Q.
I want to attempt to make a rosary. I recently bought rosary pliers. Is there a particular way to use them? They don't come with instructions, and I couldn't find any tutorials on this. I have a basic idea on how to use them, but there may be an easier way.

Rosary pliers combine the versatility of round nose-pliers and side-cutters. The round-nose jaws of the pliers is used for making loops and curves. The side-cutter, found below the round-nose jaws, is used for cutting the wire onto which the beads are strung.

Reference the illustrated project on rosary construction in ''Rosary with Czech Pressed Glass Beads and Antiqued Pewter Cross Pendant.''
