This Rosary is made with Czech pressed beads that feature a floral design. The construction is flex-wire style. The Centerpiece of the Rosary is Saint Rita and the Crucifix is a ornate filigree traditional style.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

A story is told that near the end of her life, Rita was bedridden at the convent. A cousin visited her and asked her if she desired anything from her old home. Rita responded by asking for a rose from the garden. It was January and her cousin did not expect to find anything due to the weather. However, when her relative went to the house, a single blooming rose was found in the garden and her cousin brought the rose and fig back to Rita at the convent.[4] St. Rita is often depicted holding roses or with roses nearby. On her feast day, churches and shrines of St. Rita provide roses to the congregations that are blessed by the priest during Mass.

As a result of the story above, I chose to use Czech Pressed Flower Lavender with an AB finish.

Materials Used

Czech Pressed Beads in Lavender and AB finish. Ornate Filigree Crucifix. Glass Seed Bead Spacers in purple and clear.

More Info

Often I touch beads and just see an image of what the finished rosary will look like, such was the case with these beads. The beads seemed perfect for a rosary to honor Saint Rita.

Saint Rita of Cascia was an Italian Augustinian nun, widow and saint venerated in the Roman Catholic Church. Rita was married at an early age. Rita of Cascia was a wife, mother, widow and member of a religious community. Her holiness was reflected in each phase of her life.

Born at Roccaporena in central Italy, Rita wanted to become a nun but was pressured at a young age into marrying a harsh and cruel man. During her 18-year marriage, she bore and raised two sons. After her husband was killed in a brawl and her sons had died, Rita tried to join the Augustinian nuns in Cascia. Unsuccessful at first because she was a widow, Rita eventually succeeded.

Over the years, her austerity, prayerfulness and charity became legendary. When she developed wounds on her forehead, people quickly associated them with the wounds from Christ's crown of thorns. She meditated frequently on Christ's passion. Her care for the sick nuns was especially loving. She also counseled lay people who came to her monastery.

Beatified in 1626, Rita was not canonized until 1900. She has acquired the reputation, together with St. Jude, as a saint of impossible cases. Many people visit her tomb each year.

ONE OF A KIND:
Many of my items are one of a kind (OOAK). All OOAK items are labeled as such. Other items may be a limited edition or an open stock.


CUSTOM ORDERS:
I design 'custom kreations' (jewelry and rosaries) for special events. It is very meaningful to know the person who is going to received the item and to keep that person in mind during the design and creation of the item.

In addition to the standard rosaries for First Communion and Confirmation, I create custom First Communion and Confirmation designs for individual children and adults.

Rosaries make an excellent present for weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays. Given the interests and preferred colors & stones of an individual, a custom rosary can be created that speaks to the receiver of the gift.

Brides often wish to have custom jewelry for themselves. Additionally, the bride may wish to have matching jewelry for the bride's maids. I will discount multiple purchases of the same design.

If you don't see what you want in my studio -- just contact me. I am happy to design special pieces with you and for you. I love to create UNIQUE CUSTOM KREATIONS!

Just beautiful. Came just when I needed the symbol of Christ and hope the most. Ordering one for my mother now, too. Thank you so much.
