New rosaries

I have many really great rosaries available- 15 and 20 decade and a hard to find hand-crafted Miraculous Medal bead rosary. Several auctions are also charity for the Red Cross! Don't miss out, the link is the banner at the bottom of this page. God bless!
Father Pavone recently announced a nine-week “Novena of Prayer” starting tomorrow September 1, to prepare for our national elections. The Novena will finish on Monday, November 3, the day before Election Day.

Fr. Pavone put it this way: “The intentions of this prayer are that citizens participate in an active and informed way in the elections, and that their voting choices are wise. Wisdom means that we see things from God’s perspective, put first things first, and discern what’s important and what’s not. One of the practical effects of such wisdom is that we realize that when the state fails to protect the right to life, it ceases to be a true democracy and instead becomes a tyrant state.”

Here are the Novena prayers:
“O God, we acknowledge you today as Lord, not only of individuals, but of nations and governments. We thank you for the privilege of being able to organize ourselves politically and of knowing that political loyalty does not have to mean disloyalty to you.

We thank you for your law, which our Founding Fathers acknowledged and recognized as higher than any human law. We thank you for the opportunity that this election year puts before us, to exercise our solemn duty not only to vote, but to influence countless others to vote, and to vote correctly.

Lord, we pray that your people may be awakened. Let them realize that while politics is not their salvation, their response to you requires that they be politically active.

Awaken your people to know that they are not called to be a sect fleeing the world but rather a community of faith renewing the world.

Awaken them that the same hands lifted up to you in prayer are the hands that pull the lever in the voting booth; that the same eyes that read your Word are the eyes that read the names on the ballot, and that they do not cease to be Christians when they enter the voting booth.

Awaken your people to a commitment to justice to the sanctity of marriage and the family, to the dignity of each individual human life, and to the truth that human rights begin when human lives begin, and not one moment later. Lord, we rejoice today that we are citizens of your kingdom.

May that make us all the more committed to being faithful citizens on earth. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”


Oh Dios, hoy te reconocemos como Señor, no sólo de los individuos, sino también de las naciones y de los gobiernos. Te damos gracias por el privilegio de poder organizarnos políticamente y por reconocer que la lealtad política no significa que seamos desleales a ti.
Te damos gracias por tu ley, la cual fue aceptada por los Padres de la Patria y reconocida como superior a cualquier ley humana. Te damos las gracias por la oportunidad que este año de elecciones pone ante nosotros, de ejercer el deber solemne no sólo de votar, sino de influenciar a un sinnúmero de personas para que voten, y para que voten correctamente.
Señor, pedimos que tu pueblo despierte. Haz que se den cuenta de que aunque en la política no está su salvación, su respuesta a ti requiere que sean políticamente activos.

Alerta a tu pueblo para que sepa que no están llamados a ser una secta que huye del mundo, sino una comunidad de fe que renueva al mundo.

Hazles ver que las mismas manos que se elevan a ti en oración son las que halan la palanca en las urnas electorales al votar; que los mismos ojos que leen tu Palabra son los ojos que leen los nombres en la boletas electorales, y que no dejan de ser cristianos al entrar a votar en las urnas.

Dispón a tu pueblo a comprometerse con la justicia con la santidad del matrimonio y con la familia, con la dignidad de cada vida humana, y con la verdad de que los derechos humanos comienzan cuando comienza la vida humana, ni un minuto más tarde.
Señor, nos alegramos hoy de ser ciudadanos de tu reino. Que esto nos haga ser los más comprometidos
En ser ciudadanos fieles en la tierra. Te lo pedimos por Cristo nuestro Señor. Amén.”

I'm just made several nice rosaries, some are now Red Cross charity auctions, more on that soon. Praying for those in Gustav's way.

more about me and rosary making

I first learned to make rosaries during the first Gulf War in 1991, I made chain rosaries to send to the soldiers overseas.

I now make chain rosaries, cord rosaries and sacrifice beads, and occasionally wire wrap rosaries.
I also offer habit rosaries, Franciscan Crown 7 decade, 6, 15, and 20 decade rosaries. I make all kinds of chaplets,
one decade pocket and car rosaries, and Irish Penal style rosaries.
I even hand paint medals as you can see here. (This is available in my eBay store)
Your special occasion calls for a special custom creation handcrafted just for you. I've been selling on eBay for over 6 years so I know how to make customers happy. Looking forward to serving you and enriching your prayer life!

I have offered pro-life rosaries for years, to me this is one of the most important prayers we can make these days leading up to the election. I can make 5 decade in chain or strung as well as coil bracelets. I once had a custom order for 10 of the bracelets. To see what I have available, click the banner at the bottom of the page. Custom orders are welcome as always.

New wedding rosary set

This is a nice set of rosaries for a bride and groom, volcanic jasper for the groom and ecru glass pearls with volcanic jasper accents for the bride, added display box.
This is one of a kind, but I can make similar custom orders.

Welcome to my blog! I expect to become an eBay PowerSeller soon, so I thought this would be the best place to keep everyone up-to-date. I'm a pro-life Catholic Mom who prays the rosary every day for my family and the world. My apostolate is to make affordable rosaries and chaplets so more people can pray and have quality items to pray with. My latest project, which should be finished this week, is my first e-book about the Sacred Heart devotion and prayers for these troubling times drawn from Church approved sources.
