My craft supplies are getting out of control, so I have been trying to think up projects to destash. Going through my beads a few weeks ago, I noticed that I had a bunch of rosary findings. Then I went through my glass and gemstone beads and sorted them into groups of 59. The only thing missing were the jump rings, eyepins, and chain...had to order those. But, I was able to put together kits to use up all my rosary findings and most of my gemstone beads.

It has been a nice keep-your-hands-busy project to do while watching Netflix after the kids are in bed. And, they'll make good gifts.

These are the first five I've completed out of the group.

Blue glass and Swarovski crystals


Lepidolite


Jasper


Amethyst/Aquamarine/Rose Quartz (this one's mine - it's my sons' birthstones + rose quartz, the love stone)


Green glass






Thanks for looking!

The rosaries are beautiful!  What do you plan on doing with them?

 Those are very pretty. I think my favorites are the purple one and the grey one (2nd & 3rd photos). They are all great though. Wonderful idea for using up stash.

Thank you!

I'm keeping the one with my sons' birthstones, but the others will probably be gifts.

I finished nine more rosaries and have run out of groups of beads, but not findings...so, I will probably order beads for the remaining two rosaries I have pieces for.









Rutilated quartz/amethyst/fluorite


Smoky quartz


Carnelian/rutilated quartz


Green aventurine/rutilated quartz/fluorite


Lapis Lazuli/howlite/lepidolite


Labradorite/rose quartz/aquamarine


AB crystal


Citrine/rutilated quartz


Labradorite/howlite/amethyst/rose quartz/green aventurine/aquamarine/smoky quartz/fluorite (basically everything that was leftover)
