    Oh the beaded link – I love this look but it definately takes time and patience. My fingers always end up tired after doing link after link after link! This is lovely.

    Thank you, Leigh D. I remember when I made this it took a total of about 7 hours to put together (I did it over 2 days). Definitely a finger/wrist workout!

    Wow! I attempted the wire wrap technique on my first rosary. It is hard! You did a great job. I would like to try it again; you inspire me!

    You are all so very kind and wonderful! I do enjoy wire wrapping. Sometimes it is almost like a trance while I’m doing it. I believe I got the charms and most of the supplies from this on http://www.artbeads.com website. I would think they should still have those charms, but I did make this over a year ago. :)
