New items in Shop

Here is a Rosary set done with red stone beads.I love wearing them and making them. I also have a shorter set that I sell,I like to wear the two together they really look nice,I have gotten many comments when I wear them.I recently had someone who wants me to make a full length Rosary with violet swarovski crystals. I think I might have under charged, I've seen them on the web for well over 100.00 dollars. But I really enjoy making them. So half of it is joy the other half is making some one enjoy this beautiful necklace.

Daily 5

You meet so many wonderful people here at Etsy!! A few days ago I had someone buy one of my bracelets that I make with the rosary charms. Then I received a e-mail thru etsy from her son, that has to wear a medical bracelet, and was wondering if I can make him these hemp bracelets. Well of coarse I can. I replied. I made a few different colors as shown above. And to my surprise he buys them all!!! What a wonderful kid!! So I also included a few extras, a necklace and two more different style bracelets and a pair of earrings for his mom! That's just how I am. So If any one decides to order from me, You will be sure that I will include many, many surprises also. I know when I buy from etsy and when I get surprises I will be sure to re visit them again. I always say "what comes around goes around". All smiles!!!
