Parts arrived from Italy this week. Woo Hoo!! I have restocked many of the basic centerpieces like the Miraculous medal, Lourdes & Fatima water centers and Mary with Baby Jesus. I have also restocked my traditional angular crucifix, relic crucifix, large filigree among a few others. The supplier sent me the stamped version of the tear drop sunburst crucifix instead of the one with the separately attached Corpus, so I will be taking new pictures and adding that one as an option to the existing listing until the few of the old style are sold out. OK? I also have a new Fatima center with dirt from Fatima instead of water, a larger Miraculous medal and a new simple crucifix that will be added soon. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Keep checking back over the next week for the new additions.
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.
Since finding rosary centerpieces for certain saints can be difficult, I decided to take the plunge this year and have a couple made.
The 1st is of St. Dymphna. I’ve had more people requesting this one lately and the only other option I could find for her was a more expensive American made model. Unfortunately for some, the cost for those is just too high. My center is Italian silver plate. It features a lovely image of the Virgin Mary on the front and a photo of St Dymphna on the back. St Dymphna is most widely know for her patronage for those suffering from nervous and mental afflictions, but there is actually a long list of other causes she represents including sleepwalking, epilepsy, insanity, family happiness, incest victims, loss of parents, martyrs, mental asylums, mental health caregivers, mental health professionals, mental hospitals, neurological disorders, possessed people, princesses, rape victims and runaways.
The 2nd new centerpiece is of Saint Agatha. Again, it’s a less expensive option for those who can’t afford to spend a lot on a center. Any of my rosaries made using this centerpiece will have 50% of the proceeds donated to research. This Italian silver plate center features the same rose as my Immaculate Heart center with a photo of St Agatha on the back (patron of breast cancer). Click on the images to visit the store listing. 🙂 Discounts are available for both of these centers.
