New Centerpiece and Cross Added!

Hey Everyone!

I just added 2 new unique Italian silver plate rosary parts to the online store. One is a double sided Holy Spirit/Holy Family center and the other is a very unique red enamel Infinity Cross.  Come by and check them out!! 

Why Cancer Rosaries for Charity??

My cancer rosaries are dedicated to friends and family members who have passed from various forms of this scary disease. They are a small gesture to help those who are going through, or have recently been through, the trauma of Cancer. At a time when they need to heal, find strength, and process through their grief. To read about the symbolism behind my custom cancer rosaries click here for Breast Cancer and click here for All Other Cancers.

It is not uncommon for those with a severe illness to lose their support systems. Sometimes family and friends aren’t strong enough to cope with the challenges and sacrifices involved in being there for someone who is very sick. It’s just too difficult for them to watch someone they deeply care about suffer so much.

I’m hoping my rosaries will be a source of comfort and support for ALL cancer victims (including those who feel completely helpless while their loved one either struggles for their life or loses the battle). They are also a gentle reminder to those who have survived to thank God every day for the gift of life and continue to pray for a cure.

The important thing to remember is praying for cancer victims, their families and friends is not enough. We also need to pray for those involved in cancer research, like the drug companies, doctors, scientists, etc. Sometimes their focus strays and their priorities shift to financial gain instead of finding life saving and affordable treatment options.

50% of the profit from all of my Cancer rosaries goes to various charities for Cancer Research.cancer rosaries

Tiger Jasper and Crackled Quartz Special Intention Rosary

This is the 2nd in a new line of Speziale Special Intention Rosaries.  This one was made using a mix of Tiger Jasper and Clear Quartz beads. The slightly crackled round clear quartz stone adds a little bit of interest to the beautiful, swirls of the brown Tiger Jasper. The Italian silver plate center and crucifix combo are paired with my thicker 20 gauge silver plate wire and an aged 20 gauge silver plate chain to accent the antique finish on the center and crucifix. For those who believe in the healing properties of stone, Tiger Jasper is said to take us out of our logical mind and more into our bodies. It’s a stone that is supposed to help us “live in the moment”. Personally, I love this stone because it looks like petrified wood. You get the look of wood, without the fragile nature that comes with some wood beads.  Come by and take a peek!!
