 A gathering of rosaries made of natural materials, woods, seeds, horn and antiqued bone As quickly as seeds travel in the wind  so did the Franciscans carry the Seed of God, his Word.

INSPIRED BY THE FRANCISCANS
When the great sea explorers left Italy for points West, Franciscans were on board taking holy bibles and sacramentals to the new world. We hope these rosaries reflect some of that old world period.

... in connection with all that is holy ...
  I have looked for my very own rosary for a long time and found immediately bonded to this one.....the beads, the colors, the feel in my hands, the delicacy and beauty ...  perfect ...  as a means to convey my passion to live each moment in connection with all that is holy.  Thank you very very much.
Love and blessings, Margaret G  (WA)

... I was at the point of
just stringing up a set of beads ...
  I tend to use my rosary and carry it around all the time and the typical fifty dollar versions available everywhere don't hold up. The chain breaks over and over and I have been quite frustrated. I was at the point of just stringing up a set of beads on a cord when I remembered seeing your web site, and thought that your rosaries might be better made.They are, and so beautiful.  Peace be with you always,  Lindsey S  (USA)

... discovering a cherished friend ...
The Anglican prayer beads arrived yesterday,and they are splendid!  You so carefully helped me in designing the set that when I opened the package, it was like discovering a cherished friend.  Many thanks to the Guild for their talents, work and patience. David S  (MD)
