:: Prayer Beads ::

As I was creating this strand of Prayer Beads I was thinking of a much-missed friend, a member of the Desert Tribe who, because of illness, cannot be present today. I selected the beads because they remind me of her, and her unique style which has been so influential on my own over the years. It is an endless strand, a circle of remembrances that can be worn as a necklace or held in the hand like a mala for contemplation. The beads celebrate the rustic, the organic, the ancient, the wild desert earth. As with all of my Prayer and Spirit Beads they were all selected not only for appearance but for their tactile quality. As you hold them and pass each bead between your fingers in meditation or prayer, it becomes like a walkabout on a long journey through wild and nourishing places.

This is a piece I would keep on an altar or coffee table where they are always seen and can easily come to hand. The colors and textures are marvelously rich. Many fossils were included: a brachiopod fragment, dinosaur and stegodon bone, agatized turritella shell, crinoid…as well as brown Baltic amber. There is ancient Bactrian glass, ancient walrus ivory, and three ancient teeth from walrus or seal from Alaska punctuating the strand, giving it a tribal feeling. There are beads of stone, clay and pearl…bone, brass and glass…and a couple of tiny Naga brass amulets. Matte Picasso finish Czech glass beads serve as spacers. I strung the beads on medium weight beading wire, the same heavier gauge I used in my large Spirit Strands, for durability. These are meant to be held and used every day.

Prayer and Spirit Beads are something you can create your own ceremony, practice and rituals with…no rules or rote prayers to memorize. I will include an information sheet along with your beads to help you get started.

SIZE:  36” in length.

CARE: Every so often, rinse briefly in cool water to clean and gently blot dry with a soft towel.
