Does anyone have some good directions on how to make a Rosary? Does any
of the normal bead sources also sell the crucifixes and medals that are

If you're near LA, go visit Bohemian Crystal. Was just there yesterday
and bugging them again about making a catalog. They sell all the stuff
for making rosaries, and are known for their Swarovski crystal beads.
They do mail order.
You can link your Rosary with simple loops. Your pattern is l0 main
beads, one jump ring, one spacer bead, one jump ring, then repeat this
sequence 3 more times. Then finish with 10 main beads again. Connect the
two ends with 2 jump rings on each side. Make a sequence of 5 more beads,
attach one end to your crucifix, and the other end to the 2 jump rings.
