Guardian Angel Awareness Ribbon Earrings

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.

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.

Custom Special Intention Rosary

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.

Riverstone & African Map Jasper Special Intention Rosary

This is the 3rd in my new line of Special Intention Rosaries.  It was made using a mix of Riverstone, African Map Jasper and Clear Quartz beads. The faceted clear quartz stone adds a little bit of interest to the beautiful, soft ivory color of the Riverstone.  The Paters are cubed African Map Jasper beads capped with AB Clear Czech glass flower bead caps. The Italian silver plate center and crucifix combo are paired with my thicker 20 gauge silver plate wire and 20 gauge sterling silver chain to accent the bright finish on the center and crucifix.  For those who believe in the healing properties of stone, Riverstone is said to give strength and energy to those who are working toward change in their lives.  African Map Jasper is said to help with relaxation, and grounding.  Personally, I love both of these stones because of their unique, earthy beauty.  Click on the image below to take a closer look at this beautiful rosary.

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!!
