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.
