Men's Crucifix Rosary Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
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.
Step one: 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.
Step two: 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.
Step three: Attach each open end of the druk links strand to the top loops of the Virgin Mary and angels Rosary center charm.
Step four: 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.
Step five: Attach the sterling silver ornate crucifix charm to the end of the strand from step four using a sterling silver open jump ring.
