The masculine color palette of this timeless Rosary is ideal as a gift for the man in your life. Use it during Easter, first communions or during times of prayer.
Thread each 6mm and 8mm jet druk bead onto its own 1 1/2-inch sterling silver 22 gauge eye pin and finish with a simple loop technique. This will create simple loop links for each bead.
Connect ten 6mm druk links together, followed by one 8mm druk link. Repeat this process three more times and then attach ten additional 6mm druk links. You now have a strand of 54 druk links.
Attach each open end of the druk links strand to the top loops of the Virgin Mary and angels Rosary center charm.
Connect one 8mm druk link to three 6mm druk links and finish with one more 8mm druk link. You should now have a strand of 5 druk links. Attach this strand to the bottom loop of the Rosary center using a sterling silver open jump ring.
Attach the sterling silver ornate crucifix charm to the end of the strand from step four using a sterling silver open jump ring.
