Back to Work

After getting classes figured out, realizing how much homework I have, and learning to integrate my time in a way much different from Novitiate, I’ve gone back to work at making rosaries. As seen from my previous rosary, the workshop has changed, but I’m still working on a crowded desk.

These are the beads I’m using for a Capuchin rosary. These are olive wood; a nice look for a very simple looking rosary.

Sorry for the bad quality. My Blackberry doesn’t take great night pictures. I’ll remember that in the future.

Not Just Habit Rosaries

 

Just so you don’t think I only make habit rosaries, this is a rosary I made for someone last month. I used black onyx for the beads which gives the rosary a shinier look than wood.

I found it interesting that these regular rosaries were tougher for me to make than the large, habit rosaries. The biggest thing is the wire work. Usually I have plenty of space to bend and attach wire, but these smaller rosaries showed me that there’s a lot of work that goes into a regular rosary

Here’s how it looks up close:
