Rosary Workshop - Handmade Rosaries - Repair
Rosaries seem to fall apart a lot. Hopefully it is from use. We repair many chain rosaries as they are often not well made. The wire we use is very supple and very strong. The results have been astonishing to us as we were not certain how these rosaries would look all beads and no wire even though strung rosaries have a very very long history behind them.

~ ANITRA'S ROSARY ~
BEFORE: ANITRA'S ROSARY IS A SPECIAL SOUVENIR FROM
ROME USING THE 4 MAJOR BASILICAS IT WOULD FALL APART
WHEN SHE PRAYED. AFTER:WE RESTRUNG IT USING GOLDEN
HUES TO ENRICH THE ANTIQUED SILVER METAL ROSEBUDS.
THE CRUCIFIX IS THE ONE CHOSEN BY THE HOLY FATHER.
~ MARY'S ROSARY ~
MEDJUGORGE - ROCKS FROM APPARITION HILL
A very special rosary given to Mary by a friend who visited Medjugorje - but every time she would pray it, it would come apart so she asked us to restring it so she could use it without being concerned about it coming apart. So we did!
HERE IS MARY'S REPAIRED ROSARY
We used faceted silver seed beads for spacers and
a beautiful 4 x 4mm iridescent tube to turn and secure the crimping bead
process. Now a very strong and very useable yet very much like its
original design. The interesting rosebud Paters, crucifix and reliquary
center were not replaced.
~ PETER'S ROSARY ~
A WOODEN ROSARY WITH A HISTORY
came to us strung on a broken white cotton cord. It was knotted between
the decades. One bead was missing so we replaced all Pater beads
with exotic wood and used natural spacers between the Aves. We are very
excited about how it came out. A wonderful way to keep a rosary with special
~ LAURENNE'S ROSARIES ~
I got my rosaries on Saturday. They are so beautiful! You know, when I originally sent you the beads, I was sure that the red one was going to be my favorite. And, it certainly is outstanding, but the clear one has such a subtle beauty that I am totally enamored with it. The many imperfections in the clear beads remind me that Jesus loves me despite my many imperfections. I must say that I could never in a million years have come up with the beautiful combination of beads, centers, and crosses that your workshop put together to make the rosaries. True talent! Thank you so much.
~ DR WEILERT'S ROSARY~
|This precious silver bicone rosary was in need of repair. One bead was crushed so we replaced all the Pater beads. We used an old gold filigree bead and the results astonished us.|
DR WEILERT WROTE:
Praise Jesus! WOW! Thanks! Mom absolutely LOVED her "reconditioned rosary!" She gasped, "This will have to be my 'Sunday rosary' if there is such a thing!" Our Lord has blessed you with a remarkably inspired ministry!
~ KRISTEN'S GARNET ROSARY ~
Dear Tilma Full of Rosaries Guild: I just received the rosary you did for me, and I wanted to express my appreciation on doing such a fine job. It is a true keepsake that I will have the pleasure of enjoying everyday. Thank you and God Bless

When I opened the package, I couldn't believe how beautiful they were - they were more like a work of art than the plain-jane beads I originally set to you. I can't begin to tell you how pleased I was. A thought struck me when I was praying my rosary before the Blessed Sacrament ( and showing them to the Lord) - that those rosaries were like me - and all of us. We come to Our Lady an unstrung sack of ordinary beads and somehow, through the power of the rosary and the grace she obtains for us, she not only restrings us, but makes us into something uniquely beautiful! We are transformed - just as you transformed my rosary. thank you VERY much. I love them!

I am glad that someone is attempting to put these old rosaries back in use. My mother is a very devout Catholic who says the rosary often. Her rosary, while not as old as this one, is well-used and well-loved. When handling rosaries, I often wonder about the person who used to own it. It warms my heart to find an old rosary with its beads worn down to almost nothing...how close to Mary and God that person must have been, who used (and cherished) such a rosary.

"I probably only paid $9 for the rosary several years ago in Italy and it went through the wash a few times in my pockets which didn't help. I really didn't want to deal with chain rosaries and anyway, the beads and I had a history of prayer which meant a lot to me. We had gone through some pretty rugged times together and that is why I chose to have them re-strung instead of throwing them away. Thanks, they really are beautiful. As far as I'm concerned, I have my old rosary back for abut $30. M.P.C. (MI)
