This fine Rosary is entirely wire wrapped, making it virtually unbreakable--a family heirloom to pass down the generations.

Genuine Pink Topaz in a new Rosary--coming soon to HeartFeltRosaries.com --

The latest addition to my 'Ultimates' line--gem quality Aquamarine and rich Sterling Silver with White Turquoise Paters in a wire-wrapped, unbreakable Rosary. Everything about this Rosary is the highest quality--and best work--I can offer, from the low-tarnish Argentium 925 Sterling Crucifix, medal and center (and wire) to the extravagantly double capped Paters. Each plump 8x6mm Aquamarine rondelle is also capped in solid sterling, for a strong silver presence against the clear, sparkling gemstones!
The Aquamarine itself is exceptional--the end of a small store I had on hand--icy blue, microfaceted for shine, clear and even in color. I obtained it some time back and saved it for a very special offering. There's just enough left over for a chaplet--that's it--so this is a one-of-a-kind, unique Rosary that will never be repeated!
The Aquamarine is stunning--clear, natural blue and microfaceted for sparkle. Each bead is capped (the Paters especially ornately)--and the Crucifix, Lourdes center and Blessed Virgin Mary medal were chosen to complement each other. And this Rosary is fully wire wrapped for a lifetime of use--guaranteed.
I'll try to finish it up this weekend for you. It's a bit more expensive than my typical sterling Rosaries, but I think you'll find it's worth it! Layaway available.

I've done several Rosaries recently in earthtones and am feeling the need for some lighter, more colorful Rosaries! Look for a Pearl Rosary--maybe black pearl with Ruby accents and LOTS of bright Sterling--and I have some fabulous Aquamarine to work with. There is also a strand of Pink Topaz waiting, and some fine Moonstone. Now that the custom orders are nearly done, I hope to list more in the store! Stay tuned...
The Crucifix is special--a small garnet is set at the bottom. This is from the old tradition of adding a small red stone as a drop of blood for a reminder. The red of the garnet blends beautifully with the rosy earthtones of the poppy jasper, as do the carnelian connectors and Paters!
Will be working on it this weekend, so look for another entry once I list it!
Warm, nuanced, natural Mother of Pearl pairs with genuine Sapphire in my newest Rosary, now listed at HeartFeltRosaries.com --
The Crucifix is particularly fine--heavy, beautifully detailed, with a memento mori/skull and crosssbones at the foot of the cross in the traditional style. I was pleased to find the original antique, and pleased again to see how beautifully it came out when cast in solid bronze and gently burnished to a fine patina. The Sapphire Paters add elegance and Mary's color. They are plump, melon shaped beads, hand carved in India, and each bead is slightly different and marvelously unique.
As with all my sturdy wire wrapped Rosaries, it is guaranteed against breakage for life--you'll be able to pass this down the generations!

We have a new member of the kitty clan--I've been adopted by a grey and butterscotch feral kitty, now named Smokey! She's an outdoor cat, and I'm excited to be getting her a nice insulated home and heated mat so she has a comfortable winter. Regular meals are helping her fill out and I'll get her spayed when she's a little tamer. Sure wish I could find her owner, but no luck. Doting on kitties sure helps me decompress from Hospice work...so wish me well as I add another jewel to my official Crazy Cat Lady crown!

My friend Patty has been blessed with a litter of kittens...one of her younger strays got preggers before she could be caught and neutered...and it gave me a chance to have kittens in the house again. The plan is to foster 2 kittens and find them homes--allowing me to have kittens for a bit without adding to the family permanently! And I do love kittens!! I've already named the two--Sir Purrsalot and Beata, and they'll move in when they're 6 wks old--but for now, they stay with their mommy and work on opening their eyes and growing up.

Emily Rose Tailkinker, still a kitten, discovered that if she is very clever and fast, she can dart out the front door when I lean out to get the mail. She did this without me noticing over the weekend--on a day the temperature was soaring over 100 degrees! Since the mailman had not come, I went back to check a couple hours later and saw a flash of black and white--Emily Rose, emerging from the shrubbery and looking very hot! She was glad to dart back inside and have a big drink and a lie on the cool tile! I offered a grateful prayer to God for sending me back to the mailbox and for protecting my dearly loved kitten. We are showered with blessings! God is good! And I keep an eagle eye on that kitty now!
Just listed at HeartFeltRosaries.com -- Rosy Poppy Jasper is always popular in the Rosaries I offer--and here it is again in an understated, rich bronze Rosary--
The Paters are larger, faceted Cafe-au-lait Mother of Pearl capped in textured bronze bead caps. The Crucifix and Miraculous Medal center are simple in design, cast from the original antiques by hand and retaining the well-loved appearance of the originals.
All are carefully and unbreakably wrapped in heavy gauge bronze wire to make this Rosary so sturdy you will hand it down the generations!
It's available now at HeartFeltRosaries.com! Visit today and see the rest of the collection while you're there!
Glorious Rainbow Moonstone, with blue and pink flash, and gem quality, teal blue Fluorite--all extravagantly capped in solid sterling! The Crucifix is flanked with two praying angels, and the center is a likewise substantial Archangel Michael. Both are hand cast in Low Tarnish 925 Sterling Silver, a newer formulation with a bit of germanium included to retard tarnish!
And, as always, the entire Rosary is hand wrapped in Low Tarnish 925 Sterling wire. Wire wrapping is a time consuming technique, and not seen in commercial Rosaries--but it makes for a handsome presentation (with it's swirling wire wraps) that is virtually unbreakable!
We just got our power back after a vicious summer storm last Friday. The kitteh's came through just fine--there was not much thunder to frighten them, just wind--though we all melted a bit in the relentless heat! But now all is back to normal and the kittehs are back sitting in the bay window, soaking up the sun. Emily Rose Tailkinker is--as usual--bouncing off the walls and tormenting her kitty family to play with her. The concept of quiet paws escapes her for now--maybe in a year or two lounging in the sun will seem more attractive to her, but there's still too much kitten in her for that now...they are a treat to watch as I wrap beads!
Rainbow Moonstone with some spectacular blue Fluorite in Sterling Silver! There are angels surrounding Christ, and another angel--Michael the Archangel--for the center.
The Moonstone is full of flash, both blue and pink; and the Fluorite is clear and striking. And, as usual, the wire wrapping makes this an unbreakable Rosary!
I'll blog again when it's ready to go!
