Making catholic rosaries is a great hobby to have. First you will need some supplies. You will need a crucifix, a centerpiece, 59 beads, wire, and a pair of pliers. You may want to watch a few videos on how to do this so that you have something to look at as an example. Make sure you use a pair of small needle nose pliers with round teeth. This allows you to make round loops for your rosary. This is important to promote uniformity and quality in your rosary.This is important if you intend to sell your rosaries. Remember that you need to pay careful attention to the quality of your product.
For making catholic rosaries, you will need a crucifix pendant. For most rosaries. 1 1/2 inch or 1 3/4 inch crucifixes are just the right size. They come in a variety of materials such as wood, glass and varying types of metals. The metal crucifixes are easy to buy in bulk if you intend to make several rosaries. Metal crucifixes can be oxidized to look like silver so that you can get a nice look but don’t have to spend several dollars as if you were buying silver. Some crucifixes come with their own jump rings if you do not want to make your own.
centerpieces are an important part of catholic rosaries. They add a great deal of character to the piece. Many centerpieces are made of solid silver if you are looking for something really nice. But there are also centerpieces with full color pictures in them. These look very nice even though they tend not to be made of such valuable materials. I prefer the colored one’s myself. Some centerpieces come with jump rings if you don’t want to make your own. This can save you some time if you aren’t very good at making jump rings or you simply don’t want to do it.
Your pliers will determine a lot about how your catholic rosaries look. Some pliers are easier to make larger loops with while others are more useful for smaller ones. You should consider buying your pliers at a store near you instead of online because this give you a chance to find a pliers that fits your grip nicely. You cannot truly appreciate this until you make several rosaries. So it is a good idea to invest into your pliers because they will be your most used tool.
