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!!!

For me, aqua is a reminder of the amazing colors I saw in the Caribbean ocean. This wonderful green-blue color is definitely one of my most popular rosary colors. The shade used in most glass and crystal beads is based on aquamarine (the stone) which can vary in color from dark to light and also from clear to opaque. Some involved in energy medicine and other alternative practices believe that aqua is representative of things like courage, balance, serenity , peace, tranquility, calming, and cleansing.
Best of all, Aquamarine is also the official birthstone for March!!!
Amethyst is another of my most popular rosary colors. Energy medicine and other alternative practitioners believe that amethyst is representative of spirituality, peace and healing energies, but for me personally it has always been a very a spiritual color tied to the season of Lent and the suffering of Christ. The shades used for most of my glass and crystal beads are based on Amethyst stone colors and will vary from darker, to lighter, to milky and even a more grapey color. I also offer a few genuine stone bead options for those who appreciate the beauty of real stone.
Best of all, Amethyst is also the official birthstone for February!!!

Over the next few months I will be doing A LOT of work on the store including back office stuff (i.e. meta tags, category detail, etc), as well as retaking many of the Czech glass bead pictures. Since many of the pictures have become faded over time, I decided it’s about time to update those a bit.
Once finished I’ll continue to add more beads to the supply section of the store. But, since this project will take a while to complete, I wanted to let you all know that if you are interested in any of the Czech glass beads in the custom rosary section of the store, please don’t hesitate to contact me to see if I have extras available for sale. OK?
