About Us

RosaryBeads.ie specialises in creating unusual and treasured gifts for more special life events such as big birthdays, anniversaries, and sacramental occasions. We design and craft high-end heirloom-quality rosaries and crosses, all handcrafted with love here in Ireland.

Mary Varilly, jewellery designer and crafter of these lovely rosary beads, grew up in Donegal with the evening family rosary as an established tradition. Always enchanted by nature's colours and an avid collector of gemstones, she came late to jewellery making, launching her True Colours jewellery business in 2008 and the Rosarybeads.ie range in 2012, both within an aesthetic of quality materials, classic elegance and clean lines.

Now based in Dublin, Mary combines high grade semi-precious stones or quality freshwater pearls with elegant crucifixes and centres cast in bronze or silver, many being reproductions of centuries-old originals, such as the Penal crucifix dating back to 1722 or the Celtic High Crosses from the 8th - 12th centuries. She handwraps a unique strong connector using bronze or silver wire and offers a five-year guarantee on parts and craftsmanship.

In creating each piece, Mary first uses vibrational essences to clear the residue of old energies and stresses from the stones and pearls before enhancing them with the energies for peace and emotional balance. While making them she invokes the blessing of Our Lady to support the rosary owner.

Mary presents each small rosary in a quality pouch or the full five-decade rosaries in a leather purse for protection and durability. They come beautifully packaged in a gold-embossed bronze-colour gift box.

Enjoy your unique rosary beads - a pleasure for today, an heirloom for the future!

Made with Love, Pray with Joy!
