Handmade Rosary Beads at Serenity Gifts

At Serenity Gifts we offer a beautiful selection of quality handmade rosaries lovingly created by Emma Jane Brown in the UK - here are a few samples of her designs.

You can buy them here, just click the text link to view them:


We think they're absolutely beautiful! They're made from quality rosary parts and beading wire, and some crosses are even sourced from the USA! She also offers a bespoke service, so if you want a special rosary or something personalised just ask us to contact her on your behalf and she will contact you regarding how to create a custom made order. Please be aware that this personalised service will cost extra. Emma Jane will explain all the details to you if you require a custom made rosary or mala.

Many of the rosary beads are lovingly created from healing gemstone beads, and the properties of these beads are all listed on her own web site, so if you want to choose some special beads then she will guide you to the correct kind. For example, did you know that a stone called Hematite can help with harmonising mind, body and spirit. It's said to be particularly effective at grounding and protecting, it also helps to dissolve negativity and prevents negative energies from entering the aura. Hematite is also used to improve relationships. Isn't that amazing! We're learning all about the healing properties of gemstones at Serenity Gifts.

Emma Jane also makes mala beads, prayer beads and bracelets too. So, if you don't feel inclined towards a rosary, why not try some meditation beads or a mala to help with your daily prayer routine. Just holding the beads in your hands can be a great way to help focus your attention and relax your thoughts. We hope you enjoy browsing through the many handmade rosary beads and prayer beads that we offer on Serenity Gifts.

If there's anything you would like to ask about the rosaries, then please do get in touch and we'll be happy to help. Wishing you a lovely day, until next time.
Blessings and peace, Maria and The Serenity Gifts Team x x

Serenity Prayer Verse Poem Gifts

Serenity Prayer Verse Poem Gifts

The Serenity Prayer Verse is a very well known poem by Reinhold Niebuhr. At Serenity Gifts, it's one of our most favourite verses - and it's one of the many reasons why we called ourselves Serenity Gifts. If you're unfamiliar with the lovely poem in its entirety, then please feel free to read the passage below....





Serenity Verse GiftsGod grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

--Reinhold Niebuhr


Most Serenity Verse Gifts on our web site contain the top few lines of the poem; God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; and Wisdom to know the difference.
