This is my new full sized Czech glass car rosary featuring jet black round beads, unique antiqued silver, diamond shaped, dice Paters and a St. Christopher medal. Unlike other car rosaries, these are fully customizable, and contain the complete lower section (instead of just 1 bead). If you would like to get more information about what colors and parts are available in this price range, please contact me.
This particular SSIR was made using beautiful light sapphire, ab clear and white pearl Czech glass beads. The photo center features Our Lady, Undoer/Untier of Knots who has recently become a popular mainstream image thanks mainly to Pope Francis. He considers it one of his favorite depictions of Mary. The original painting was created by Johann Melchior Georg Schmittdner around 1700 and hangs in the Church of St. Peter am Perlach in Augsburg, Germany. Mary is shown undoing or untying knots in a ribbon. The knots can be representative of all kinds of things from sin, world and community instability, marriage, medical, or job problems, or any personal or societal issue that seems insurmountable and beyond our reach to resolve on our own.
I recently teamed up with the National Fibromyalgia Association to create a new version of my Fibromyalgia rosary as a way to raise money and bring awareness for the millions of people who live with fibromyalgia. Many people in our country suffer with this incurable illness that is characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, depression and cognitive dysfunction, among many other symptoms. 50% of the profit from this rosary will go to the National Fibromyalgia Association, whose mission is to develop and execute programs dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with fibromyalgia.

I finally have my 6mm round, luster transparent amethyst beads back in stock!! They had been on back-order for a while now. Currently they are listed in the Custom Rosary section as an option for those purchasing a custom rosary, but in the near future I’ll add them to the loose bead section as well!!
This beautiful custom Speziale Special Intention Rosary was made for a very special woman. We used Czech glass beads throughout. The Aves are a mix of luster transparent amethyst and pink. The Paters are round crackled clear glass topped with silver plate rondelles. We chose my open floral miraculous medal paired with my new leafy crucifix. The bright finish on the parts looks great with the bright finish of the 20 gauge silver-filled wire and 20g sterling round link chain. All the pieces work together to create a very sweet, very girly, one-of-a-kind rosary.

Everybody LOVES diamonds!! Since most high quality diamonds are used for jewelry, rosary makers turn to some less expensive options that still add a “diamond look” and sparkle to any rosary. Alternative options include clear quartz stone, clear glass and even Swarovski clear crystal. The most flexible of the three is Czech glass because clear options are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and finishes (matte, AB, luster, etc) that other glass, crystal, and stone colors don’t always offer.
Some even believe that diamonds enhance things like competence, trust and love. They are also a symbol of strength due to their sturdy composition. Although diamonds are usually the first choice in engagement rings, they also represent both the 10th and 60th wedding anniversaries. Another interesting tidbit, many ancient religions saw diamonds as either hardened tears or tools of God (or of “the gods” depending on the religion). What a wonderful visual to keep in mind for those whose birthstone is the diamond!!
Best of all, Diamond (Crystal Clear and Quartz) are also the official birthstones for April!!!
