Prayer beads are for placing upon your altar, holding as you meditate, to use in ritual or wear during ceremony. These are the first two in a three part series associated with the Maiden, Mother, Crone cycle. Growing in my studio are some Birthing Beads for the Mother, they will be suitable for doulas, midwives, birthing mothers, or any one who wishes to work with the magic of birthing.
Each bead is carefully chosen for both it's aesthetic and symbolic contribution to the overall piece. I have been gathering beads for many years now and some of the ones that have found themselves on these prayers beads have been in my company for much of that time.
