Recently we have found the most wonderful community of Catholic Artisans on instagram and we are delighted to introduce you to Rebecca at Delphina Rose Art who has just created an absolutely beautiful Marian Colouring bundle to add to her gorgeous religious artwork on Etsy ! It is always a pleasure to introduce people to other Catholic Artisans and help them to spread the Good News through the beauty of their work!
Beads with Faith is a family run company based upon the Rosary and its teachings. As a Catholic company we aim to encompass faith and bead craft to create handmade Rosary beads, chaplets and Christocentric jewellery items. This blog will contain faith centred articles, information about our workshops and some of our products.
If you follow us on social media, you may have noticed some excitement a few weeks ago on instagram and facebook! Beads with Faith have been looking for someone to help us with artwork for a VERY long time ... I love to create Rosary Beads and Chaplets and can draw a little - but wanted drawings that were new and of a great standard to include in our resources for schools and individuals - I have spoken to many people but we never found the right fit!
Then. Lo and behold I come across a wonderful artist on instagram - Drawing the Faith with Mary - I was blown away and I hope you are too :)
One of the main missions at Beads with Faith is to reawaken a love of the Rosary in our homes, schools, families and parishes ...
In 2001 I painted 'The Crucifixion' as a gift to the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, based in the Bronx, New York. The piece was inspired by original illuminations, painted in the 15th century, which are rich in symbolism, seeped in spirituality and tradition. The religious images I have been commissioned to paint all refer to an iconic style, with a twist of 'Nikki'. I do not follow the tradition of using tempera paint, however I do ensure I am surrounded with prayer and inspiration as all images of God, His Blessed Mother, His Angels and His Saints are a glimpse of heaven, the paintings themselves should be a prayer, an aid to deepening spirituality. My spiritual paintings are, I hope and pray an inspiration to others. I feel blessed the Lord has chosen and trusted me to portray Him and all who glorify Him.
