On the Bead Board -- a special offer!

I'm working on this new Bronze Rosary--Cafe-au-lait Mother of Pearl and glorious Dragon Vein Agate--
The Mother of Pearl is full of character--swirls and golden tones, while the Agate is almost mosaic-like, with its intricate network of 'veins' enhancing the deep, rich autumnal colors. The Mother of Pearl is 8mm, making this a larger and more substantial Rosary that prays beautifully
I will be listing this Rosary at $239 this week, but for you blog followers, here's a deal--Purchase now and get it for $199.  It's one of a kind, so if it fits your style, buy now for a tasty bargain! Contact me by email at jchasse(at)rrohio(dot)com. Payment will be through Paypal or by MO, and, as always, you must be delighted--or return for full refund. Offer good till the Rosary lists in my shops on Friday!
All for now,

Warm Poppy Jasper and Golden Bronze in a New Heirloom Rosary!

Just off the bead board and listed in both shops:
 This is a Traditional sized, 6mm Rosary--the size of most commercial Rosaries. Each plump brown bead is wrapped in heavy gauge golden jeweler's brass, swirled in the wire for beauty and durability.
Give this charmer a good yank when you get it--it's that strong!
The Crucifix and center are repros of an antique, Art Deco style Crucifix from around 1920; the medal is one of my favorites--St Anthony with the child Jesus. On the back of the medal, in French: I am a Catholic; In case of a severe illness or accident, please call a Priest.
With the bronze Bali beads and touch of color of coppery Swarovski Crystal, this is an heirloom that you can use every day...great for pockets, purses, and other rough and tumble places!

SNOW!!! And lots of it! Here in mid Ohio we missed the brunt of the snowstorm, but it still looks like 3 or 4 inches are on the way. The wind blows the snow around and that fascinates Squeaker, who spent all morning watching from her nice, warm cat perch. We're stocked up on food and kibble, and the fireplace makes the workroom cozy...and the QUIET from the snow fall and the minimal traffic make for a lovely afternoon. Back to knitting, I's been on the back burner all week. Hope your weather is better!
All for now,

More African Jade!

Just listed--an extravagant 8mm Rosary in bronze--
It features my all time favorite Crucifix, now in an exquisite golden bronze! Sets off the green nicely. And the Paters are large, 10mm faceted Carnelian with it's warm, rusty tone.
It's listed in my Etsy Shop now--do stop and see! African Jade Rosary

It will list on Ebay this afternoon as well.
But in the meantime, I'm going back to my knitting. The sweater only gained 2 inches this weekend, but it's looking great! Time to start a sleeve!

Two New Rosaries!!

Just off the bead board--
Intense blue Lapis lazuli and pale Mother of Pearl for Our Lady!
Simple and in the classic style, it features a double sided Crucifix with wonderful detail, and just the tiniest amount of shine with crisp, blue Swarovski bicones flanking the substantial, 10mm Lapis Paters. The 8mm Aves make this Rosary comfortable and easy to  pray, even for large hands.  It's in the shop now! Click Here for Lapis/MOP Rosary
Also new--glorious, glowing Peach Moonstone!
This is great Moonstone--pictures don't capture the depth of tone or the glow--the color is a rich butterscotch with the faintest possible hint of pink--so much like a scrumptious, ripe peach! It's also in the shop: Click Here for Moonstone Rosary

In Other News:
On the bead board right now is an intricate necklace, a special order from a wonderful customer, made to match her Black Pearl and Sterling Rosary.  She asked for earrings and necklace to match, and I'm almost done--the necklace just needs a fancy clasp...

Entirely wire wrapped, with no soldering involved, the thicker wire is tediously wrapped with fine wire for a lovely, textured appearance. Shows off the pearls, I'm hoping!
