Have you ever wanted to share your faith with someone but haven't known how? Is there someone you know that needs to be lifted up, but words are insufficient? Have you had difficulty finding exactly what you have been seeking in a religious gift?
Look no further! A custom rosary can fill so many voids. See the testimonials page for a small sample of the reactions people have when they receive their custom Athey Rosary. Consider your own reaction to something someone commissioned for you or made for you; it is always different from just another gift, it is a treasure. Imagine the reaction someone will have when they receive a custom ROSARY.
In a series of easy steps, I can help you design the rosary that you have been seeking. Let the Holy Spirit guide us, and He will not let us down.
How does it work?
Send an email to email@example.com with as much of the following information as you wish to provide:
Description of the recipient. Some general questions that I might ask to help hone in on bead and metal fittings that are perfect for the recipient:
What do they like to do?
Are they traditional/classic, spirited/lively, contemplative?
What month were they born? Would they appreciate a rosary that is made with, or incorporates, their birthstone?
Is there a Saint, Pope or reference to Our Lady that is particularly special in their life?
Is the recipient in the military?
Are there any colors that appear to be favorites or meaningful?
Are there any rosaries, or components of one of the rosaries, in the collection that you would like to integrate?
Is this rosary being commissioned for a particular event?
Timeline (when do you need your rosary?)
In the event you do not have a vision for exactly what you want, don't worry! I will compose a selection of options for you to evaluate and choose from. We can iterate until it is perfect.
Once you decide on a rosary, I will let you know how quickly I can make it and get it to you. If you choose to move forward, I will send a PayPal invoice to you via email. Once I receive payment, I will begin work immediately. Once completed, I will ship the rosary to you via USPS Priority Mail.
Are there any other stones available beyond what is shown in my collections?
Yes! There are so many beautiful stones to work with. I use only high quality gemstones (grade B or higher) or Swarovski crystals/pearls. While I can special order many beads, I typically carry stock of: bloodstone, fancy jasper, garnet, amethyst, lapis lazuli, Amazonite, African jade, bamboo coral, carnelian, dumortierite and several Swarovski pearl and crystal variations (some shown in the photos on this page).
Are there any other crucifixes and centerpieces to choose from?
Yes! I purchase my Sterling Silver pieces from Bliss Manufacturing and HMH, both made in the USA. I would be happy to send a visual reference to you via email.
Is it cost prohibitive to make a custom rosary?
No! Certain components cost more than others, but in general, a custom rosary will cost in the ballpark of $150-$175 for Sterling Silver and $75-$100 for pewter. If there are very specific stones or metals that you seek, those ranges may not differ. I will let you know the pricing for all options that I present to you. My goal is to make you the most beautiful rosary possible and to spread the love of Jesus through Mary, not to make millions.
