-if you’re looking for a wood rosary that is not dedicated to St. Joseph, send me an email at and let me know what center piece you want swapped in!-

In the unlikely event that this rosary should break, simply gather all the beads you can find and email me. You only pay for shipping and the replacement of missing parts; major beads and the medals.



St. Joseph, the husband of Mary, watched over and protected the Holy Family through Jesus’ childhood. As a carpenter he provided for his family through the same kind of daily grind that we go through. That hidden life that no one really sees.

What is your hidden life like? As you pray this rosary, unite your daily struggles and joys with Joseph and Mary.

And remember that in every moment of Joseph’s hidden life, Jesus, the God of the universe, was with him. He allowed Joseph to teach Him carpentry – even though He had invented the trees themselves – and worked along side him. And when Joseph died, Jesus continued his work until He began the work of His Father in Heaven.

It’s interesting, fitting, that Jesus chose to be a carpenter when He knew what kind of death He would have – nailed to a wood cross. With each stroke of the plane did He mediate on His death?

Immerse yourself in your hidden life and realize Jesus is just as close to you as He was to Joseph. He dwells in your heart with its every beat.


This rosary, unlike my other rosaries, is made with wood, so it is rather light. However, if you decide on the large version, the crucifix is hefty and will add that weight back in.

The wood is sandalwood which smells AMAZING. And will remain for years (or that’s what they say). For whatever reason the smaller beads smell stronger than the larger.

The large rosary is 20.5in long while the small version is the standard 16in long.

The rosary is assembled with 49-strand steel beading wire, crimping beads, and wire protectors, so it is super strong.

Please remember that all things can break with excessive use. Under normal, conscientious use, this rosary will last a very long time, but, for instance, if you keep this rosary in a tight pocket every day, all day and get it crushed under you or against something, the small glass spacers can break and the steel wire will be under strain and can stretch and even break.

These repairs can be made, and I would be delighted to do so, but as time goes on, I might not have extra beads or I might be gone. So do be gentle and take good care of your rosary.

***If you would like to replace the centerpiece (or crucifix) for another devotion, just send me an email at***



Lobster clasp and chain make the new bracelets far more adjustable than the old designs. Two sizes are available: Small and Medium/Large. The only difference is the length of the chain. Small goes from 7″ to 7.5″, Med/Large goes from 7″ to about 8.5″.

If the size is too big, you can easily use two pliers and remove any excess chain and make it exactly customized to your wrist.
