Blue Crystal Rosary Bead Design
Want to make your own rosary? Use this rosary design with blue crystal beads as inspiration to make a rosary you will fall in love with!
This beautiful rosary has a 23 inch necklace and is 22 inches long (maybe more like 30 inches long).
I made it using silver plated eyepins, 6mm round dark blue AB crystals, 6mm round white crackle beads and 6mm light blue crystal disks.
I was asked by one of my co-workers who had seen my handmade bracelets whether I could make her a rosary.
Not being Catholic, I had no idea where to start, so I googled and found your website along with hundreds of pictures of rosaries.
I still had no clue of how many beads to use and what the rules were for rosaries, so I went to another one of my co-workers who I knew was Catholic and she gave me a lesson in rosaries.
The design came straight from my heart. All my co-worker asked of me was if I could use blue crystals as blue is her favorite color.
This rosary was the result! I am rather proud of the fact that this was my absolute first attempt at making rosaries, but when the gals in the office saw it, they all want one too!!!
