Totally and completely made from scratch. Czech and Murano glass beads form a traditional five decade rosary for a special Christmas gift.
I really don’t see how people make handmade rosaries with individually linked beads and can then turn around and sell them for $10 or $15 (I can see it with corded rosaries and rosaries without links and chain segments, but these?! No way). Wow. Maybe I’m just still too slow and I’ll keep getting quicker as I make more? In any case, there are the types of beads you buy in packages of six at retail craft stores, so this is right out of the $10-$15 range based on materials alone. Maybe one day I’ll crack the mystery 🙂
