Cygnea Cantio Rosaries

I've been enjoying creating Rosaries for the last few months and have been inspired to begin sharing my artistry with the world. I'm inspired by a vintage style, bronze, and colorful, ornate glass beads. Each Rosary is one of a kind, and prayerfully assembled, as well as prayed with at least once during the weekly Parish Rosary at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Seneca, SC. The Rosaries are not blessed. I welcome the opportunity to do custom work, and I can also do repairs.

In addition to creating the custom Rosaries shown here, I've also recently joined Our Lady's Rosary Makers and begun to make Mission Rosaries, to send to communities in need.

My path towards beginning to create rosaries has been gradual, I just had to become aware of the signs! After my Father's tragic passing in 2008, I began to collect beads, and amassed a collection of thousands, of which I organized with dedication, but never fashioned a single item... until this past summer of 2009, when I returned to the church and decided that I'd like to make my own rosary. Suddenly, all of the beads began to make sense!  I believe that the Rosary was very meaningful devotion to my Great Grandmother and that she would have prayed the rosary often during the thirteen years she raised my Grandfather as a "white widow" in Northeastern Italy. My Grandfather, baptized Dante Giuseppe Rosario Calderan, 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.
