I am trying to come up with my creative photo for it! I also have created a rosaries to inspire the team members for the Winter Contest this is not my contest entry but I hope it gives them some inspiration to the contest which is called A Visit with Jack Frost! A Snow and Ice contest!

So here is a harvest rosary that I had thought about using for my Fall Contest Entry but I use it to inspire my team members to create a pumpkin patch theme rosary or piece of jewelry or a bead listing.

Extra Extra Read All About It

I am so excited that I finally finished my line of birthstone color rosaries. When I started this project I wanted it avail so that buyers who want a rosary in their birth month color but do not have the money to purchase the actual stone. So thats what I did with this line that I created. Now I have to come up with some new line to work on in my free time when I am not working on school work.

Here is the run down of the rosaries in this line that I have take pictures of and have listed in my shop so far.

Sea Foam and Bubbles Rosary

I just finished a new rosary the other day for my team summer contest entry its called Sea Foam and Bubbles the contest is called Colors of the Sea..

This is a beautiful piece that I created out of sea foam colored glass beads for the ave maria beads and for the pater beads I used some gold and light blue glass beads that remind me of bubbles with golden rays of the sun shinning through them, The pater beads are accented with oval crackle light blue beads and the ave maria beads are accented with light blue seed beads.

The crucifix is silver as well as the center piece with is a image of the blessed virgin mother Mary in silver. I string all of my rosaries and chaplets on 45 mm strength beading wire and use double crimp beads.
