"Amy immigrated to Canada from Wisconsin in 1977. She settled permanently in Yellowknife in 1995. Following a conversion experience in Inuvik in 1983, which was examined and validated by a priest, she began tentatively trying to make rosaries around 1993, fumbling with bits of wire and beads at first, back then. Now the rosaries she designs and makes by hand range from fairly simple to more elaborate, with the aim of making them personal, symbolic, and works of art. But it's always about PRAYER."
