Dakota Rosary Works is a Catholic family business located in South Dakota. We are dedicated to creating quality, artistic rosaries in an effort to help others become closer to Jesus through meditation on His life, and the help of His Mother’s intercession.
We specialize in natural stones, hand cast bronze and sterling reproduction pieces with the strength and durability of professional jeweler's wire. Combined with artistry and superb craftsmanship, we bring you beautiful heirloom quality rosaries and jewelry! We provide numerous rosary designs for you to choose from. If you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, let us know. We are more than happy to work with you to create that one-of-a-kind custom designed rosary. We specialize in flex-wire or strung rosaries. If you prefer the more traditional chain or linked rosary, we are happy to accommodate you. However, remember that linked rosaries are not nearly as durable as a flex-wire rosary.
Dakota Rosary Works produces heirloom quality rosaries that will last for generations. The beads used in these rosaries are individually inspected to ensure the highest quality. Our rosaries are handcrafted using a large variety of beads including stone, as well as handmade lampworked glass, handmade sterling beads, fiber optic, Swarovski Crystal, and olive wood which is imported directly from the Holy Land. The crucifix and center pieces are chosen from sterling silver, gold filled, bronze, or nickel silver. You will find many hand cast reproductions of vintage pieces in bronze and silver.
This online catalog contains a selection of handcrafted flex-wire rosaries, one-decade rosaries, and rosary bracelets. Flex-wire rosaries are strung on professional quality jeweler’s wire. The wire used in these rosaries is made by combining 49 strands of stainless steel cable with a nylon coating. This cable is only .019 inch thick yet has a 26 pound test strength. These rosaries offer more design possibilities since decorative beads are used to fill in the spaces between the beads. The seed beads chosen for your rosary may vary from the picture shown. This will make your rosary as unique as it is beautiful.
Flex-wire rosaries remain supple and extremely flexible. They easily “fold up” for storage in a rosary case. These rosaries are securely crimped with a scrimp bead and set-screw at each connecting point to ensure extreme durability. Our rosaries have proven to not come apart. Nevertheless, all rosaries come with a lifetime restringing guarantee if a failure in workmanship should occur. Breaking due to rough treatment can be repaired for a small fee. We recommend that rosaries be carried in a case to protect them from unnecessary wear. We are unable to give full refunds for custom work; however, we make every attempt to satisfy our customers, allowing exchanges!
We do not share your customer information, including your email address, and our website is secure! So, no worries! Whatever your interest, we can find a color and style of bead and pair them with your chosen crucifix and center for that special rosary. We hope you enjoy our rosaries and use them often!
