Brigantia Pocket Prayer Beads: British Celtic Goddess of Protection and Victory

Regular price $40.00

This set of Brigantia pocket prayer beads consists of a total of twelve beads. There are three sets of three beads on the loop, signifying the realms of earth, sea and sky, each set separated by a knotwork spacer bead. Joining the string is an additional bead and a pendant, a symbol representing the goddess herself, carrying a spear.

NOTE: Although the image on the pendant bears a strong resemblance to ancient images of a spear-bearing Brigantia, it was made for the Irish goddess Brigid (they are related etymologically) and this is clear from the writing on the back (which you can see in the third picture). Because of this, if you would prefer to use it for Brigid, please let me know and I can include a prayer for Brigid as well.

It is made with 10mm dark blue fire-polished Czech glass beads, separated by silver-toned metal spacer beads, and glass seed beads to provide a comfortable transition from one bead to the next and to make the piece lightweight, supple, and easy to handle. The loop itself is approximately 11" (28cm) in circumference. It is designed to be used in prayer and meditation, to decorate an altar or shrine, and/or to adorn a statue. The small size makes it easy to keep on hand in a drawer, a purse, or a pocket.

The beads come with a prayer to Brigantia, written specifically to be used with this prayer bead design, and with a cotton muslin bag for storage.

You can, of course, use the beads with any prayers, or for any god or gods, that you choose or that resonate with you.
