Kodee~Mixed a Purple Czech Glass

Kodee has come into the Church and had the privilege of receiving the first four sacraments: Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation. 
Her special keepsake rosary is made with mixed purple Czech pressed glass beads for the Aves, and pewter roses for the Paters.
Each Ave is spaced with three beads, representing the Most Holy Trinity.
On either side of the Pater are seven beads, representing the seven sacraments. The first four are Swarovski crystals in different shades of pink and purple to represent the sacraments she is receiving. The other three pink seed beads represent the sacraments yet to be received.
The centerpiece is a chalice surrounded by angels. 
A St. John Paul II medal hangs with the fancy crucifix.
Congratulations, Kodee!

Zoe ~ 1st Holy Communion


Zoe’s 1st Holy Communion Rosary is just beautiful!  The Aves are 6mm frosted glass purple beads with clear glass Czech seed beads as the spacers.  The Paters are faceted glass beads with a rose inlay. These unique beads are surrounded by Swarovski crystals.  The chalice centerpiece is antique silver and the fancy crucifix is oxidized metal.  All letters and numbers are rhodium plated pewter.  The connections are double crimped for durability.  Congratulations, Zoe!!

Our Lady of Guadalupe and Colorful Miracle Beads


We are really loving our new colorful “Our Lady of Guadalupe” centerpieces.  The bright miracle beads coordinate so nicely and have been a lot of fun to work with.  How perfect that the “miracle” bead goes with Our Lady of Guadalupe! If you would like a rosary like this let me know and I’ll be happy to work with you to put one together 🙂  e-mail: throughthegrapevine@live.com
