Our Lady Rosary Bracelet Instructions

Rose-colored Swarovski pearls give a lustrous look to this sterling silver rosary bracelet. The chain near the clasp lets you adjust the bracelet to fit different wrist sizes. Make it to wear as a feminine reminder of the importance of prayer.

Step one:
Attach the sterling silver shiny cross charm to the small loop on the 6mm sterling spring ring using a sterling silver open jump ring. String a Swarovski 5810 6mm round pearl in Powder Rose onto a 1 1/2-inch 22-gauge eye pin. Make a simple loop at the end of the pin, forming a simple loop link. For help creating simple loops, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Make links out of the remaining nine 6mm pearls. Attach a link to the small loop on the spring ring. Continue connecting the remaining links to the first link, forming a chain.

Step two:
Cut a short, eight-link section from the sterling silver 054 round link chain. Attach the short section of chain to the last 6mm pearl link. Make a link out of the Swarovski 5810 8mm round pearl in Powder Rose, and attach it to the end of the short chain. Cut a 1 3/4-inch section of chain, and attach it to the other end of the 8mm pearl link.

Step three:
Use jump rings to attach the Virgin Mary rosary center charm to the eight-link section of chain. String the Swarovski 5328 4mm XILION bicone in Crystal onto the 24-gauge 1-inch head pin. Attach the head pin to the bottom of the rosary charm using a wrapped loop. For help making a wrapped loop, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
