Rosette Rosary

You may recall that I made this fabric rosette bib necklace for my mother for Christmas. Unfortunately, the mesh ribbon I used for the actual necklace part was too “itchy”. Note to self: use satin or chain link. This is important to remember in the event that you ever decide to make your own. Needless to say, this necklace has sat on my craft table for 6 months now awaiting a new chain. Saturday is Mom’s birthday. So what’s the gift that keeps on giving? You guessed it…a new and improved fabric bib rosette necklace!

I went shopping in my jewelry box for some ribbon or a strand that could serve as a new chain. The good news is, I uncovered the perfect solution. The bad news is, my selection just so happened to be a strand of rosary beads.

I am not now nor have I ever been Catholic, therefore, how a set of rosary beads ended up in my jewelry box is a complete mystery. I even considered not using them for fear that it was somehow sacrilegious, but they just…worked. If you are Catholic, I sincerely hope you’re not offended. If you are, well… I hope you’ll forgive for me.

Happy Birthday, Mom!
