THE MORRIGAN Goddess Pagan Prayer Beads Healing Crystals, Chanting & Ritual Beads for Altar Decor
These beautiful and unique handcrafted pagan prayer beads (meditation beads, witch’s ladder, pagan rosary) were made to honor The Morrigan. She is also known as Morrígu or Mór-Ríoghain (in modern Irish).
As with all my prayer beads, a lot of thought goes into the design as there is a lot of symbolism and meaning in the number of stones and charms and also the colour and properties of the stones. It has been designed with magickal numbers in mind, specifically the number 4 to represent the elements, fire, earth, water and sky the number 9 for spellwork or chanting.
The healing crystals that have been chosen to represent The Morrigan are all earth colours plus red and black for her association as a war Goddess. She is also a Goddess of the land and livestock. The leaf is a symbol of this and the wolf is an animal that she is connected with.
I use the highest quality natural and ethically sourced gemstone crystal beads in all of my designs to ensure that you are getting the best and most pure energy from what I create. They are attuned with Reiki energy specifically for you before shipping them to you and all beads are cleansed with sound and smoke before I start working with them. You are not only buying handmade artisan prayer beads but you are also getting healing crystal energy to deepen your practice and support and/or protect you wherever and whenever needed.
These artisan prayer beads have been made with:
• Natural Sandstone, Carnelian, Golden Black Obsidian, Green Grass Agate, Tiger's Eye, Green Phantom Quartz, Malachite, Garnet, Moss Agate and Black Tourmaline Gemstone Crystal Beads and Thai Wood Beads
• Tibetan and Silver Plated Charms & Pendants and beads.
This would be the perfect addition to your altar or carried with you in a pocket for use while you are out and about in your everyday life.
This piece measures 30 inches in length not including the pendant charms at each end.

I work with several small businesses & artisan suppliers in Asia and Europe to source the components of my pieces. I also package & ship in the most environmentally respectful way possible.
Obviously, I need to get your items to you in perfect condition but I am also are aware of so much waste when it comes to packaging. My solution is to wrap your order in recycled tissue paper and instead of a box or little bag that you will probably never use again, I send each piece in a lovely canvas cosmetics or jewellery bag that I have designed especially for my creations. (If you don't think you would reuse this bag please let me know and I will just send securely wrapped.)
I also realise that not everyone wants a lot of printed material with their purchase. I do give information in the listing description as to the healing properties of the gemstones. However sometimes it is nice to have it printed to refer to or to be able to include it when sending as a gift, so I offer an option in the drop-down menu for you to choose whether to have a card included with the details of the components and their benefits.
Please note that I do use vintage metal findings & components in some of my designs, so some natural tarnish, patina & wear is present that adds to their beautifully unique character. Natural fractures do occur within certain gemstones, and this is not indicative of damage but is a characteristic of natural (non-synthetic) stones. I do my best to represent these characteristics in my photos as accurately as possible.
I only make one piece at a time so the one you see in the photograph is the one you will get. This also means that once it is sold it can be a while before I remake it depending on what I have in stock or it may not be able to be remade as I buy my supplies in small quantities and sometimes cannot find them again. If it truly is unique and a 'one off' it will say so on the listing.
Thank you for supporting my business, and for choosing to shop small. I appreciate you more than words can say!
