“RubberT's Rosary-Daughter”

Description from RubberT aka Plucky Chick: Picture of the LB Madagascar Carnelian doesn't do it justice--no fault of the photographer, it is just hard to capture the bright fire coloring of the stone! I am using a tiny bit of yellow turquoise, which is the mom's birthstone.

    I’ve been wanting to make a rosary. Are you using a chain between the beads? Did you get supplies from a rosary store. I love the colors…I’ll keep thinking.

    My first one I used a wire-wrapping technique, but it was a few years ago and I wasn’t happy with my wire-wrapping skill. So the next three I used flex-wire and I liked them better. I ordered rosary supplies on-line because I couldn’t find what I wanted anywhere in a store. I was happy with my order and the selection they offered. Haven’t ordered yet for the ones I am making now.

    I’ll post the website when I finally order. I will post pics of the ones I have made, but I gave them away, so I will have to get my daughter and nieces to send me a pic!!

    RTomato I don’t think that I could do the wire-wrapping type very well. Plus, I like the looseness of the chain between the stations when I’m holding the rosary.

    Sorry, don’t have any ideas at this time, but I’ll think on it for awhile, and let you know!!!

    Interesting! I felt like the wire wrapped one I made tangled too easily. Some day I will do another one and see if I can make it smoother. Have you looked at sample pics on line?

    RT I’ve looked at some online pics…but I’m not sure that I could do it..It seems like it would tangle easily.

    A Golke, I did like your “Across the Border” fresh pic, so I added it to my favorites. That’s kind of what I am going for.

    Hmm..I tried to post a website to the wire-wrapped photo and instructions on making a chain rosary, but it wouldn’t let me. website is rosarymakersguide then dot org

    just trying to give credit to the pic!

    LOL I have a feeling I am way too familiar with your hundreds of picks at the moment. Wonder why? Could it be your eggs-ellent tastes?

    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Oh, don’t even go there, I still have’nt eaten an egg!!!lol… So, your trying for a Mexican look!!??!

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    No, I just want it to blend. The mom likes red. I think I want to stay away from black, even though black looks good. I want colorful!

    My daughter “accidently” boiled an extra dozen eggs, so we are trying to eat 3 dozen eggs in the next few days! Tuna salad yesterday, potato salad today…

    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Are’nt the Citrine side drilled nuggets kind of big??? I like 2, 3, and 4 together more!! Have you, used chain in-between the beads, before??

  17. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    You have my sympathy!!! I don’t have to make Eastr eggs til Sat. We have our get together a week after!!! Maybe by then I can face them!!!lol…

    That’s “Easter” not Eastr!!! DAH…

    I bought the Citrine over a year ago, way before I knew about Limabeads! They are the color of the nuggets, but much smaller, about 12mm. I bought the darker,smaller citrine from Limabeads, along with the others in the pick, except for the poppy jasper..which I am thinking about buying for this project. I have picked out other possibilites, just can’t decide!!!!

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    I think for design would like to use 10-12mm large bead (turquoise for one, light citrine for the other) with dark citrine on either side. Need to get turquoise on the citrine rosary somehow. Would use 6-8mm beads (don’t know what kind) with tiny beads in between (don’t know what kind).

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    It does take time sometimes! The one I am making for my daughter and friend is coming together beautifully!

  23. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Those colors would be perfect, since the yellow citrine is the right size!! I like the red crazy lace or poppy jasper for the smaller beads!! What do you think??

  24. No Photo
    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Red crazy lace seemed too light. I will have to use it for something else (oh, darn, LOL). Since I will have to order the poppy jasper, I could order anything..garnet, madagascar carnelian, canadian jade.. I will update the pick and see what you think. Thanks, by the way. I will understand if you tire of giving your opinion!

    Ha! Maybe I should order one strand of everything and then decide! augh!

    have you tried tiger eye with the citrine and turquoise. the citrine rondelles should make the yellow pop in the tiger eye. And I do love the contrast of brown and turquoise.

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Thanks, Jeannes Gems! That does sound good! I will give it a try!

    I read the rosary dilema earlier today and sympathized with you. this time last year, I offered to make one for my nephew for his First Holy Communion. I took a class in wire, because I was shakey with manipulating nice smooth loops (quite the beginner – especially so last spring) – I tried and tried – I finally was so embarassed and frustrated that I bought him a pretty one with his birthstone (Amethyst) & SS.
    Good Luck with that.

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Ah! I will have to get my daughter to send me a pic of the amethyst one I made for her a few years ago! I struggled and struggled, but was happy with the way it finally turned out!

    I changed the title and the stones. What was originally “RubberT’s Rosary Challenge is now RubberT’s Rosary-Daughter. I changed the description also. Thanks, everyone, for the input!!
