This is my new Blood & Tears Infinity Rosary. The clear Aves represent tears and the red drops represent blood. It is not only symbolic of the precious blood and tears shed by Christ and those who watched him suffer, but also a symbol of the pain and suffering many people around the world live with every day. This rosary was created to be a symbol of encouragement and motivation so that we may have the strength to carry our own personal crosses with the same grace and dignity Jesus modeled for us. It is also a reminder to try and offer up our burdens for the benefit of others while keeping in mind the idea of an everlasting life (infinity cross) of happiness and peace with Christ free from earthly pain and suffering. Come by and check it out!!
To those of you who know me, you know that every once in a while I put items on clearance that are either discontinued or that I will no longer carry. We’ll, it’s that time again! 🙂 Here is a list of the current items that I am clearing out to make room for other inventory. Once they are gone, there will be no more, but as in the past, if there are items that you use regularly I should still be able to request a special order for you, but the purchase will have to be in mass. OK? As always if you have questions, please let me know.
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.
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.

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.
Introducing my new Speziale Special Intention rosary! The rosary pictured below is the first in the line and was made using a mix of Impression Stone (Aqua Terra Jasper) and faceted clear quartz. I wrote and designed this new rosary as an answer to all the stress, fear, and burdens that we seem to be carrying around with us these days.

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!!!
