Linking up with my friends at Suscipio – It’s Show and Tell time! Like Tiffany, I have a hoard…every time I see interesting beads or stones, I immediately think of how they will look as a rosary! I give lots of them away, especially the bracelet rosaries, and have the ones I keep scattered all through my life. You know, one in the purse, several in the cars, one on the bed table, tucked in drawers.
This one is a favorite. Several years ago I scored a tremendous deal on rose quartz at a trunk show, and there were enough beads to make three pink rosaries. The other two reside with Princess Pea and her best friend, aka my Other Daughter. I think about the girls every time I pick it up.
One of my rosary bracelets…wore it to work today! The beads are amethyst, and the cross on it was a necklace that belonged to Cherry Ames when she was a little girl. She outgrew the tiny chain years ago, and it hung in my jewelry box for years until I repurposed it.
My RCIA sponsor gave this blue one to me when I came into full communion with the Church. It’s the one that I carry in my purse.
This is one I started for The Architect, but he requested a single decade that would fit in his pocket, so I reclaimed it. The beads are hematite, so even though they are small, this rosary has a nice weight and it feels nice and cool in my hands. (Note: I just realized…if you click the picture to open it and zoom in close, you can see the outline of me and the camera reflected in each bead! Hematite is such a fun gemstone!)
Pray the Rosary. Keep the Faith.

I love that you and your girls are connected through your pink rosaries. Isn’t this fun getting a peek at everyone’s rosaries!

I love the pink one and the one your RCIA sponsor gave you and…well, I love all of them!
How beautiful! You have a gift from God to make these! Very lovely
Oh my goodness Angela. First, I thought the pink were going to be my favorite. Then, I fell in love with the bracelet. But alas! The hematite beads are so beautiful. Is there a story to the Blessed Mother on them?
I have a new desire to begin again ~ praying the rosary that is. God bless.
Okay Angela…love the bracelet…did you say you had lots of spare time to whip up a few for purchase LOL? You have a gift, no doubt and I loved reading the stories under each one.
