“Begin with the beautiful, which leads you to the good, which leads you to the truth. Beauty is the arrowhead of evangelization.”
--Bishop Robert Barron.
Auspice Maira Pendant. We designed this pendant around an old French medal originally created to honor the Blessed Mother and the dogma of the Immaculate Conception. The "A" and "M" stand for Auspice Maria, which is Latin for Under the Protection of Mary. On the reverse is Our Lady of Lourdes. It was during an apparition at Lourdes that Our Lady confirmed to seer Bernadette her title as "The Immaculate Conception."

Our hand-crafted rosary and chaplet devotionals feature the highest quality materials including semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski crystals and Czech beads. The antique replica centers and crucifixes are hand cast in both bronze and sterling silver. Our in-house jewelry team of design, CAD, CNC and 3D system experts bring years of industry experience and expertise to produce the highest quality Catholic jewelry. Once cast, our jewelry is antiqued and polished by hand to bring out every detail!
The Rosary has long been an important devotion in my daily prayer life; however, Fount of Grace began when our eldest daughter and her cousin announced their desire to attend World Youth Day in Madrid in 2011. World Youth Day is a “world meeting place” of young-adult Catholics, who come together approximately every two years, to pray, to share in the Church teachings, and to experience the universality of the Catholic Church. Our daughters’ desire seemed inspired, but unlikely, considering the fact that it overlapped with the first week of their senior year in high school, and that the expense added to their already costly and looming tuition bills. Onto this scene entered my sister, the eternal optimist and recent convert to the Catholic Church. In her usual can-do style, she told me, “We’re going to make rosaries as a fundraiser. If Our Lady wants them to go, we will raise the money!” I was a bit skeptical, yet when the girls were given permission to miss their first week of school, I took that as a sign. Over the next year, we created and sold enough rosaries to fund their travel to Madrid.
This of course ignited the five younger cousins to take their rosary-making seriously. Since 2010, the girls have created hundreds of rosaries and all seven had the privilege of attending World Youth Day (Madrid 2011, Rio de Janeiro 2013, and Krakow 2016). Each has returned with a new and deeper understanding of their faith and the Catholic Church. Though the girls went off to college, our customers continued to ask for rosaries, and thus, Fount of Grace was born. We thank you for your interest in our boutique store and we look forward to working with you and providing you with an heirloom devotional which meets your heart’s desire, both now and in eternity!
May God Bless You!
In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary,
Fount of Grace
