Prayerful Beads #317

Posted on Jun 22, 2014 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | Comments Off on Prayerful Beads #317

I’d like to talk about beads that incorporate prayers into them.  I call these prayerful beads because they are not just any ordinary bead, there is a story behind this.  A prayer or a bible verse is written on cotton paper, layered on top of recycled magazine strip and rolled into a bead.  The simple act of rolling the bead and praying for someone you don’t know or reading the bible verse somehow connects you to that person.  The collective prayers releases forces that somehow joins our good intentions for another human being with God Almighty and in turn he will pour out His grace and blessings where it is needed.

This Tasseled Prayerful Bracelet is auctioned on my Ebay store all of the profit goes to Charity that supports ending hunger, because nobody should go hungry!  There so much to love about the organic feel of this bracelet, but not only that, it represents 3 things that holds meanings:

Beads – means tears
Tassels – rays of hope
Fish is the symbol for Christianity

Paper Bead Rosaries

Posted on Aug 17, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 3 comments

Prayer beads are used by various cultures as a form of devotion and meditation.  Saying the rosary to me has a special meaning because my mother taught it to me as a little child, now I use it to take my mind off from worry sometimes, I know I should be using it more as devotion.  I am sharing this with you to use paper beads to make prayer beads, I would like to come up with other forms of prayer beads.  In the meantime, I am sharing with you Rosaries that I made.  Most of the materials and instruction are available at Our Lady Of Rosary Makers, they are a not for profit organization.

I made mine out of olive shaped paper beads because the original Rosary that our church gives away for free is made out of plastic beads that resembles the olive shaped paper beads, like this one below.


The plastic findings are very inexpensive and this would make great gifts.


I also made it in silver.


You see how some people hang it on their car, this would be great for that purpose as well.  I have the Virgin Mary in my backyard, so I took a picture of it on Her.


Silk cord is used to make these rosaries, you could also make them with eye pins using the rosary loop technique.
