WHAT IS CONSIDERED AN UNBREAKABLE ROSARY?
As you look through the photos of the various sacramentals you will notice that most stones are completely wrapped in either silver or bronze. There are no open loops anywhere. The loops at the end of each bead are double wrapped so they will not come apart. Unbreakable Rosaries are guaranteed to never come apart under normal use. However, dropping the sacramental on a hard surface may crack the stones. You should always take great care of devotional items.

Custom Design Rosaries and Rosary Chaplets
ATTENTION! My dear friends,
Sterling silver has been increasing in price rapidly for the past number of years. Silver is not only used for jewelery (and in my case rosaries) but also in the industrial market. Silver is also now being horded or purchased for investment purposes the same as gold. For example- a crucifix I used to be able to purchase for $18.00 is now $35.00. My prices for devotional items is increasing based on the market value. Copper which is also used in bronze has been increasing in price for the past couple of years as it is mostly used in the industrial arena. I am not alone in this arena as many of my fellow rosary makers are faced also with the rising prices. All of my medals, crucifixes, rosary centers and various connector embellishments are made in America which I am proud to offer. I thank all my clients of the past and future clients for their patronage.
I generally have a number of different rosaries and rosary chaplets for sale on EBAY and ETSY. However there are those that have something special in mind. I will custom make a rosary or rosary chaplet just for you. A unique one-of–a-kind devotional sacramental. It is important to understand that all of my sacramentals are custom designed., however, they are custom designed by me…here’s an opportunity for you to get involved., and actively participate in the design of YOUR devotional item.
It could be for yourself or someone special for a Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, Wedding Couple, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Birthday, Lent, Easter, Christmas, etc.
It can be a lot of fun and you may enjoy this unique opportunity.
NOTE: As you look through the various devotional items I have listed on ETSY, EBAY and look at the examples on my BLOG it is important to note that these listings do not necessarily mean they can be DUPLICATED. If the materials and components are available I could certainly do that and would. However- these are meant to be examples and thought provoking for ideas of custom designing a devotional item just for you. I Hope that helps to further understand the concept of a custom designed piece. If you find something you like- we can discuss how we can proceed to attempt to accomplish the same goal.
How does it work and what I need to know to begin:
First I need to know what price range you would be interested in- Provide a price range.
Second- choose the medal- Copper, Bronze or Sterling Silver.
Third- a particular stone or stone colors that you like.
Fourth- Are you interested in a 5 decade rosary or a particular rosary chaplet- if a rosary chaplet please specify which chaplet by name.
Once I have that information I will send you photos of various stones, and some choices for centers, medals, or crucifixes that I think would be particularly suited for this sacramental and fit well with your price range.
Once you decide what you like best- I will put together an Our Father bead and a few Ave beads, show the center, crucifix and/or medal – send photos and you can review, change, etc.. until you are satisfied with the choices you have made. Based on your choices and possible upgrades selected by you may require reexamination of the original price quote.
You do need to understand that this could take some time- especially if I have to find particular stones and/or I am out of stock of something in particular. Most of my stones come from Australia, Africa, etc., and it can take time to receive them.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION- YOU MUST AGREE TO THE TERMS
1. After we agree on a final design and price - A 50% down payment is required before I begin.
2. There are “absolutely no returns or refunds” on custom designed devotionals.
3. I pay for first class shipping. Insurance is required and will be billed to you. Please note that the U.S Postal Service will not insure items to various foreign countries. If this is the case and you still want to purchase the item you must accept the responsibility for non-delivery. No refund for non-delivery.
If you think you would be interested in a custom designed sacramental, you can contact me at the following email address: email@example.com.
Send as many questions as you would like- as I am always ready to assist. Only serious clients are asked to respond.

Exactly What is a Chaplet?
The term Chaplet is used commonly to designate Roman Catholic prayer forms which use prayer beads, but are not necessarily related to the Rosary. Some of these chaplets have a strong Marian connotation, others are more directly related to Jesus or the Saints. Chaplets are considered "personal devotionals," and there is no set form and therefore they vary considerably. While the usual five decade rosary may be referred to as a chaplet, often chaplets have fewer beads than a traditional rosary and a different set of prayers.
Common Chaplets include:
· Chaplet of Divine Mercy, using ordinary rosary beads of five decades.
There exists a renewed interest in various forms of the Rosary which in fact have little to do with the classical rosary prayer itself. The term used commonly to designate these prayer forms is chaplet, probably because of their use of the beads. Some of these chaplets have a strong Marian connotation, others are more directly related to some saints. Not all of these variants of the authentic rosary are based on solid theology and devotional practice.
There are many beautiful and very powerful chaplets that can be prayed for different groups of people or occasions. Generally they are prayed on a full set of Rosary beads and all can be prayed on a set of just ten prayers beads.
There is something very special about praying a chaplet in a group, no matter how small. Remember Jesus telling us that whever two or more are gathered in His name He is there with us also. Comforting isn't it? Here's another thought to comfort us too. We all have a guardian angel, appointed to us at the moment of our conception and every time we pray we are actually praying in the company of our guardian angel! So we are never alone in prayer.
