Welcome to Gardenias4Lina.
We are rosary artisans creating one-of-a-kind, limited edition and custom rosaries and chaplets.
We have been creating and selling our rosaries on this site for nearly ten years. Our page of customers’ testimonies is evidence of the quality and artistry of our work. A high percentage of our customers are people who collect rosaries and continue to return to us, as well as people who purchase them as gifts. For this we are very grateful.
We would like you to feel comfortable with us. For this reason, we have included a page titled “Meet Us” which tells you about us and how we came to be. We also have included a page explaining the work, symbolism and spirituality behind each rosary. What we feel makes us unique is that our rosaries are focused. You can read about this on our

In this labor of love Marilyn Nash has brought together the works of master painters, quotations from the great saints and her own prayerful reflections to make the praying of the rosary a truly joyful experience. As an artist and rosary artisan, her many years of designing and praying her own beautiful rosaries now combine to transport the reader into these scenes of holiness and awe. Focusing upon master artists paintings, the reader is transported to the time and place of each mystery of the rosary. Quotes by the great saints which relate to each mystery, give much to contemplate. In addition, her own prayerful reflections are written as conversations with Mary giving the reader a sense of her presence. Her own love of Mary has obviously shaped this visually beautiful, inspiring and insightful work.

Prayer To Our Lady of the Rosary
O Virgin Mary, grant that the recitation of thy Rosary may be for me each day, in the midst of my manifold duties, a bond of unity in my actions, a tribute of filial piety, a sweet refreshment, an encouragement to walk joyfully along the path of duty. Grant, above all, O Virgin Mary, that the study of thy fifteen mysteries may form in my soul, little by little, a luminous atmosphere, pure, strengthening, and fragrant, which may penetrate my understanding, my will, my heart, my memory, my imagination, my whole being. So shall I acquire the habit of praying while I work, without the aid of formal prayers, by interior acts of admiration and of supplication, or by aspirations of love. I ask this of thee, O Queen of the Holy Rosary, through Saint Dominic, thy son of predilection, the renowned preacher of thy mysteries, and the faithful imitator of thy virtues. Amen.
October is the month devoted to the Rosary
