Our ultimate goal is that you find what you would like whether we carry it or not, and to that end we are happy to include contact information for these fine businesses and organizations. If you can't find what you seek, though, please do let us know. We have some excellent resources and are happy to help in any way that we can.
Following is a brief introduction to each along with a link to their web site. If you do make a purchase from them, be sure to tell them that you were referred by The Rosary Shop (we don't get any 'kickback,' but are just trying to spread good will).
(Please do not write to us asking us to include your organization in this list unless it is a fully-fledged company with at least one full-time worker providing at least 100 line items primarily for rosary makers. If you do not meet these qualifications but would like us to provide a link to you, please provide a link to The Rosary Shop. Our server will automatically detect its use and add you to our reciprocal link database system.)
Lewis and Company
Lewis and Company has been around for quite some time. When The Rosary Shop (then Handmade Rosaries) began in 1996, Lewis and Company and Our Lady's Rosary Makers were pretty much the only known rosary parts suppliers in the USA, but worked exclusively through a mail order-style business model. We brought that model to the Internet (or vice-versa). Since then, Lewis and Company has developed an attractive-looking web site presenting their array of rosary parts and supplies. Lewis and Company carries a number of inexpensive medals, centers and crucifixes similar to those found at The Rosary Shop. They also have a sterling series manufactured by McVan/Chapel which they provide at a very competitive price (we purposefully do not carry much McVan/Chapel products, so you will need to see Lewis and Company for these).
Our Lady's Rosary Makers (OLRM) specializes in providing missions rosary supplies; plastic beads, centers, crucifixes and bonded nylon cord. If you wish to spin out missions rosaries, they are simply the most economical source we know. OLRM also carries several items from the McVan/Chapel line in sterling at prices so low that we're not quite sure how they do it and remain operational.
Rosary Workshop does the best job of any company we know in terms of the visual presentations of their rosaries. As we understand it they work with a casting company that provides a number of unique crucifixes and centers in brass and silver. They specialize in refined flex wire rosaries.
