I don't have a picture of the rosary I bought 6 years ago going on 7, but I wanted to let you know that it is still in use and is my favorite to use. I bought it to replace one that I had purchased from a local Catholic Supply store, that broke within a short period of time. My BattleBeads rosary has lasted over 3 times longer than the commercial rosary that cost twice as much! YBiC, ~Jim C., Coralville, IA
These are gorgeous, Mary!!! I love them and so will my daughter's teachers.
Even more beautiful than I expected :) Thank you so very much."

"Hello Mary, I just received the beautiful rosary that you so lovingly made. They r beautiful. Thank you also for all of those special cards that you have enclosed. And you are right they are very heavy. But ever so nice. If anyone I know needs any of your products that you make I will surely recommend you. God Bless You Mary" ~Jeanne B., Hardinsburg, IN
"Wow!! They are beautiful! The first rosary I pray with them will be for your intentions. Thank so much!!" ~Matthew K.,Folcroft, PA
"My rosary arrived yesterday...AWESOME! It is light weight and the perfect length. Most of all, the craftmanship is exquiste! Your love for our Blessed Mother and the gift of her rosary is clearly visible." ~Anthony S., Omaha, NE
"I just now opened the package you sent me. It was like Christmas! The Rosary is just so beautiful, more lovely than I ever expected! Thank you!" ~Nancy S., Batavia, OH
"Anyway, thank you very much for all you effort and fine work. The chaplet is beautiful and appears well made, I think it's the praying and human hands that make all the difference! I'm sure this is the beginning of a long and fruitful friendship.... the ring is very beautiful too! The pic online doesn't really do it full justice.... I didn't notice the beveled affect in the band until I received it.... very nice! (For an inexpensive ring it looks quite rich.) " ~William H., Austin, MN
"Hi Mary, I am very sorry that it took me so long to write this - but I got the beads, and they are BEAUTIFUL! Just as I knew they would be after you showed me the finished picture. Trinity is going to LOVE them! Thank you for helping me to make something so important very personal and special. I just wish I had known you when my two other sons had their First Communions. Oh well.......I know one of them is already planning on getting his own beads shortly. Thanks again, so much!" ~Carol B., Bridgewater, MA
"THANK YOU! Went to the UPS Store yesterday and picked up my parcels. Your envelope was there and what a pleasant and unexpected surprise to have all those other little cards and blessings included. The rosaries look lovely. Thank you. Have a wonderful Christmas." ~Dan N., Ontario, Canada
"Dear Mary, I received the beads last week & they are lovely. I can't wait to give them to my dd. I'm so glad we crossed paths on FB! God bless you!" ~Beth P., Omaha, NE
"I just purchased several of your
rosaries and they are EXCEPTIONAL. I LOVE THEM. Thank you for such a
great job. I have a question. I would like a USA Chaplet with the glass
beads like are shown in the card that you sent along with the chaplet.
I would definitely buy another chaplet if I could have one with the
smooth, round glass beads. If not, that's fine as well. Again, thank
you for creating such beautiful rosaries. I am also going to post your
link on my facebook page. I have a lot of Catholic friends and a lot
of my friends collect rosaries so will be happy to post your link. God
"Greetings once again to you, The
chaplet arrived to me today all in good conditon and quite quickly also.
I am totally delighted with them and they are beautiful. When I go to
morning mass tomorrow morning as I did today, I shall take them with
me to be blessed by our priest. I am sure he has never seen or heard
of the USA Chaplet so I shall explain them to him and show him the Nihil
Obstat. He is a remarkable priest and he is only 42 year old and ever
so nice. Thank you again, your do beautiful work and I am in hopes I
can buy the St. Michael Chaplet end of next week." ~Ivan
W., Redfield, SD
"All paid :) You do beautiful work
and your customer service is exceptional!
"Hello Mary, The beads were in the
mail today! That was fast service. More importantly they are so very
nice. I love your choices. I am not aware of anything else which has
ever been touched to a 1st Class Relic that I have. What a nice touch.
Thank you also for the Prayer Cards. I will remember you each time I
use them. I say the St Gertrude prayer 10 times, at least, each day.
We need to keep praying for the souls in Purgatory and all the lost
souls on this earth." ~Ruth.S, Middletown, OH
"Hi Mary, I just wanted to let you
know I received your beautiful beads in the mail the other day, (on
the actual day of the Archangels Feast Day, and I was so very pleased
about that!), I can't thank you enough! Special prayers for you and
thank you again." ~Julie Ann J., New South Wales,
"Hi Mary. I would like to thank you of all my heart for wonderful rosaries. Your rosaries are not just beautiful, but they are filled with love, dedication and is an act of class. I do recommend your work for others. Heaven must be smiling now, as this is so wonderful." ~Tommy K. Oslo, Norway
"Dear Mary, Thank you so very much for the beautiful work on my order. The chaplets were even more gorgeous once I held it in my hand. I am truly blessed by your fine work. Every piece was beautiful. I also want to thank you for something you included in the package--the St. Therese prayer card with the gold rose. I don't know if I had mentioned it to you during our emails, but St. Therese is truly a dear friend to me. During the week that you and I went back and forth over email I had been in the middle of a novena chaplet to St. Therese for a very special intention. As you know, the sign of a rose is quite often a sign that St. Therese has heard one's prayers. Well, Saturday was the last day of the novena. I spent most of my day taking a standardized exam and got home a little past 5pm. There I saw the package from you and found the prayer card with the rose. I believe that that small rose was a sign from St. Therese of prayers heard. Whatever prompted you to include it in the package...I thank you." ~Angelica Q. San Francisco, Ca.
"After many years of trying to find the "perfect" rosary, I have finally found it. Mary's rosaries are handmade with beautiful craftsmanship. My purple cats-eye rosary changes in the light--it is just beautiful. The beads are smooth and the construction is strong. Mary puts a lot of herself into these. They are well worth the cost. Trust me, the pictures do not do them justice! I would recommend these for gifts and for your own personal use. Since receiving mine, I use it daily with great joy as I commune with Our Lord and His Blessed Mother. Thank you so much for your amazing work!" ~Pamela Luther, National Roman Catholic Examiner
"Handmade Rosaries in my past experience have always been more "homemade" than handmade. Battle Beads has taken handmade to a level not seen before. The quality of the construction of the Rosary is unsurpassable. The most minute details are carefully crafted for function as well as form. The links are perfectly shaped and closed securely. The array of beads, crystals, (particularly Swarovski) and semi-precious stones are gleaming and brillant in nature. As nice as the photos are of the Rosaries, actually holding them in front of you, the pictures pale in comparison. I have always been a believer that Our Lady, Queen of Heaven should be honored with the most beautiful Rosaries. Battle Beads rises to this occasion with every Rosary made. I will continue to purchase these works of art for Our Blessed Mother and one day hope to see Mary's work on the hands of all those who pray the Rosary from their very soul." ~Sophia G., Neptune, NJ
