My daughter is Catholic and makes her First Holy Communion next month.

When I went to a couple of friends, who are also Catholic, to ask their opinion of the gift I plan to give her I was "hired" on the spot to make another for sale.

This is the result:






The recipient of the gift is Irish with a birthday in May, making green beads an easy choice.

The client is super-pleased and considering it's only my second rosary ever; so am I!

Cheesy

I absolutely ADORE this. My sister and I have been wanting to make our own rosary's for years. We were raised in a catholic family but we think rosary beads are beautiful.  You did a wonderful job, and 1 of my favorite colors is green so I'm even more biased.  Grin
