The First Rosary
I began making rosary beads several years ago when my sister, Erika, asked me to make her one in purple. She converted to Catholicism when she married a couple of decades ago.
I am not Catholic, and was not aware of anything other than the number of beads in a rosary and how it was assembled. I had been making beaded jewelry for a couple of years when she asked.
As we all have our "styles" as designers of beadwork/jewelry, I have found that my signature when making rosary beads is to use larger art beads as the "Our Father" beads. I like the way it looks and the difference can be felt easily by those who pray the rosary.
The first rosary I made is still one of my favorites.
