While at a craft show recently, someone was looking at the rosaries I had for sale. She asked me if I do repairs or restringing. The answer is YES! I have made repairs, replaced lost beads, and restrung rosaries to keep them looking new (or old, depending on the look you’re going for). In time, the metal gets brittle, beads get lost, loops come apart and the rosaries get dirty and sticky with years of use. A good cleaning and refreshing helps to keep the rosary intact for years to come.
Here are before and after pictures of the rosary I remade for her, using her beads and rosary center, new wire and a new crucifix (her old one was missing Jesus and you can’t very well be missing Jesus when praying the rosary). The rosary had belonged to her mother who recently passed away, so it definitely held sentimental value, but she also wanted it to be updated. I used bright silver wire components to freshen it up from the old antique gold ones, but I can also do my best to duplicate what is there if you don’t want the look to change.
Please contact me if you have a rosary that you would like to have repaired, redone or need parts replaced. We can discuss what needs to be done, how much it will cost and the time frame to complete.
