|Hand Crafted Amethyst and Hematite St. Benedict Rosary|
This year, my friend Mary encouraged me to offer them for sale on my website. I must say that I never expected them to be so well received. After all, I'm not a "professional" rosary maker. But I've had quite a few people remark on how much they enjoy my rosaries, especially the weight of the beads (I use hand made Czech glass beads and semi-precious stones) when praying with them. Several people ordered them to give as presents since they are heirloom-quailty.
I also received feedback from customers who want a rosary but prefer something less expensive, mainly to have in their car or purse, or as a present for a little one who might not yet appreciate a more expensive rosary.

All of these situations came together as encouragement, and I'm pleased to announce my rosary shop on Etsy: Silver Hill Treasures, as well as more offerings on the Rosary page on the website. So where is this going? Honestly, I'm not sure. Much like my veil shop, I am taking it one day at a time, trusting that Our Lady has plans for my humble endeavor and I am merely her instrument. Sometimes I wish she didn't trust me with so much, but I can't tell her no. So yes, I tend to overextend myself (and it's my husband who reels me in) - but I'm so in love with our faith that I want to share it with everyone!
