(Video) How to make a rosary: step by step instructions

It's very easy to make a rosary. All you need are the basic tools, which are:
  • 59 beads (6mm or 8mm) 
  • Eye-pins (16mm for 6mm beads or 20mm for 8mm beads, I also found 18mm eye-pins are also useful for both type of beads.)
  • 1 crucifix (about 4-5.5cm in length)
  • 1 rosary centre
  • 3 jump rings (for the rosary centre, 5mm Open Jump Rings, or 6mm split rings) plus an extra jump/or split ring for the crucifix
  • Chain or pre-cut chain (about 4 chain links, 3x2mm)
  • 1 rosary pliers
A beginner may take up to 3 hours to make a rosary, but after a few goes, it will only take about 1 hour to make one rosary from my personal experience. If you are making it with Swarovski crystals, I suggest the 5000 type beads.
