Rosary Repair - Irish Horn Rosary by Unbreakable Rosaries

I recently had the pleasure of repairing an Irish Horn rosary.  Irish Horn rosaries were unique to (surprise!) Ireland.  They were made between the 1800s to the 1970s and were sold as souvenirs.  The beads have the look and feel of resin or plastic, but are actually made of animal horns.  The one in the photos was previously constructed with chain links and the client requested I completely re-do it with wire-wrapping.

Do you have a favorite rosary that needs some tlc?  Check out my rosary repair link at
