ONE DECADE ROSARY BRACELETS
Growing up in the retail clothing industry, Stacy Mercugliano found much enjoyment in the accessorizing aspect of fashion. Through a series of events, she found herself called to the Catholic faith. St. Teresa of Calcutta once claimed her bible was her weapon; for Stacy, the weapon are rosary beads, and she commonly refers to her one-decade rosary bracelets as "concealed weapons" due to their fashionable look.
Arma Matris rosary bracelets are designed to appear as a bracelet upon first glance. They are one-decade, durable, stretch bracelets (allowing for the accommodation of varied hand/wrist sizes). She uses high-quality beads (glass, Swarovski crystal, lava, hematite, fresh-water pearls, ceramic, wood...) in combination with metal alloy spacers in order to keep the prices affordable and allow for people to own several. Her designs vary, and several are one-of-a-kind. Some designs are more sporty or every day/indiscreet, while others are more eye-catching.
