How to Make, Bless and Pray a Janae Rosary

How to Make a Janae Mantra Rosary (5 x septads or sections of seven beads):

An Anglican rosary has four ‘weeks’ of septads or four sections of seven. If an Anglican rosary is used, one simply reuses the first septad section for the Janae Daily Mantra Rosary. (The number 5 is one of the Janite Sacred numbers as it is the 5 Mysteries of the 5 Sacred Seasons of the Wheel of the Year).

It is simple enough to make your own:


I use a 25 pound test line (fishing line) to string the beads. Rosary wire or links may also be used.

Good quality beads may be found in craft stores and online. My favorite source is (USA). They offer a free catalog that usually has almost five hundred pages of high quality beads, jewelry and rosary making supplies at very reasonable prices. Also check Etsy.

Push the 35 beads towards the center so that you have a good few inches of line extending beyond the beginning of the first and the end of the last. Cut the side of the line that is still attached to the roll and try to even out the lengths on each side. Thread both ends of the line through the centerpiece bead.

Then, string three regular beads and add the Fora, North Star Charm, Triquetra, icon or medal of Our Lady, Angel (Jana), a goddess pendant or holy symbol of your choice for the beginning of the rosary. Secure or knot the line. These rosaries are very sturdy and do not break easily.
