Marilyn, 
The rosaries arrived and they're just beautiful. My children can't wait to give them to their grandparents; for me, it's a real highlight of the whole celebration. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and working with me to create such a wonderful and lasting gift. I'll certainly recommend you to others, as the need arises. And, of course, if I have a need, I'll be sure to call on you. 
Thank you, again. 
Renee 

Hi Marilyn
 I really couldn't be more pleased. The Cana Rosary is something that I ordered because Mary has impressed that particular mystery on my heart lately. I was thinking of giving it as a wedding gift, but as of yet I do not even have anyone to give it to..........  I will definately be recommending your site to all of my friends and anyone else who will listen. 
God Bless, 
Malia

Thank you, Marilyn. And I hope you know what a blessing your rosaries are. I appreciate, collect, and love praying with beautiful rosaries--and yours are some of the finest I have found. I really appreciate, also, the thoughtfulness of design and the explanatory and inspirational cards you include with each one. The Rosary is so rich and wonderful already, and your designs add another layer of depth to the experience of praying with them. 
Peace and blessings, 
Cynthia

Dear Marilyn
 I just wanted you to know I changed my mind about sending
back the rosary for you to remake into a 7 sorrows chaplet. I prayed
with the rosary you sent me and just love it sooooo much I don't want it
changed at all! I love it just the way it is!! It's gorgeous and so beautiful to meditate with. 

Hi Marilyn, 
I had my 1st rosary I bought from you blest yesterday by our priest here at our parish.
 He remarked on how beautiful the rosary was!  Thought you would like to know. Thank you again and God Bless you & your husband in this anoited ministry God has
bestowed upon you! 
To Jesus through Mary,

Dear Marilyn, 
Firstly I must introduce myself – my name is Sandra  and I live in Western Australia. 
Recently I got my Son  to order me some Sacred Heart Rosary Beads asking you to send them to his Chambers in Perth. The purpose of my Email is to say that they arrived safely several weeks ago and I want to thank you most sincerely for your prompt delivery. They are absolutely beautiful and the way that they are packaged is fantastic. 
You have been gifted with a wonderful talent and you use it in such a beautiful way for the Honour and Glory of God and His Blessed Mother. 
Sincerely, 
Sandra 

Dear Marilyn, 
You are an angel! The Servite rosary arrived today -- enough time for me to have it blessed by a priest who is one of Troy's best friends. I am so excited about attending the ordination on Saturday. I have never experienced one before. 
Troy and I have been close friends from the time he became a seminarian. He kept in constant contact with me through e-mail and phone calls from Oregon where his studies began to Leuven, Belgium where he has spent the last four years of formation. His was a later vocation call, and he will be 41 later this month. But with maturity, a brilliant mind and deep spirituality he will surely be an exceptional priest. 
Thank you so very much for your kindness and understanding, and the greatest customer service ever. 
May God richly bless you in your ministry. 
Marie

I want to thank you whole heartedly for the wonderful rosary you made for me. It is so much more than I expected and made all the better because it was made with such care and faith. 
May God bless you and your husband for your work this day and always.
Prayers and blessings,
F. Laverty.

Hi Marilyn, 
The rosaries arrived yesterday. Thank you for the speedy delivery service. 
All of the rosaries are truly beautiful. I especially loved the St. Joseph and the Holy Family rosary with the mix of dappled brown Aves and black Paters. And the beads used for Flight into Egypt are a striking combination. 
Thank you again for your wonderful ministry and your excellent workmanship and design sensibility. May God continue to bless you and your ministry.

Hi Marilyn, 
I received the beautiful Saint Michael chaplet this morning, I wanted to thank you for the excellent service, the meticulous way in which you wrapped the chaplet for shipping; 
I am amazed with the quality and the beauty and will not hesitate in the future to recommend you to my family and friends.. 
Thank you kindly and may God continue to bless you, 
Carmen I

Good Morning Marilyn, 
I received my lovely Rosary Monday and the exquisite beauty, love, and care you took to create such a work of magnanimous care, has just really uplifted my spirits and made me a very happy man. Your packaging was very well intact and I just could not have asked for anything better. My breath was literally taken away and I am looking for a special priest to bless her and I can not wait to begin my devoted prayer time to our Lady. 
Marilyn, you and your husband are two beautiful people!!! My lovely wife may be looking for her special rosary as well. 
Thank you so very much and just know you have made two very special friends who love you both. 
God Bless You!

Marilyn, 
 I have reordered another 7 sorrows Chaplet through paypal this evening. We received our other rosaries today and they are more beautiful than the picture! Thank you for your beautiful rosary and service. 
Karen Caryl

I received the rosary and chaplet today, and I just had to write to you and tell you how much I LOVE them. They are even more exquisite than in the photos. I am going to make another order for the Divine Mercy Chaplet/Rosary. 
Anita

Dear Gardenias, 
"Our Lady of Guadalupe" and "Jesus Remember Me" Rosaries are absolutely exquisite! Just as the others I've ordered from you in the past. I'll be showing these around "Our Lady of the Angels SSPX Roman Catholic Church" where my husband and I are fortunate to attend the Traditional Latin Mass. 
Thank You again, and wishing your families a beautiful Christmas and Happy New Year.

Dear Marilyn,
I received the Anima Christi rosary yesterday. It is far more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I am sure that when I pray on this rosary during the upcoming Lenten season, the vibrant blood red beads, the Sacred Heart of Jesus center and the beautiful and unique Crown of Thorns crucifix will help me to mediate on and enter more deeply into Christ's Passion and death. 
May God Bless the ministry you and your husband have been called to. It is truly a gift from God. I feel blessed to have come upon your website and will definitely purchase from you again. 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph...

Marilyn, 
Just had to e-mail you to thank you for my BEAUTIFUL rosary. I was so excited to get it earlier this week when I went to the post office to get the mail that was being held while we were away. I can't wait to show my friends. It is more than I expected. 
Sincerely, 
Nicol 

Dear Marilyn & Melvin, 
I just came home from Adoration on first Friday and am full of the joy of the Lord and so thankful for faithful servants like the two of you! 
When the Rosary for the Chaplet for the Dead arrived, my computer was down. But I want to take a moment now to thank you so much for such a beautiful Chaplet and decade rosary. The gold crucifix on the Chaplet is just lovely with the soft green beads. I prayed it today for some people special to me. I keep the decade rosary next to my bed to pray with when I wake in the night. The large Miraculous Medal of Mary with 4 medal cross is just perfect to hold in the dark. And I enjoy looking at it through the day, too! Is it St. Christopher on the right beam of the cross? I believe it's St. Joseph on the left? Every once in a while I'll grab it and pray a decade. 
Your generous hearts are a beautiful witness to our loving God and Father and our Blessed Mother who cares for us all. 
May Bless you and Keep you all your days, 
Cynthia

 I visit other sites, but keep coming back to you to buy my rosaries. They are so prayerfully thought out. Thank You!

Dear Marilyn 
Firstly I must apologize for not writing as soon as the most beautiful Rosary Beads I have ever seen arrived so beautifully presented. I give thanks for all your beautiful, intricate and exquisite beads that you make with so much love and care. I send you God’s blessings for all you do for his mother and may He always grant you the gift to create these beautiful Rosary beads so they may be spread throughout the world. May Our Blessed Mother never let go of your hand.

I wanted to let you know that I received the Servite Rosary in today's mail. It is incredibly beautiful! I sat down to open the box along side my husband, and we both sat there in stunned silence. How you were able to capture what my mind could not conceive is beyond my understanding. I cannot wait to present it to Dan. I know it was crafted by the Blessed Mother, My Mother, but it was through your openness to her, and your giving of your talent to bring a deeper devotion to our Lord that it was brought to realization. I know it will be incredibly meaningful and personal to Dan. I look forward to working with you again. 
Blessings! 
Nancy

Hand Crafted "One of a Kind",  Limited Edition 
and Custom Rosaries and Chaplets
Creating rosaries is, for us, is a joyful labor. It is a calling to which we responded, "Yes," over ten years ago.  
Much time, love and prayer goes into each item before it is placed on a web page for sale.  Our goal is to offer you an artful rosary which will become an important part of your prayer life. Often, we are blessed to receive letters from people who have purchased our rosaries. We so appreciate these testimonies and would like to share a few. We sincerely thank everyone who has purchased a rosary or chaplet from us. 
Mostly, we thank God for bringing you to us.




I am blown away by the beautiful divine mercy rosary I ordered from you. It is big, substantial, elegantly presented in the box and beautiful satin zip case. I certainly will keep you in mind for any other rosary I may like. 
Thank you… 
Sincerely; Cinda 

I received my Servite Rosary today - it is beautiful. I also appreciated the lovely way it was packaged and wrapped. I am particularly grateful for the booklet you enclosed, explaining the Seven Sorrows Rosary. I expected just a little paper pamphlet and am very pleased with the durable booklet with your beautiful artwork. It will be a pleasure to pray with both the rosary and the booklet. 
Thank you for your ministry and service. 
Sincerely,
Laura 


I received the rosaries yesterday and was overwhelmed with the beauty of your creations. The photos on your web site don't begin to reflect the color, design, and workmanship of the actual rosary. You've received a wonderful gift from God to guide us in our devotion to Christ and Mary. Thank you. 
Of the rosaries that I ordered, I intended a few for myself and others as gifts for family and friends. So I was even more impressed to see how you presented your rosaries in a beautiful silk pouch and boxed ready for gifting. How pleased I was with your sense of style. I was further pleased to find a printed copy of the description and reflection behind the creation of these rosaries. I intended to print them from your site and found that you anticipated my need. Speaking of these reflections, I found that you offered a deep insight into scripture and our Catholic heritage; these invite a corresponding reflection on my part as I meditate on the mysteries. I also appreciate the many wonderful selections at the $70 price point; this helps alot. 
I plan to return soon to your site for other rosaries for myself and for gifts. As I pray these rosaries for the first time, I'll offer my intentions to Mary and her Son for your fruitful ministry. 
Henry 



I have been browsing your web site and rosary catalog, and would like to tell you that it is beautiful, prayerful, and meaningful beyond words. Browsing is like praying. Thank you for creating such beauty! 
Thank you for sharing your faith and love in your products and overall presentation! 
Terry




My lovely 7 Sorrows Rosary arrived on Monday and it is not only beautiful to look at but it is also so nice to use. 
Thank you once again for your patience and encouragement as we worked out the details. 
The presentation box, booklet, and silk blue rose bag are lovely touches of thoughtfulness too. 
God Bless You and your work! 
Peace, Love and Harmony, 
Beverly

What a phenomenal rosary! When Brian saw it he even commented on its beauty. You're definitely talented! 
 Thank you ever so much for bringing Our Lady's favorite prayers to us Catholics. 
God Bless day after day. 








Comments and Testimonies from Our Happy Customers
The rosary arrived today and it is breathtaking and far exceeds my expectations. Thank you for your great work and fast service. The accompanying booklet about the rosary and Our Lady of Perpetual Help is a great bonus and helpful to have around. This rosary is particularly special to me since my birthday is June 27 and that is the day of commemoration for Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The silk case is a great addition and style, too, as many rosary cases are not very attractive. You are right when you say the Pater beads pull this design together as they are stunning and more attractive than any others I've seen. You really got this perfect!

I'll watch your web site for new designs from time to time. I seem to be collecting rosaries, but intend to use them all for prayer as well as for visual enjoyment. Thank you for creating them prayerfully and with the blessed intentions you send with them.

Sincerely,
Davis


Dear Marilyn! 
I received my Priest Rosary yesterday and couldn't be happier! It is even more beautiful than its picture. The light catches the black onyx in just the way that Christ shines through our priests in the midst of the darkness of the world. The 2 vintage black and crystal collars tucked between the white marbles of the "priestly collar" each shine like the 7 capital virtues and the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit as we pray for sanctity and purity for our priests! (There appear to be 7 little crystal 'mirrors' on each vintage collar.) The Pardon Crucifix carries such a rich history and beautifully brings to mind thanksgiving for the priesthood for bringing us all the sacraments: the much needed Sacrament of Reconciliation illustrated by this Crucifix, and the French Eucharist Lace Medal lifts our souls in praise of our precious Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament (which we wouldn't have present with us without a priest to consecrate it) . The Crucifix also reminds us of the tremendous burden that each priest must carry in joining Christ in His work of redemption; in daily dying to self for us, the Church. 
I can see the touch of the Holy Spirit in this beautiful Rosary and am inspired to spend time daily in using it to plead with our Lord and our Lady to give our priests a deep faith, a bright and firm hope and a burning love for God and his people that will increase in the course of their priestly lives. They are in such need of our prayers! 
I purchased a Seven Sorrows Chaplet today and look forward to praying with it as well... 
Thank You again. You work is truly inspired by God and very much appreciated! 
Cynthia 
Marilyn, 
IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Bless you. I will treasure this always. 
Thank you, 
Shannon

Hi Marilyn, 
I really couldn't be more pleased. The Star of the Sea is my new personal rosary and it is so beautiful that I long to pray even more. The Servite rosary has the effect of drawing my soul to tears as I do my best to comfort Our Lady in her sorrows. I will definitely be recommending your site to all of my friends and anyone else who will listen. 
God Bless, 
Malia
