While rosaries traditionally adorn the necks of Catholics everywhere, Carlen Altman decided it was time for rosaries to branch out to another religion. With that came her creation of Jewish rosaries.

The ‘Peace Party’ collection features low-cost designs made of plastic in red, black and white. With the ‘Classic’ collection, designs range from the Star of David to a Hamsa hand and are made of gold, silver and brass.

And with that, a Jewish woman who wanted to be able to wear rosaries ensured the rosary becomes a multi-faith jewelry design.
