|When my oldest sister, who is 5 years older than me,
went off to college, she taught me how to make chain rosaries and gave me her pliers. Years later,
while stationed at an air base in Europe with my husband, I found a lot of time on my hands and began
making rosaries for the missions, both chain and knotted. After we returned stateside, I became highly
involved with various groups and ministries at the local parish and didn't make as many rosaries,
although I was asked to make one or two for people and I made several as gifts.
Since our retirement from the military, we've had many problems with our kids, which have drained
a lot of emotional energy, and we had to work at several part time jobs to make ends meet.
Then around Christmas 2002, I heard about a group of ladies in the parish starting a rosarymaking group.
I joined the group, went to the meetings when I could, and I started making rosaries again.
When I began exploring some of the rosary sites on the internet, I noticed that the price of so many of the rosaries
were far outside the range of what many people, including myself, would be able to pay. The materials
and workmanship were absolutely beautiful and many pieces were truly unique. But the fact remained,
that many people would not be able to afford them. So I started wondering if I could make some unique
rosaries using less expensive materials that would be affordable. I'm not sure how successful I've been
in designing unique rosaries, but I think I've succeeded in making them affordable.
The prices for all the pieces on my webpages covers the cost of materials plus a small amount to pay
myself for my time.
Ten percent of what I pay myself is given to Food for the Poor, Inc., Catholic Relief Services, or used to purchase materials
for mission rosaries
My goal is to provide quality, custom designed, hand made rosaries using less expensive glass,
plastic, wood and other materials, to create beautiful and unique rosaries that will give a lifetime
of service without breaking the piggybank.
I currently have 5-decade rosaries in chain or cord, 1-decade chain bracelets and chaplets,
and 1-decade and 5-decade coil bracelets available. I also have pocket rosaries and pull-rosaries.
Please inquire about sports rosaries with team colors!
All rosaries are shipped in a gift box unless otherwise noted.
Please check back often as I'll be displaying more rosaries as I finish them.
If there is something specific that you're looking for, let me know and I'll try to get it for you.
Custom made rosaries are $20.00 plus the cost of materials.
Custom made bracelets and chaplets are $6.00 plus the cost of materials.
Custom made cord rosaries are $5.00 plus the cost of materials.

My preferred method of payment is through PayPal. However, if you would prefer to pay by personal check,
there are a few things to keep in mind. My policy for personal checks is to mail the order as soon as the
check clears the bank. Also, because of new government regulations, please make the check payable to my legal name,
Teresa G. Rudebusch. Otherwise the bank may not accept it and your order may be delayed.
Mission rosaries are free of charge. Please email me with your request
