In today's busy life, do you find your mind is going constantly? In my case, family, job, jewellery business, family, laundry.... A friend who does yoga calls it "monkey brain". Your thoughts are swinging everywhere. I found my quiet time with God was turning into a battle of keeping my mind still. So very frustrating. So I decided to make myself a strand of Prayer Beads.
I choose freshwater pearls because pearls symbolize purity, innocence, faith, and honesty. I used Swarovski crystals in Pink because, well if you haven't guessed, pink is my favourite colour.
Using sterling silver wire, I hand formed the Cross. Then I put it in the tumbler for hours to strengthen the wire and make it shine.
I hold the beads in my hand, running my thumb over the pearls. Oh how it has helped to calm me down, to still my mind, to allow me pray, to let me listen.
I want to say thank you to my sister, Rebecca for understanding my vision before I did! Love ya, sis.
Happy Easter everyone. Thank you for visiting.
