When I was a little girl, my aunt Kathy sent my sister and I boxes of beads. She had been a jewelry designer and was taking a little break or cleaning up her supply and thought that we would love to have them. Whenever we visited her, she would always get crafty with us and she really was a great cultivator for the love of art in my life. We still to the day have beads left from what she sent us years ago. As we got older learned to make rosaries, it was something beautiful that we could create and give share God's message of love to those around us. I use a heavy wax coated nylon string not the standard wire link rosary making, but it's my own little creative contribution. It's an easy way for people of all skill levels to be able to make beautiful beaded rosaries. My sister and I love to go looking for unique beads that we like to use for the Our Father's. It's very much a rewarding creative process searching for the perfect color combination of beads and then bringing all together for a beautiful piece that inspires us to think of the beauty of God. Art should inspire, especially sacred art should lift one's soul up to imagine God's Glory and Majesty.
