Catholic wooden rosaries…

Olive wood is very hard, making it ideal for durable rosaries.  I find each bead to be beautiful in its own way with the contrasting light and dark wood grain.  When making rosaries, I hand select each bead for a cohesive, artistic look.  Check out the latest additions to my wooden rosary selection.

October is the month of the Rosary!

October is a special month for me and it is also the month of the rosary.  The rosary has a special place in my heart and I am blessed to share the work of my hands with others.  I have been busy creating new rosaries for my Etsy shop.  Below are just a few of my new favorites!  To see all of my rosaries, click this link.

Metal crucifix rosaries…

Metal crucifix rosaries are now available!  It took time to find a supplier of metal crucifixes, but I finally found one that complements the natural olive wood beads.  Both crucifixes were made in Italy and have Jerusalem engraved on the back of the crucifix.  Such lovely additions to my olive wood rosary selection.  As always, rosaries come with a muslin pouch with free shipping in the U.S.

Unique & Traditional Wooden Rosaries

Looking for a unique or traditional Catholic rosary?  These handmade rosaries have a bit of a ‘Franciscan’ look to them.  The beautiful rosary on the left has detailed weaving of the brown cord around and through the 6mm olive wood beads.  This creates a strong and durable rosary with the knotted cord.  As for the rosary on the right, it was traditionally made with spaces to move each bead when praying.  Very simple yet elegant with the marbled wood beads.  Both rosaries have the Jerusalem wooden cross which enhances the natural and rustic look.  They measure approximately 12″ in length, putting them on the small side for rosaries.  My rosaries come with a 3″x4″ muslin pouch along with instructions on how to pray the rosary.

There is something about the simplicity of olive wood rosaries that takes you back in time!  For more details, click on each photo to take you to my Etsy listings or check out my entire rosary section.

Traditional Olive Wood Rosaries…

This five decade rosary is made with 8mm olive wood beads and an olive wood cross.  Two brown nylon cords are strung in between each bead, resulting in durable and strong construction with tight barrel knots.  What I love about this rosary is that there is space to move the Hail Mary beads.  Feels substantial in the hand with the smooth and polished olive wood beads and cross.  Each 15 3/4″ rosary is packaged in a clear plastic sleeve with rosary instructions and a 3″x4″ muslin pouch.  This rosary makes a great gift for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and for those grieving loss.  Free shipping in the U.S.
