My spouse is converting this next Easter. I want to make him a rosary for this event. I would like to make a practice one first to see if I can do it. I am not the most gifted person w/ my hands. If that goes well, I’d like to make a really nice one w/ sterling silver centerpiece and crucifix and some nice beads. But as I said, I want to make a cheap practice one first.
I have looked around at rosary kits but am a bit confused as to what to get.
I want some kind of strong chain/wire to hold it together. I don’t want him to not use it for fear it may break. Which is the best material for this–wire, chain, etc??
Is it hard to bend the wire or attach to the chain?
I see that they have various types of pliers. What kind(s) do I need?
Some sets have smaller beads between the main beads. I’d ratheer not have this. Does this mean I should get chain/wire/some other connector?
Sorry to ask so many questions. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
