:: Sacred Desert :: Spirit Beads ::

As promised, I have wanted to create lighter strands of Spirit Beads that are wearable as lariat or open style necklaces. In the past, what I’ve found so interesting and appealing about long strands of prayer beads is the sheer variety of shapes and colors of the different elements, and most of the beads I’ve gathered for them have been on the large side. But because of this they’ve tended to run very large and are better as hand held pieces rather than necklaces. So I set about to design this one was specifically as a necklace, to loop over itself and drape in a beautiful way, and was designed with a very structured and limited number of beads. It’s a departure from the usual Spirit Beads pattern, but I think it works very well.

The set features a wealth of stunning Chinese green turquoise beads and pendants, ancient oosik and walrus ivory, Baltic brown amber, and andalusite beads. The colors in this set are rich and healing in themselves, but I have also begun infusing my pieces with Reiki energy as I work and before they are sent out to you. I am a Reiki Master Teacher and have infused each piece I make with spiritual light and blessings as long as I've been working, but now I've decided to add more Reiki to the mix.

A beautiful gift for yourself or a loved one!

About Spirit Beads:

I have been making Spirit Beads for nearly 20 years now, and they are my favorite thing to do, always a joy to create. These long hand-held strands are created for prayer, meditation, ceremony, and present-moment mindfulness practice. You're invited to enter into a living relationship with them, one which will become richer and deeper over time. They're made to give you something physical to touch and hold as a reminder of the presence of Spirit in daily life...everywhere, and in everything. I tend to use mine for centering, to calm me and still my mind, and connect to places or energies that are sacred to me. What I love about Spirit Beads is that you are free to create your own way of using them, any way you choose. This open-ended "shawl" style was originally created by contemporary prayer bead artisan Eleanor Wiley, who has traveled the world teaching others how to make and use their own prayer beads. Eleanor's work was a great inspiration to me in the early days of jewelry designing and continues to be so today. I will include an information sheet with this set that will give you some suggestions as to how to use them.

This set of Spirit Beads is meant to work both as a hand-held strand of prayer beads, and as a lariat style necklace. For this, you can wear them looped together lariat style where the beads on the strand are smallest, as shown in the first mannequin photo. But they also work wonderfully as a sacred presence in your home, where they would look lovely kept on your home altar, coffee table, nightstand, or even hung on the wall...any place where they will invite you to pick them up, and easily come to hand. I have several sets of Spirit Beads and keep them on my mannequin or on the walls so I can always see them. When I am not using them, they help bless and energize my workspace and home.

The Talismans:

The five talismans each hang from primitive wrapped bronze links which are attached to bronze clay rings. The rings were molded from a boulder at Saguaro National Park West in the Tucson Mountains of southern Arizona. All of the bronze was oxidized and carefully hand finished.

Two of the talismans are amulets of the most beautiful olive green turquoise I’ve ever seen. The color is just extraordinary and both sides of both amulets are lovely. (You can see the reverse side of the amulets in the 3rd photo with the beads.) There is a large piece of oosik, a type of walrus bone, and on the other side is an ancient tooth of a walrus or seal. These and the beads above all come from St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, and are very, very old. A fifth talisman is also made of bronze clay, and was impressed on a stone at Sun Temple in Mesa Verde…a very special piece.

The Beads:

Most of the beads in the strand are green turquoise, a color you will not find very often. The green hue comes from the presence of iron in the turquoise; bluer turquoise gets its color from copper. I have carefully edited the types of beads I selected to go with it so that they complement and support the color and energy of the turquoise. They include Baltic black or brown amber nuggets, ancient ivory, tumbled Arizona petrified wood, coppery baroque pearls, andalusite nuggets, and a single bone bead. The spacer beads are turquoise and pearl. This makes for an especially comforting, calming and grounding mix, full of ancient energy and the deep peace of the earth.

The strand was strung on durable medium-weight beading wire (stainless steel fibers coated with nylon). All turquoise used has been stabilized.

SIZE: The strand measures 49 1/2” from end to end.

CARE:  Rinse briefly in cool water to clean. Dry with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use soap with turquoise and pearls.
