Rosy Poppy Jasper in a New Rosary!

Just listed-- --
Look carefully at the Crucifix--there is a small, perfect Garnet.  It brings back the old tradition of including a red 'drop of blood' at the foot of the Cross!
The Poppy Jasper is a lovely mix of tones from brick red to deep mahogany and has a warm, enticing appearance.  The red tones are enhanced by the handmade Carnelian Paters and delightful, small connectors.
The center is Our Lady of Sallette, and the medal is of the Assumption.
Available now at -- stop by for a visit!

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...

On the Bead Board--Warm Poppy Jasper!

In progress today at
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!

Just Listed--Cafe au Lait MOP and Sapphire Rosary

Warm, nuanced, natural Mother of Pearl pairs with genuine Sapphire in my newest Rosary, now listed at --
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!

Fall is definitely here in the midwest, and the nights are chilly.  My feral cat, Smokey, turned up this afternoon after several days' absence. She chowed down, but still has not shown any interest in the insulated Cozy Cat Cottage I got her for the winter.  C'mon, kitty--it has a heated floor and everything! Ah well--maybe a sprinkling of catnip will entice her in--we'll see soon...
