Catholic rosary question

I have over a dozen rosaries. I pray on them hard and I keep breaking them. Anyone know of an extra heavy duty rosary maker? I have a few cord ones but I don't like the way the beads keep moving. With links the beads stay reasonably stable. I have a slew of retired rosaries that are just sitting on my dresser.

  • Try www.etsy.com for something handmade and good quality. If you can't find a shop that carries them by searching, you can visit the forum and request that someone help you find them OR click on "custom" and make your own listing describing what you want and someone will bid on it to do the work for you.

    Good luck :-)

  • Can you make one yourself out of a leather chord by tying knots?  I did this for my brother one year for X-mas...used 3 nails bound together for the cross part...and his priest was willing to bless it...

  • I was at an NCYC (National Catholic Youth Conference) when I was younger and was tought how to make a Rosary with a thick cord. You use knots and it's quite beautiful. It does take some time to make, but it's more special because you crafted it with your own hands.
