I just finished making my grandma's rosary.



I spelled out all her children's names in the rosary beads which wasn't a small task getting all ten names in the five sections. I put two names in each section of the decades, no spaces. Small hematite balls were placed on each side of the letter and heart cube beads on the headpin. Extra chain was used to separate the five sections.

I know she is just going to love it. I'm happy with how it turned out. My husband said he's jealous and wants one with our kids' names. So do I!

What a beautiful gift for her!  It will mean a lot. Also, such different names...I like how you separated them without making it so obvious.  Good design!

I should make some for my nieces with their grandparents' names on them!

Thanks for sharing...
