Beads 2020

** Note - this page is going to be updated soon for 2021 **

This page is all about our beads.  Many people ask where we buy our beads because they are very hard to find in craft stores.  The reason they can't be found in the craft stores is because we have our beads custom made in our military inspired colors exclusively for Rugged Rosaries┬«.  Most of our beads are made of a strong acrylic resin, which has proven much more resistant to breakage than wooden beads and lighter in weight than metal alloy. These are not the inexpensive "pony" beads you used in Boy Scouts.

If you want a bead with the feel of highly sanded wood, then you should pick something which uses our matte black, brown, red, or blue beads. If you like the look of well worn metal, then you should choose our antique metallic colors in either brass (bronze) or copper. The glossy black or gun metal silver beads will give you a fresher look. 

The skull beads which we use on our Memento Mori Rosaries are made of steel alloy with antiqued plated baked on colors. 

If you like the heavier feel of an all-metal bead, you should select one of our metal bead choices. They are smaller than the original resin beads, and so a rosary made with these beads is more compact, and not always long enough to wear around your neck, depending on the rosary style. They are heavy!

Metal beads: 

We do NOT sell the beads separately. Thank you for understanding.
