A FAVORITE DEVOTION OF POPE FRANCIS
 In the 1980’s Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio, S.J. (nowPope Francis) saw the painting of Mary, Undoer of Knots at the church of St. Peter Perlach (Augsburg Germany).  He was so deeply touched by this devotion,  he brought it back to Argentina where it grew in popularity with the people. Now, we are made more aware of its history thanks again to Pope Francis. 
+
INSCRIBED PRAYER
Over the years, Cardinal Bergoglio, (now Pope Francis),  would include a holy card of Mary, Undoer of Knots in his correspondence. Inscribed on the beck  was the following prayer:
+
   “May evil never ensnare you in its chaotic web…May you [Mary] act as an example of how to unravel the knots in our lives and help us through difficult times with simplicity and patience, through the intercession of Your Son.” 
+
AND HE  REMINDS US
“All of us have knots in our hearts, failings and all of us go through difficult times. Our good Lord, who bestows grace on all His children, wants us to have faith in Her; he wants us to entrust the knots of our woes to her, the knots of our miseries that prevent us from reaching God, so that She can untie them and bring us closer to His son Jesus. This is the meaning of the icon.” Pope Francis

 HISTORICAL REMINDERS
Each crucifix, cross, rosary center and religious medal in our collection is a rare and precious reminder of our faith regardless of the metal used.  We take great joy in finding these old (3rd - 20c) unmarked crosses, crucifixes and medals which are un-repeatable today.   Many show wear from love and use. Once cast, each piece is individually hand cleaned, antiqued and polished to restore its  original patina.

 GIVING NEW LIFE
TO OLD TREASURES
Again, restoring and handcasting these old pieces not only brings them out of obscurity - giving them new life - but also helps us reflect on our heritage as a continuing people of God. If in any way these beautiful sacramentals - that have been given new life - have encouraged or strengthened your faith or created a stronger devotion to our Lord, they have accomplished their purpose and we are truly filled with gratitude for having the opportunity of making them available again.

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE 
THE POWER OF THE ROSARY IN YOUR HANDS
  The first Hail Mary was brought to earth by Angel Gabriel to Mary.  Paul VI called the rosary "a compendium of the Gospel." Pio called the rosary, "his weapon".  At Fatima, Mary identified herself as, "I am the Lady of the Rosary" 
+
SHE CONTINUED BY SAYING
"I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins.  They must not offend our Lord any more, for he is already to grievously offended by the sins of men.  People must say the rosary.  Let them continue saying it every day."

the remaining mixes determine the desired metal.'

 ... FROM THE PROS  ...
Those new (professional) side cutters are fantastic!   I've had mine for a year, and I love them.  Couldn't imagine that there'd be such a difference between those and a less expensive pair, but there is!  Plus they have a lifetime resharpening service. Maria K (Via Rosa) professional rosary maker
+
... WE USE THEM 
AT THE ROSARYWORKSHOP ...
This is true - I bought my professional side cutters by K H LEE over 5 years ago and they are as sharp as the day I bought them - just don't cut anything else with them  - like, don't try to cut through crimping beads! They are especially made for softflex type products, and I love their padded handles. (He signs each pair which is a nice touch.) Now all the guild uses them and yes, they are very good about repairs or replacement.  Had to replace one pair and they were returned within a week.  + M

"Let us show gratitude by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe - for our God is a consuming fire"
(Hebrews 12:  28-29)




~ DISCLAIMER ETC.~
+
+ WE LOVE RESTORING OLD PIECES +
We love giving these old treasures new life!  We have gone to a lot of trouble, time and effort searching, purchasing, researching dates and history.  We restore damaged pieces to their original beauty before they are cast and made available.  All this so we all can use them again.
+
 There is nothing that pleases us more than to hear from you.  It means so much to us knowing you are enjoying using these beautiful pieces in your work as much as we do.  We too are inspired by them and humbled by the richness of these rare old designs when incorperated into rosaries. 
 +
THE ROSARY WORKSHOP RECOGNIZES MANY OLD TREASURES ARE STILL AVAILABLE IN FLEA MARKETS, EBAY, ETC.(SOME ARE THE SAME AS THE ONES WE ARE USING, SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WERE ORIGINALLY CAST IN LARGE NIMBERS) WE ENCOURAGE OTHERS WHO WISH TO REPRODUCE THEM TO PURCHASE THEIR OWN, REPAIR, RESEARCH AND CAST AS NEEDED.
+
+ UNETHICAL USE +
 PLEASE NOTE: We honor the fact that Equatoria AND Samsara have also  restored, modified, merged and upgraded many of these old and antique pieces offered on our wholesale and retail sites.  (To make them more useful for all of us.) In many cases this brings them into a new catagory and out of public domain. Some now carry copyrights and we recognize and honor them as such. 
+
We trust that no one is abusing this, that these pieces are not being recast and sold as 'exclusive' to another web site, buyer / seller. Please report any abuse to the links below:
EQUATORIA SAMSARA - ROSARYWORKSHOP
+ COPYRIGHTS, TRADEMARKS, SIGNATURES +
We have never nor will we ever remove any copyrights, trademarks or signatures on items before casting them. We recognize that others before us may have done this and that a piece may have been recast several times before reaching us, which is out of our control.
+
+ PUBLIC DOMAIN +
All crucifixes, crosses, rosary centers and medals found and restored by the Rosary Workshop to be hand cast are, to the best of our research and knowledge, from Public Domain - This means they are either too old to trace or have no visible signs of a copyright or trademark on their surface. 
+
We note that if a piece contains the signature of an untraceable artist (recognized to be over 70 (Europe) to 100 years old) we will share this information in respect to their work. +  If at a later date we discover an item does hold a legal copyright or trademark we will either credit the designer in respect of the artist or remove the item from our stock.

~ WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ~

Comments below are from customers and reflect the overall comments we receive daily.  It gives us such great pleasure to know that our ministry is making a difference, even in the midst of rising prices of silver and bronze. The vintage/antique items we cast give them new life and we believe are more beautiful than most of the parts available today.  We are told daily, the parts we have cast do make a powerful difference in the overall rosary and chaplet design.

... the possibilities are endless ...
Hi Margot, thanks for your email. This is only the second order I've placed with you - the first parts I got were SO BEAUTIFUL, and I just love them!! Now I have to make some to sell- I hope I can sell them all and come back for more, as I could easily come up with a thousand different designs with all the various pieces you offer - the possibilities are endless. They are such an inspiration, as is your entire site! One thing I would never have imagined about these bronze pieces until I made a strung rosary with  them, is the beautiful chime sound they make when they brush against the glass beads- it's just heavenly, and really adds to the overall beauty of the rosary.  I just can't say enough- thank you THANK you for offering such lovely quality pieces!!  I can't wait to see my new order in person! Warmest regards,Anne  Y (NC)

... Blessed Sacramentals ...
( have your medals, rosaries and chaplets blessed)
 The most important message here is that blessed objects are powerful sacramentals that ward off evil.  The fellow that drove me to [this case] is 44 years old he pulled a confirmation holy medal out of his wallet and said, 'My grandmother gave me this medal with a four way cross when I was confirmed and the priest blessed it.  You know what I can look back and see evil that was things that could of occurred and did not happen and wondered why.  Well guess I am under an umbrella of spiritual protection thanks to that priest and grandma. Wow!'  Blessings,  Fr. Joe (US)

... opportunity to buy ...
 I LOVE your wonderful crucifixes, etc.  Do you have any plans to offer any new styles any  time soon?  Bless you for giving people the opportunity to buy such incredible things! Tanila Price

Yes, Tanila - check out our new parts, thanks for asking - RW
WHATS NEW

... it was a small order ...
 ... just received the order that I placed for 2 crosses and one center.  Even though it was a small order it was taken care of promptly.  Besides, I am very happy with the quality of the items.  I plan on making a rosary for my granddaughter's first communion and I think that thanks to you it will turn out beautifully. Thank you Josephine

... ready to give up ...
I am so excited about using your designs in the rosary I'm making.   I found your site just about the time I was ready to give up and make something from conventional pieces, which are fine, but just not unusual.  The gift is for a dear friend who is in late stages of cancer and has been blessed with two years more than the doctors anticipated. Your site was yet another gift in this setting.  Please convey my excitement and gratitude to the other guild members for your mission. Sherri G (CO)

... 12 step program? ...
 Thank you so much. Your things are WONDERFUL!!  I am having only one problem - I can't sell any of the rosaries!  I will be planning to sell one and when I finish making it, I look at it and think - no, I want to keep this one.  haha  There needs to be a 12 step program for you guys! haha
Blessings, Tanila P (GA)

... rosarymaking is an addiction ...
Thanks Tanilia - we understand!  We suffer from the same disease -  'rosarymaking is an addiction!'  It is so much fun to make rosaries out of these beautiful pieces from our past.  They make the rosary and worth every penny.  We love using them, too. Blessings, Margot for guild (MI)

... they are just wonderful ...
The silver pieces I ordered from you looked pretty good on the website pages but WOW! Are they beautiful in real life! They are just wonderful. Good job! Thanks again -- Kathy K  (USA)

... continuing the tradition ...
I just received my pieces in the mail and they are more beautiful than I imagined! Thanks! it is so awesome that people crafted such beautiful medals for the glory of God and that you have found them, recast them and continue the tradition!  All the pieces I received are so incredible. thanks again! God bless all of you and keep up the good work! if i lived in Michigan i would be begging to work with you!   Julieann S (USA)

... good taste in design and quality, thank you ...
 I felt the need to  commend you one your work.  I received my order promptly, well packaged, and  containing high quality materials.  I saw the photos on the website but, quite  frankly, I was surprised at the detail and depth of your crucifixes.  As an  architecture student at the University of Arkansas, I appreciate quality which is something that I have found hard to find.  Thank you for your good taste in  design and quality.  Rachel B (UofA)

... tears to my eyes ...
I just received my order of rosary parts.  They bring tears to my eyes they are so lovely.
Thanks again,  Catherine P (USA)

... thanks Father, you make it all worthwhile! ...
I think you have a wonderful website.  I admire the trouble you have gone through to make available reproductions of classical rosary centers and crucifixes. ...  Fr. Stephanos  O.S.B. (CA)

... donated it to our guild ...
Just placed a second order with you.  Italian crucifix set is beautiful -- made a rosary with the set, your directions, aqua vintage beads from a show, donated it to our guild labor of love, and it raised $90 for a family battling Lou Gehrig's disease. Made a second one for my son's first communion next year. Thanks for a wonderful website and inspiration!  Time to make Christmas gifts now ...  Marie B (IL)

 ... thanks for your great inventory ...
I can't wait to see my order... I made a beautiful piece a few months ago with your Infant of Prague center, using rose quartz and iridescent grey pearls -- it was a Baptism gift for my sister's new goddaughter.  It was beautiful!  Thanks for your great inventory, your exquisite taste and your fabulous service ... Nancy N (TX)

... working with such lovely emblems ...
The crosses just arrived.  All I can say is Breathaking!!  They are just perfectly beautiful, and I'm inspired--truly inspired--to be working with such lovely emblems.  I have the rest of my materials laid out, the designs are ready, and I'm going to spend an afternoon and evening of peaceful, contemplative, creative activity as I construct these beautiful aids to prayer.   Anne Madison (MD)

... thank you for these wonderful treasures of faith ...
I can hardly wait to get the Russian crucifixes!!    Everyone who sees the Rosaries with your centerpieces and
 Crucifixes on them remark on how unusual and unique they are.  It's what really hooks them.  I  gave a rosary to one of my priest friends and he particularly loves the Peruvian Angel crx.  Just thought you'd like to know. Thank you for recasting these wonderful treasures of faith.  Denise M  (AZ)

... use your parts exclusively from now on ...
Thanks for the confirm on my parts order. I have decided to use your parts exclusively from now on. They make such a world of difference and I find that the feedback I get from customers who have purchased my rosaries made with your parts are ecstactic!!!!Andrea Z  (NY)

... 'listen to the beads' ...
I've learned to "listen to the beads" from reading the descriptions of your rosaries, how different features  ...  [of a rosary or chaplet] ... Usually it's just the visual/textural appeal of the beads, but it's Divine to feel that surge of Inspiration from time to time! MariaElena K (USA)

... I sold 6 chaplets to a jewelry store ...
I received my order yesterday. Ya'all are really on the ball up there!  The crucifixes and center pieces are wonderful.  Last tuesday, I sold 6 chaplets to a jewelry store and have an appointment at another jewelry store in San Antonio this saturday.  Go God!! Pax Christi ... Paula R (USA)




 WHY SKYROCKETING SILVER PRICES?
"S&P's downgrade of U.S. debt sent investors fleeing from stocks and turning instead to gold and silver."  This has caused these commodities to skyrocket even more to new heights. Silver and Gold simply offer a safer market for investors over the last few years. 
+
These prices were going up and affecting our prices years before the recent S&P credit downgrade.  There are no signs this will stop any time soon as the market continues to fluctuate.  This causes the gram wt / per ounce to soar. And like you we are in shock as the new prices on our silver parts are coming in - often more than doubling over night!
+
OUR PRICING IS DETERMINED BY 
GRAM WT OF METAL AT TIME OF CASTING.
When our caster purchases the raw silver, they pay the current market price by weight.  They pass this price on to us and, sad to say, we in turn must pass it on to our customers. Yes,and the good news is that  the market value is also passed on to each of us. 
+
AN INVESTMENT
YET SELLING BETTER THAN EVER
What continues to amaze us is that our sterling silver vintage and antique pieces are selling better now than ever (even over solid bronze).  In the meantime we can only pray that as the market settles down, so will silver!
+
Please note, we do not change our prices until we have to pay them and honor the prices that show in the cart. We will continue to offer our crucifixes, centers and religious medals in silver and let you decide.
