How to Make Pagan Prayer Beads

by Danielle.dyer

Age Group: Adult

A set of Pagan Prayer Beads is similar to a Rosary (indeed, in some circles they are known as the Witch's Rosary) . This project is perfect for customization. I will give you a set pattern. Feel free to follow or create your own! Likewise, I will give you a set prayers for each bead, but I will also include variations. As always, your spiritual practices are as unique as you are. Take what suits you from the following guidelines, but please make this your Own set of Prayer Beads.
Creating Your Own Witch's Rosary (Example)
A set of Prayer Beads created to remind oneself of the forest. It has nine sets (3 x 3, number of the Divine Mother) of three beads for the Maiden, Mother and Crone and eight single beads in between the Goddess sets for Earth prayers.

Purchase a thin leather cord; a set of green, dark green and amber beads; a set of varying sized wooden beads and small silver beads for spacers.

When stringing the beads, keep this pattern in mind:
Three spacers
Earth bead (soft green bead)
Three spacers
Amber bead
Dark green bead
Small wooden bead
Large wooden bead
Small wooden bead
Dark green bead
Amber bead
Threee spacers
Earth Bead, etc.
Some variations might include a simple large bead in place of the Goddess sets of three, or, even simpler, alternating different color beads. When you think of a pattern you like, write it down before you begin. It always helps to have a simple chart to work with to start.
Depending on which deities you invoke, the colors will change. For example, if you worship Brigid, your set of Prayer Beads would probably be made up of red, gold and white. If you worship Diana, you would use blue and silver. But please don't get carried away with "traditional" color meanings. The colors themselves have deeper magical meanings, so choose your colors with intuition and heart.
Once you have your pattern and beads chosen, string the beads onto the cord. As you place each bead onto the cord, say something that binds it to you.
A good chant to keep up the rhythm of stringing is, "Goddess come and bless this art, merry meet and merry part."

Once the pattern and desired number of beads is strung, it's time to knot the cord. Bring both loose ends together and tie a knot, double-knot it and triple-knot it, saying the chant firmly and with conviction for the final three times. Your set Prayer Beads is ready to be consecrated.
