My mission in creating MHR has three parts: to offer quality handmade rosaries; to encourage prayer, and to share what I've learned of this craft with others who would like to make rosaries in a similar style.
I've organized this site along those lines, plus a fourth area of resources where you may find the MHR Boutique of bronze wire, rings and more, plus favorite suppliers and other external links. Each of these four sections has an overview hub from which to navigate. Because MHR will be building for some time yet, please look for what's new in the overviews by clicking on the four pictured catagories above.
Each handmade rosary and chaplet in our rosary catalogue is one of a kind, made with embellished semi-precious and other fine material beads on a structure of heavy gauge wire. My intention here is to design rosaries that look great and stand the test of time. Rosaries are treasured in families from one generation to the next, and I try to honor that for you with quality workmanship.
All prayer and spiritual reading materials are organized into the library. If you need to learn how to pray the rosary, are looking for novenas or prayers to use with chaplets, the Library is the place to go. Also here are writings of the Saints, literature and other pages included to encourage spiritual thought and prayer.
To learn how to wire loop beads and make chained Catholic rosaries, please visit the construction section. These pages are very detailed, with information and charts on bead sizes and counts per strand, drill holes, wire gauges, sizing ring caps and bead caps--and how to make all of that work together in handmade rosaries of your very own.
Thank you so kindly for your interest and your patience as MHR grows.
