If you'd like to buy one of my rosaries or if you'd like me to make you a custom rosary, you're in the right place. I'm honored to know that you're thinking about including my handiwork in your prayer needs. But, I need to explain how this works.
The first thing to know is that while I do have a passion for making and repairing rosaries, I do not necessarily have a passion for running an online store. So, my process is a little different than others.
To order a custom-made rosary, just tell me what you want, and I'll make it for you. There are just a couple of caveats:
You need to choose the following parts:
I mostly use sterling silver plated chain. It's a good strong chain and it looks incredible. I also use mostly 8mm beads, but we can talk about other sizes.
If you need ideas, consider looking through the rosaries that I've made. Each rosary image includes an explanation about the materials as well as how it came to be. This will give you a good idea of the possibilities. If you see something you really like, I could just make one for you exactly like one I've already done. Or you might want to mix and match parts from various rosaries that I've done. Or you may want to shop around and choose your own unique parts. I purchase my supplies mostly from eBay and Etsy, and sometimes Walmart; I only mention those as a guide. I'm game for using parts from most any vendor.
You'll also have to figure out your budget. If you want a sterling silver crucifix and centerpiece (which are great for a special gift), be prepared to spend over $100. On the other hand, I've also made rosaries with a total cost under $10.
So, do a little shopping and browsing, then send me an email with your thoughts. We can then just setup a phone call so that we can talk it through together. I'll offer some suggestions and we'll figure it all out from there. If you and I already know each other, feel free to give me a call, send me a text message, or hit me up after Mass.
You'll cover my cost for the parts. Then all I ask is that you make a donation to the Catholic school scholarship fund where I direct all monies from this vocation. There is no profit for me.
So, just to be sure we're clear, this is not a simple sale of an item. I'm really only charging you my actual out-of-pocket cost for the rosary parts. Then I ask that you please make a donation to the Catholic school scholarship fund in any amount that you feel is appropriate. This donation is completely between you and them, I'm not in the middle of it, nor do I need to know the amount.
