This delicate bracelet-style rosary makes a wonderful gift for first a communion or other religious holiday. Its soft peach pearls combined with a hint of sparkle make it fashionable enough for a girl at any age.
Thread one TierraCast antique silver 5mm coiled heishi spacer, one Swarovski 7mm round pearl in Peach and another spacer onto one sterling silver 1 ½-inch, 22 gauge eye pin. Finish the open end with a simple loop. Repeat this step nine more times.
Connect all of the eye pins together to form a chain. Attach one 1.27x7.0mm sterling silver open jump ring to one end of this chain. Watch our Handy Tip video to learn how to open and close a jump ring if you need help.
Thread one 10mm Beadelle silver-plated crystal AB round pavé bead onto an eye pin and finish with a simple loop. Connect it to the open end of the chain you created in Step two.
Cut approximately ½ an inch of silver-plated oval and beads link chain. Connect it to the open loop of the Beadelle eye pin. Attach the sterling silver satin finish Virgin Mary charm, the sterling silver satin finish crucifix charm and the 15x8mm silver-plated trigger clasp to its own 0.90x4.60mm sterling silver open jump ring. Connect the charms to the middle of the chain and the trigger clasp to the end of the chain.
