Henry in Fredericksburg, VA on his October 22, 2016 order:"Hi Joan, Thanks so much for your kind note. I also received the two rosaries in today's mail.
The rosaries were wonderfully warm and comfortable in the hand. The simplicity of the Walnut rosary was wonderfully fresh. The walnut beads had a visible pattern that highlights the walnut wood itself. The brown with black spacers provide a calming tonal quality to the rosary. Nice selections on your part.
Two features that I specifically appreciated. First, the extra spacing between the Ave beads allows my fingers to securely finger one bead at a time. Usually they are so close on other rosaries that I can easily feel two or three beads every time. Thanks for this extra spacing. Second, not having a medal at the decades split allows me to go directly from the Glory Be to the Our Father (or the reverse at the end) on a single bead. Surprisingly nice transition.
Let me mention that while the crucifix complements the simplicity and coloring of the rosary, I might suggest an increase in its size would balance the look and feel of this larger rosary. Speaking of size, when I compared the beads of this Walnut rosary to the Red Creek rosary, the walnut beads seem to be noticeably larger, perhaps 12mm. I like this size.
The Red Creek Jasper beads were more stunning than I expected. This coloration of the jasper stone provides an earthly feel in its red, orange, green, brown, and other tones. Your choice of the amber (?) spacers provided a rich contrast with the jasper. Again, you delivered a beautiful rosary design.
I took a more detailed look at the rosaries at your Etsy site and actually found several 10mm plus rosary beads (Olive wood, Bayong wood, Jade). I will definitely be back for a holiday shopping trip.
Thank you again for your note and for the warmth of the design of the two rosaries. See you soon."
Douglas in Blackpool, Lancashire, England on his October 24, 2016 order: "Hi Joan, Just to let you know my order arrived this morning. I am very satisfied with the Anglican rosary, it looks good and is very well made. Thank you for your service."
Brook in Berkeley, CA on his November 9, 2016 order: "Joan, Thank you so much for the rosary. It will be a gift for a friend that I recently sponsored for confirmation into the Episcopal Church. The wood is beautiful and the smaller black beads subtly give the rosary a fuller and lively accent. I will let you know what he says about it after I gift it. Many thanks and blessings for your wonderful work."
William in Scott City, KS on his November 21, 2016 Etsy order: This customer left 5 stars.

Seth in Hampton, VA on his December 9, 2017 request for four Catholic 10mm hematite rosaries before Christmas: "I was afraid you would say that. (in ref to my saying that ordering and receiving the beads and then making the rosaries would not guarantee a delivery date before Christmas) Regrettably, I need these as Christmas gifts. I really like your rosaries and I plan on buying more from you in the future, but I will have to get these particular rosaries from another place. Thank you for your personal attention. You have a wonderful ministry of helping people connect with the Lord through your art. Please keep it up."
