We gave in... we now have paracord rosaries!
Coming in at 10oz, this rosary is threaded on #95 paracord.
Connected to our oversized Miraculous Medal and a habit crucifix by 1/16 aluminum ferrules for maximum strength.
In between the prayer groups are smaller secure knots to keep them in place and are made to be smaller than the beads so there is no more confusion about whether this knot is a prayer or not.
With solid steel 1/18 oz beads...
Smaller cord means less bulkiness and better collapsing.
