Getting ready for Christmas!

Hi everyone,  I hope you are all well and looking forward to Christmas,  I can’t believe how quickly the festive season will soon be upon us!

It has been quite a while since I last wrote in my blog, but I thank you for all your well wishes whilst I was ill. My Colitis has been a little unpredictable this year and the tablets I was taking made me feel exceedingly tired, but thankfully I have started a new regime and feel much better :) This has given me a lot more energy and a renewed spirit for making new creations and prayer beads. The site will include some new rosary designs in time for Christmas,  and I’m busy making some devotional chaplets too! I have been receiving many bespoke orders over the past few months and it always makes me feel truly blessed to help my customers create their perfect gift – thank you again for all your kind words and lovely comments upon receiving your handmade pieces. 0marybluesm

I will be adding the last postal dates on the site in a few weeks, please make sure you order in time if you need your handmade gift as a Christmas gift. I will add the dates on twitter too in case any of you are following me on there :)

Wishing you all a truly beautiful weekend, with much love and blessings, Emma Jane

Spring is Coming!

Spring-Blossom-SunshineHello everyone! It’s been a while since I last wrote in my blog/diary and sent an email to all my dear friends and customers – I do hope you’re all well and looking forward to Spring and Easter. New buds are starting to sprout in the garden and new life is springing forth from the ground – it’s so beautiful to see! I do love Spring and the welcome sight of the sun shining upon the Earth :)

Holy Communion Rosary

Holy Communion Rosary


What have I been up to I hear you ask? Well, I’ve been quite busy restocking my rosary beads after the Christmas season and creating new designs for the coming months. The Holy Communion season is soon approaching and with that in mind I’ve created a new rosary using lilac jade gemstones and silver flower beads for little girls. It’s turned out quite well, very cute! I hope you like it too…..
I’ve also created a Sacred Heart of Jesus rosary using faceted dream agate and coffee agate gemstones, these stones combine really well together and provide a lot of healing energies to promote harmony within the mind, body and spirit. Just beautiful! I’ve also added two new sterling silver rosary beads (told you I’d been busy!) – and they can both be found on this page:


Here are the three new rosaries for your to peruse, they’re made using some lovely gemstones – dream agate, coffee agate, fossil crinoid, blue impression jasper and antique agate. I do hope you like them! I thoroughly enjoyed creating them…..

I’m also on Pinterest, if you would like to Follow me then I’d be honoured and blessed if you did – here is my page for you to view and enjoy –– I look forward to seeing you there! I’ve also had a thought about writing more frequently in my blog/diary to keep my customers more up to date – I promise not to bombard you with constant notifications everyday, but maybe once a month or twice a month might be nice :) Let me know if this doesn’t appeal to you and I can revert back to just once every two months.

Until next time, sending you much love and Divine blessings, God bless, Emma Jane x x 

Happy New Year for 2013!

Happy New YearHello everyone! I’d just like to wish all my dear customers and friends a truly blessed and Happy New Year, may all your hopes and wishes be fulfilled, and may the Lord God guide you throughout the coming year. Wishing you all a beautiful 2013!

I am busy re-stocking products from after the Christmas rush as many items are now out of stock, and I’m also hoping to create some new designs for 2013. I have lots of projects on the go and cannot wait to start adding them to site :)

Thank you once again for all your valued custom and kind comments through 2012, you are a joy to my soul and I feel honoured to serve you all. God bless you always, with much love from Emma Jane x x x

Charity Rosary Beads and New Designs!

ChristmasHello my beautiful friends and customers! I hope you’re all well and looking forward to the festive season – did you know, it’s only 29 days til Christmas day! How exciting! Thanks to a lot of rest and healing prayers, I am feeling much better with my Colitis and back to creating rosaries and new prayer beads :) Thank you again to everyone for your support and love.

I also thought it might be a beautiful idea to create some handmade rosary beads and prayer beads for charity – enabling my customers to donate money to a good cause and also receive one of my handmade items in the process. After choosing a rosary or prayer gift from the items listed on my charity page and the order has been processed, I then donate 50% of the proceeds to the designated charity listed on the page.  A customer from Newcastle has recently donated £10 after ordering a faith bracelet for £20 – so we’re on our way! If you fancy donating a little something to charity (any amount will be a blessing, £2, £5 it doesn’t matter) – it will mean so much to so many people. Thank you in advance for your kindness!

charityHere is the web page for donating (without purchasing an item) –

I’m also creating some new baby bracelets, as they have been selling well these past few months and a new collection of spiritual meditation beads have also been added to my site! I’m actually quite excited about these as they’re a lovely tool for meditation and contemplation. Perfect for someone who just wants to hold onto the beads and recite their own prayers. Many people are finding comfort from praying to their Guardian Angel and celestial beings. I’m hoping the new prayer beads will bring much comfort, love and faith to whoever wants to use them. I’ve even made the tassels myself – which as a terrible seamstress I’m quite pleased with the overall result! I’m now quite tassel crazy and looking at items I can add tassels to! meditation

I will be adding the Christmas posting days on my web site soon, so you can be quite sure of your orders arriving in time for Christmas day :) Thank you again to everyone for your support and love over these past few months, you are an absolute blessing to me and my job is so much more rewarding thanks to your heavenly light shining upon me.

Wishing you all a truly beautiful week filled with love and Divine blessings, until next time, God bless, love Emma Jane x x x

Feeling Better, New Rosaries and a Voucher!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone! Happy Halloween! I hope you’re all well and enjoying your week – I feel so very blessed and thankful for all your love and healing wishes. Your prayers and get well cards have been so generous and thoughtful, thank you! They have been a great comfort to me, and I’m now feeling a little better! I’m not back to full strength, but slowly getting there. I have had the opportunity to create and make some new rosary designs and mala prayer beads – which is wonderful!

Christmas Rosary

I have added a Christmas rosary to the web site, which I really enjoyed making – I have included a free Holly Charm to be added to your rosary too (if you wish) and I think it’s a sweet idea – and looks really cute. I hope you like it too! It’s already available to buy online and with a few other designs that I’ve managed to make (three of which you’ve already bought – thank you!) – I’m fully stocked in time for Christmas. Phew!

I know, I know – Christmas? Am I really talking about Christmas already? Please forgive me my beautiful friends and customers, but once the cold wintry nights set in and the clocks go back – we all have to start preparing for the beautiful Christmas festivities, and buying early to avoid disappointment is always a good idea. So, I just thought I’d mention it. Also – if you order before Bonfire Night you can use the following voucher for 10% off everything on my site. Just use the code: PUMPKIN at the checkout and click ‘apply’ to receive your discount.

Until next time, my beautiful angels! May I wish you all a fabulous Halloween night and many blessings in your life, God bless, Emma x x x
