to 1875 and is the source of a great number of favors both spiritual and temporal.

The beads are gemstones, and the Our Father beads are lampwork beads. The entire rosary, all the beads, have been wire wrapped in bronze 20 gauge wire that has been treated to resist tarnish.

The beautiful bronze medal depicts St. Anne and has a lace-like border. It has been polished, but you can allow it to develop a patina if you wish. It can be cleaned with a soft jewelers cloth.

Catholic rosary, Miraculous, White Turquoise and Deep Blue Cloissone Beads

This rosary has been made by using 8mm white turquoise or howlite as the AVE beads and wrapping each one with gold 20 gauge wire and attaching it to the next bead. The gold wire has been treated to resist tarnish.

Cloissone beads are beads with thin metal strips attached and then enamel is filled in the spaces to create a beautiful and one of a kind bead. The Pater (Our Father) beads are dark blue cloissone beads that are about 14mm. They too are individually wire wrapped only in a configuration of beads including bead caps and crystals for decoration.

The crucifix and Miraculous center are uniquely finished brass that is antiqued and finished. The result is a beautiful antique gold color. 

Wire wrapping guarantees a rosary that will not break under normal use. It can be cleaned with a jewelry polishing clothe. The beads in this rosary can be cleaned also, but please do not drop on a hard surface such as kitchen tile because they are stones and can break.

Feel free to ask questions if you have them. Free shipping in the US.

The Crucifix, Scapular medal center, and St Christopher medal are solid Bronze, hand cast right here in the USA by a skilled artisan from the antique originals. The St Christopher medal is of French origin, and states on the back,' I am Catholic. In case of sickness or serious accident, please call a priest.'

This is a one decade Catholic Rosary made with multi-color tigers eye beads. The colors are beautiful and include red, blue and yellow 10 mm beads. Each AVE bead is individually wrapped with gold 20 gauge wire that is copper based and has an anti-tarnish finish.

I made the beads in this rosary a little larger for hands that have problems praying with tiny rosary beads. This would be nice for a man too, because it can be carried in the pocket and prayed anytime.

The beautiful crucifix depicts the Holy family, and the medal on the other end is Mary and Joseph.

The Pater bead is one 14mm yellow tigers eye followed with bronze bead caps and wrapped completely. Before and after the Pater bead is a crystal for decoration.

This one decade rosary is a nice size for a lot of people. Consider giving it as a gift to someone or for yourself to keep in your pocket or purse.
