I'd like to make a rosary, using either wood or glass round beads. What kind of chain do I use? I've never worked with chain before.
Rosaries are typically created by adding a bead to a length of wire and finishing the ends with a simple loop, or by adding a bead to an eyepin and finishing it with a simple loop. Either way, you create a double simple loop beaded element which can be linked to other double simple loop elements, creating your own beaded chain, or a rosary.
If you're not familiar with creating simple loops and double simple loop elements, review the free illustrated instructions as well as a how-to video to explain how this is done (link below).
