In many magical traditions and religious paths, the use of beads can be a meditative and magical exercise. Why not assemble a set of beads that holds meaning to you.

I saw a set made from snowflake obsidian once. Omg was it gorgeous! Until I saw the price tag, that is. This would be a good esbat project. Now I want to go look for beads lol

I'm making a set right now using jasper. I have a really good book about called Pagan Prayer Beads by John Michael Greer and Clare Vaughan. The book is perfect for me, because Greer and Vaughan are both Druids, so they give a lot of ideas on how to create Druidic jewelry. But they cover other Pagan paths as well in their book.

Other books that have some really beautiful pieces and some great and creative ideas are Beading in No Time by Linda Peterson, Easy Beaded Jewelry by Susan Ray and Sue Wilke, Enchanted Adornments by Cynthia Thorton and Jewelry Designs From Nature by Heather Powers.

I used to make these all of the time and sell them. I think I need to begin to make them again.

I've made a couple of sets, but they aren't much like anything I've read about. I just kinda...followed my gut. Amethyst and quartz with a Goddess bead and a Tree of Life pendant.

It's pretty and simple. I make steampunk jewelry sometimes so I used a couple of gears I had and twine.

 I have a set of beads my witchy HP friend made me for my b day. It is  a pendulum with beads , Theyhave a random number of beads, no  significance to the sabbats or esbats or anything I can see, but there is one color that has 4  beads so I use them to represent the elements.
