Shipping & policies
Because of the schedule of my day job, I ship within three business days. Shipping is by USPS first class or priority mail, depending on the weight, and is free within the United States; see individual items for shipping costs to other countries. I'll add insurance at my end on any orders over $75 USD. International customers, if there are customs or other governmental fees applicable you will need to take care of them.
I accept payments through PayPal (you can pay either from your own Paypal account balance or through a major credit card accepted by PayPal) and by credit card through Etsy's direct checkout. You can also pay by personal check, but since the order won't be sent until the check clears, you'll have a wait between the time I receive your payment and the time I send your order. This includes PayPal echecks.
Returns & exchanges
If you don't receive your purchase in a timely manner or have any other problem with it, please let me know through a convo at Etsy. If the problem cannot be worked out, I will refund the purchase price if the item is returned within 30 days of purchase. To keep things as simple as possible, the refund will include the cost you paid for original shipping, but you will need to pay the postage/shipping to send the item back.
Nothing I make is unbreakable. If an item breaks or needs restringing due to regular use at any time after purchase, if you send it to me (at your cost) I'll repair it using the best match I can find for any broken or lost beads. Since I may need to order supplies, I can't make any guarantees on how long this will take, but after the item is repaired I'll send it back to you. If within a year of purchase, the repair and return shipping will be at my cost. If more than a year after purchase, I will ask that you reimburse me for needed supplies and return shipping.
Note: Nothing I sell is intended for children - some of the "cutest" items are the most breakable. In addition, my items have not had the ingredient testing necessary for children's products.
On flexible beading wire:
All of my rosaries are made using 49-strand, nylon-coated flexible beading wire, the highest grade available. They are as flexible as traditional rosaries, but have no links that can get caught on clothing, etc. They can break, however, especially at the points where the center and the cross are connected to the rest of the rosary. In case of breakage, see my policy on restringing, above. Note that on items properly made with flexible wire, you will feel some "give" in the beads and will see small areas of visible wire - this construction avoids breakage that can come from the wire being too taut.
On the Franciscan Crown Rosary:
The Franciscan Crown Rosary celebrates the seven joys of Mary - Well, what would you expect from Franciscans? The decades are listed below. Begin immediately with the decades. After all seven decades are prayed, continue to the Hail Mary's and Our Father's indicated on the rosary's stem. The first two Hail Mary's (grouped together on the rosary) added to the 70 in the decades commemorate "the 72 years of Mary's life on earth." I don't know who decided that Mary lived for 72 years, but I appreciate the symbolism even if the number isn't exact. The closing Our Father and Hail Mary are said for the intentions of the pope.
1. The Annunciation
2. The Visitation to Elizabeth
3. The Birth of Jesus
4. The Adoration of the Magi
5. The Finding of Jesus in the Temple
6. The Resurrection of Jesus
7. Mary's Assumption and Coronation
There are at least three possible arrangements for the beads on the "stem" of a Franciscan Crown rosary. I tend to favor the one that some people consider outdated, because it makes the most sense to me:
Ave--Ave--Pater--Ave (4 beads).
Many use a 5-bead arrangement:
Pater--Ave--Ave--Pater--Ave, using the first Pater bead for the Our Father of the first decade. This doesn't make as much sense to me, because it involves skipping over the crucifix and then coming back again. I have made a few rosaries with this arrangement, though, since it's very common.
Either of these two arrangements is correct and doesn't affect how the prayers are said.
You might even see some rosaries that use the regular (Dominican) bead arrangement on the stem:
Of course, you can use any rosary to pray the Franciscan Crown, but the Dominican arrangement of the stem isn't proper for a Franciscan Crown rosary.
