Mala, Tasbeeh, Prayer Beads,
Worry Beads, Rosary, Gratis beads
Throughout the eons, prayer beads have been used by
many nations for various intentions, at times without any intrinsic religious significance.
In our workshops, you will learn the fascinating
philosophies behind these revered beads:
~ Japa Mala beads (Hindu
and Buddhist Mantra beads)
~ Tasbeeh (Persian
and Arab prayer and omen beads)
~ Kompoloi (Greek
~ Rosary (Christian
~ Gratis beads (Gratitude
and blessing beads)
After the learning about them, you
will make your very own and then we practice its use.
To choose one is a deep personal affair as the
material, the colour, shape,
structure and the feel of each must strike a chord in your heart. You will
learn how to make your very own either using the beads you bring yourself, or
you can purchase them at the workshop (remember you can always recycle beads
from old jewellery).
You can keep your beads in hand
made sacred boxes or wear them as necklace, bracelet and keyrings.
- DELIGHTFUL!! - Lisa Hannigan is an Irish singer, and apparently also a crafty girl! Take a look at the video for her song ‘I Don’t Know’ - it’s well worth watching to the end to see her paper cuts take shape. I love how much she seems to be enjoying her paper crafting as she sings.
I made the ring piece originally as a necklace pendant, but dangly ring was more fun an idea :) But it can turn into a pendant for necklace or be attached to the bracelet itself as well.
These are made out of paper and diamante beads.
