I have been making and selling rosaries online since 2002. I try to find the best quality semiprecious gemstones and freshwater cultured pearls available for the main beads and handmade sterling silver beads and caps from India, Hill Tribes in Thailand or Bali Indonesia, or handmade lampworked glass beads. I work with sterling silver wire and all sterling silver parts, findings and chain for my best quality rosaries using wire wrapped loop construction so that they don’t come apart. I also contribute to charities by donating rosaries to parish and diocesan silent auctions and raffles and Trinity bracelets to local charities such as the Humane Society and Habitat for Humanity. I also donate beads to nuns at 3 monasteries to help them continue the tradition of making rosaries for their gift shops.
