ANTIQUED BONE DISCS
/ HAND CARVED PATERS
It would be wonderful to be able to produce a disc rosary as imaged below from the 15c. But these discs were laced or woven onto a circular leather cord making them difficult - but not impossible - to reproduce today. Division beads (Paters) designated each decade. Origin seems to be Germany and from information we have received, they were made and used up through the 19c.

PSALM 16:1-7
  1 Keep me safe, O God; in you I take refuge 2  I say to the Lord, you are my Lord, you are my only good.  3  Worthless are all the false gods of the land. Accursed are all who delight in them. 4  They multiply their sorrows who court other gods. Blood libations to them I will not pour out, nor will I take their names upon my lips.  5  LORD, my allotted portion and my cup, you have made my destiny secure.  6  Pleasant places were measured out for me; fair to me indeed is my inheritance. 7  I bless the LORD who counsels me; even at night my heart exhorts me ...

.. 8  I keep the LORD always before me; with the Lord at my right, I shall never be shaken.  9  Therefore my heart is glad, my soul rejoices; my body also dwells secure, 10  For you will not abandon me to Sheol, nor let your faithful servant see the pit. 11  You will show me the path to life, abounding joy in your presence, the delights at your right hand forever.

WORKING WITH
RARE COMPONENTS
Working with rare components does make a difference in the finished design. Crucifixes, rosary centers and religious medals cast from antiques in sterling and bronze along with hard to find antique beads (or those inspired by them) do make the difference. But most of all, it is in the way a designer chooses to put it all together. These old rosaries and chaplets from the 16 - 19c speak to the heart in a special way, regardless if they were put together by an artist or by a guild - or simply by someone who took what they had, such as a necklace, and strung it into a prayer chain. These early results are so beautiful that they are now resting in museums all over Europe. And as so many of you have said, 'they invite you to prayer'.



ROSARY WORKSHOP 
MISSION STATEMENT
Our vision is to provide the finest handmade rosaries, chaplets and other fine religious art forms for personal worship we can make using the best supplies available.  The Guild believes the work of our hands should give visual Glory to God, therefore for us, the best for you is very, very important.
