Hello! I am not Catholic but I want to make a pocket rosary for someone who is. I've found a ton of instructions on how to make a regular rosary, but none for the pocket rosary, also called a single decade rosary. I started to make one with probably 9mm beads and there is no way it would be big enough to wear like a bracelet unless I put a lot of chain between the beads and the medallion. So here are my questions:
1. Is is meant to be worn like a bracelet or just slipped over a few fingers?
2. If it is meant to be worn like a bracelet, is there a standard length of chain that you are supposed to use between the beads and the medallion in the middle?
3. Do you have to use a crucifix or can you use any pretty cross?
4. Does the medallion in the middle have to have something specific on it? Like the Virgin Mary?
Thanks a bunch! Here is a pic of something similar to what I'm trying to make.
