Sacred Heart Rosary Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Floral detailing and rich tones give this rosary an ornate appearance. Make this rosary as a hand-crafted gift for a friend who shares your faith, or use it yourself for daily prayers and mediations. It is created using simple stringing techniques and can be made in less than an hour. This rosary can be altered to incorporate a crucifix instead of a simple cross charm, if desired.

Step one:
Attach a 6-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to the TierraCast® antique silver floral cross charm using a sterling 2x2mm crimp tube. String a spacer pattern onto the wire using the following beads: a TOHO™ 11/0 transparent medium round topaz bead, a 3mm amethyst druk bead, topaz TOHO™, amethyst druk, topaz TOHO™, amethyst druk and a topaz TOHO™.

Step two:
String an 8mm orange and purple fire-polished bead, a topaz TOHO™, an amethyst druk, topaz TOHO™, a 6mm cat's eye round bead in dark purple, topaz TOHO™, cat's eye, topaz TOHO™, cat's eye, topaz TOHO™, amethyst druk, topaz TOHO™ and a fire-polished bead. String the spacer pattern used in step one. Attach the end of the wire to the bottom of the TierraCast® antique silver Our Lady link using a crimp tube.

Step three:
Attach a 24 1/2-inch piece of jewelry wire to one of the top loops on the Our Lady link using a crimp tube.

String the spacer pattern. Add a cat's eye bead and a topaz TOHO™. Repeat nine times.
String a cat's eye bead, the spacer pattern and a fire-polished bead.

Step four:
Repeat the pattern in step three 3 times. Repeat the pattern in step three a fourth time, omitting the fire-polished bead at the end. Attach the wire to the last loop of the Our Lady link using a crimp tube.
