Silver Plate Wire Dilemma

Hey Everyone!

So I have run into a bit of a road block, but I think I have found another option. For those who buy rosaries, you know I offer a variety of wire and chain options for almost every budget. Unfortunately due to Covid 19, I can no longer get the European 20 gauge silver plate wire I used for my silver plate upgrades. I have been searching for another option for the last few months but all of the other wires I tried were just too flimsy.

Good news though!! I finally found a supplier who has offered me a smoking deal on silver filled wire. For those who don’t know silver filled is also silver plated over copper, but the silver coating is 10x thicker than normal silver plate which means it will keep its color longer. Once the wire gets here I will update the store with the new pricing. It will probably be $1-$4 more than my old silver plate wire, but still a great option for those on a budget.

As usual, if you have any questions, please let me know.

Take care and stay healthy!

Pictures & New Flat Link Chain

HI Everyone!

I recently found out my manufacturer discontinued the flat link chain I use on my less expensive rosaries. 😦  I can special order more, but the minimums are HUGE!

For now I am experimenting with the next size up. As soon as I am able I will add both options for my custom rosaries, but here is a picture so you can see the difference. They are very close in size, but the new stuff has a thicker look to it and is slightly larger. Once I add this option to the store I will take a better picture next to beads so you can see how they look. As always if you have questions please let me know. 🙂

Take care,
Phyllis 🙂
