I recently found out my manufacturer discontinued the flat link chain I use on my less expensive rosaries. 😦 I can special order more, but the minimums are HUGE!
For now I am experimenting with the next size up. As soon as I am able I will add both options for my custom rosaries, but here is a picture so you can see the difference. They are very close in size, but the new stuff has a thicker look to it and is slightly larger. Once I add this option to the store I will take a better picture next to beads so you can see how they look. As always if you have questions please let me know. 🙂
Just a quick heads up to let you know that my old pewter cancer sets will be retired as of January. If you want a few sets before they are gone, please let me know. All left over stock I have will be donated to charity to make room for the new stuff coming. 🙂
To those of you who know me, you know that every once in a while I put items on clearance that are either discontinued or that I will no longer carry. We’ll, it’s that time again! 🙂 Here is a list of the current items that I am clearing out to make room for other inventory. Once they are gone, there will be no more, but as in the past, if there are items that you use regularly I should still be able to request a special order for you, but the purchase will have to be in mass. OK? As always if you have questions, please let me know.
Since finding rosary centerpieces for certain saints can be difficult, I decided to take the plunge this year and have a couple made.
The 1st is of St. Dymphna. I’ve had more people requesting this one lately and the only other option I could find for her was a more expensive American made model. Unfortunately for some, the cost for those is just too high. My center is Italian silver plate. It features a lovely image of the Virgin Mary on the front and a photo of St Dymphna on the back. St Dymphna is most widely know for her patronage for those suffering from nervous and mental afflictions, but there is actually a long list of other causes she represents including sleepwalking, epilepsy, insanity, family happiness, incest victims, loss of parents, martyrs, mental asylums, mental health caregivers, mental health professionals, mental hospitals, neurological disorders, possessed people, princesses, rape victims and runaways.
The 2nd new centerpiece is of Saint Agatha. Again, it’s a less expensive option for those who can’t afford to spend a lot on a center. Any of my rosaries made using this centerpiece will have 50% of the proceeds donated to research. This Italian silver plate center features the same rose as my Immaculate Heart center with a photo of St Agatha on the back (patron of breast cancer). Click on the images to visit the store listing. 🙂 Discounts are available for both of these centers.
I have just listed the last in a series of earrings made using my own Speziale Guardian Angel Awareness Ribbon charms. Once these earrings are gone there won’t be anymore, so now is the time to buy. 🙂
There are 2 pairs with surgical steel posts and 2 pairs with sterling silver French hooks. The hooks allow the charms to hang lower than the posts, but both options are a great way to raise awareness for these awesome causes. For now they are listed in my Etsy store, but if you want to buy them from my online store, please let me know and I can create a special listing for you.
**50% of the profit from the sale of these items will go toward research for a cure!!**
