In addition to creating the custom Rosaries shown here, I'm a member of Our Lady's Rosary Makers and make Mission Rosaries, to send to international communities in need. I'm happy to do custom work. You can view previously sold Rosaries here, and contact me with your query.
My path towards beginning to create Rosaries has been gradual, I just had to become aware of the signs! After my Father's passing in 2008, I began to collect beads- with no clear use or purpose for them! My bead collection sat organized in boxes until the summer of 2019, when I returned to the Church and decided that I'd like to make my own Rosary. Out of that dusty box I pulled my bead trays, and set to work. After that first Rosary, I felt called to craft more, and to do repairs and custom work for my Parish.
The Rosary was a meaningful devotion to my Great Grandmother, especially during the thirteen years she raised my Grandfather as a "white widow" in Northeastern Italy. My Grandfather, baptized Dante Giuseppe Rosario, was born on the first day of the month of Our Lady of the Rosary. My Great Grandfather left for the United States in 1914, when my Grandfather was only four months old. The family wasn't reunited until 1927.
