A rosary is one of the most popular and well-known Catholic devotional objects. Many people are surprised to learn that rosaries are not just simple strings of beads. There is a wide variety of rosary-making supplies available to make your unique rosary.
You can make a rosary kit to help your spiritual or healing journey, create rosaries for your loved ones as gifts, or give them a kit with instructions so that they can make a spiritual cord for prayers.
If you’re looking to make rosaries, here are the parts needed.
Cross or Crucifix
The most important part of any rosary kit is the crucifix - it is used to pray to God. This is the sign of the cross that Jesus Christ was crucified on and is the centerpiece of the rosary. Crucifixes are usually made of wood or metal and can be found at most religious supply stores.
We have an array ofcrucifixes to choose from on our site. You can find many types made using different materials like wood, metal, gold, or even glass. The size of the crucifix also varies. You can go for a small one to make it easy to carry around.
The next important part of the rosary kit is the beads. The beads are usually made of glass, wood, or metal and come in a variety of colors and sizes. There are even colorful pony beads and gold beads. Most rosaries have 54 beads, but there are also smaller versions with fewer beads.
We also have a great selection ofrosary beads, including father beads, that you can use to make your own rosary. You can choose from a variety of our rosary supplies, from colors, sizes, and materials.
Our olive wood beads come with a knotting and threading tool to make your knots in the rosary-making process easier. The beads are a natural light to medium brown color with some darker streaks.
Rosary Connector Medal
Another part of the rosary kit is the centerpiece. This is usually a medal or image of blessed Mary, another saint, the sacred heart, or the Holy Trinity. The centerpiece is attached to the crucifix on the cord and helps to remind us who we are praying to. It's one of the most important rosary supplies in rosary kits if you're giving them as a gift.
Other Rosary Supplies
If this is your first time creating a rosary, you will need the following rosary supplies and tools.
Wires or Headpins
You will need wires or headpins to string your cord rosaries. You can buy supplies at most craft stores, or online. Look for a chain or necklace size that is comfortable for you to work with.
Jump rings are small metal rings that are used to attach two pieces of jewelry. They come in a variety of sizes and metals, but the most common size for rosary making is 4mm. These should also be a part of your kits. You will also need two pairs of pliers to open and close the jump rings in the chain.
Making rosaries is a special way to connect with your faith and the process of creating each bead and linking them together is meditative. As you work on making the necklaces of the rosary, you'll likely find yourself deep in prayer to God.
