Lugus Pocket Prayer Beads: Gaulish Celtic God of Commerce and Trade, Inventor of All Arts
This set of Lugus 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 god: a spear. Lugus was depicted in art carrying a spear.
It is made with 10mm light bronze-toned Czech glass beads with a copper finish, separated by gold-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 and the pendant hangs from a 3" (7.6cm) string. 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. Please note that pocket prayer beads are not designed to be worn, as they are too large to be used as a bracelet by most people.
The beads come with a prayer to Lugus, 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.
