I just listed this new piece in my shop, and I am SO excited to share it with you! These prayer beads, featuring lots of gorgeous faceted garnet beads, knotwork patterned pewter beads and a teardrop-shaped lampwork glass pendant with silver lined ruby red seed beads, were made for the Celtic warrior goddess Morrighan. Made during my flamekeeping shift with Brighid, I felt close to both goddesses while working on these.

Garnet, when gifted, fosters loyalty and affection. If stolen, the stone is said to bring bad luck until returned to the rightful owner. It is considered a warrior’s stone and has been carried for centuries in battle, as a charm against injury or death. Garnet is also often used as a talisman against negativity and evil, ranging from nightmares to astral attack. It is also a stone of romance and passion; it can be used to increase spiritual awareness or one’s sex drive.
