Stretchy Rosary Bracelets

 I made a few stretchy rosary bracelets for a custom order.  These are 8mm beads and the finished size works best for a 6' or smaller wrist.  For larger sized Stretchy bracelets...10mm beads are needed for the extra length.

Queen of Angels Rosary ---Freshwater Pearl, Crystal and Bronze

I named this rosary Queen of Angels because of the beautiful angels that are detailed in the crucifix.  The ornate marian center reminds me of a heavenly throne.  The Freshwater pearls are in a natural state...some slightly irregular, which adds to their authentic charm.  They are paired with a smoky crystal and bronze to give an antique look.    Remember:  Pearl is the birthstone for June

Pink Crazy Lace Agate Rosary

Pink Crazy Lace Agate is a gemstone with many lovely variations, just like the Blue Crazy Lace.  Here I have paired it with a Darker Pink Crazy Lace for the Our Father Beads.

8mm Azurite Chrysocola Rosary

Azurite Chrysocola not only is a cool name...the beads do not disappoint.  Beautiful variations of greens mixed with turquoise make me think of the Carribean.  The black spotting that is intermixed in this bead, make it even more interesting.  Both women and men love these beads...they are another favorite of mine. 

In this rosary, I have used 8mm beads for the Hail Mary's and 10mm beads for the Our Fathers.  This is a substantial rosary.  The sturdy bronze center and crucifix pair with it quite nicely.

St Joseph Tenner

I have in stock several St Joseph medals for Fathers Day.  Here I paired it with a beautiful Woodgrain Crucifix...sturdy, like the 1' medal.  The woody look of the crucifix is befitting the carpenter.  This piece is a one decade rosary, called a 'Tenner' because of the 10 Hail Mary beads.
