The beads are beautiful; the count is way off. We are making sixteen rosaries at 59 beads per rosary. With 28 bead/strand described, 36 should be enough (28x36=1008>944=59x16). In 36 strands, we received 799 beads (avg 22.2 bead/strand). In retrospect, this is not surprising. 7"x25.4 mm/in = 177.8 mm, divide this by 8mm/bead = 22.2 beads. Not the 28 beads mentioned in the description. As such, we are 145 beads short, or the better part of three rosaries.
