Who wouldn’t love a rosary under $25? With our current inflation, supply chain stuff and all the other wonky things happening in our world right now it seemed a good time to focus more on creating new rosaries that anyone could afford, featuring basic Italian silver tone parts and my basic wire and chain option (not heirloom). I’m starting with the neon colors because, well, I love them so much!!! But also plan to have others soon. There is a banner in the store to click on, but you can also use the word Under25 in the search bar to see what’s new. I will post pictures and links on Facebook as I get them finished, but for now here is a sneak peek. 🙂
I hope all are well. 🙂 I wanted to give you all a heads up about my rose/Immaculate Heart centerpiece: http://www.rosarystuff.com/Rose-with-Immaculate-Mary-SP-34-in_p_537.html
My manufacturer has run out of the image we normally use for that center which means my new batch is a mix of the old and new. The new image has a white background and the Immaculate Heart is much clearer than the old one.
For now I have both available in the same listing as before to make comparing the images easier, but in the future the new center will be moved to it’s own listing. 🙂 If my awesome customers decide they prefer the white image then I can make sure we use that one on all future orders. OK? Otherwise, next time we will have him make more of the blue.
Take care and have a great week!!
I have just added 2 new rosary centers to the online store in both the retail and custom rosary sections. Sorry it took me so long, but I really think they were worth the wait. 🙂
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!!!

Beads, Beads and More Beads!!
I just started listing some Czech glass beads for rosary (and jewelry) makers to use in their own creations! Unfortunately this is taking much longer than I originally expected, but hopefully I will have everything updated within the next few months! If you are looking for a specific color and don’t see a listing in the bead section, please contact me to check for availability.
Take care and God Bless!!!
