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 recently found a fantastic new Pater option for my August (Peridot) Czech glass birthstone rosaries!! It’s a lovely luster Peridot rosebud. Now you have the option to use the traditional milky diagonal cubes or the rosebuds. And remember, if you want to mix in other colors or choose different parts you can do that as well.
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.

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.
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.
