This set of Nemetona prayer beads consists of four sets of nine beads each on the loop, each set separated by a knotwork spacer bead. Joining the string is an additional bead and a pendant, a symbol representing the goddess: a tree. Nemetona was a goddess of wild and holy spaces; the word "nemeton" means "sacred grove," and is still used today by some modern Druids to refer to a place of worship.
It is made with 6mm moss agate gemstone 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 26" (66cm) 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 beads can also be worn slipped over the head as a necklace. If you plan to wear it, please make sure a 26" (66cm) loop will fit easily over your head, as this piece has no clasp (although it can be made with one if desired--please contact me for information on customization!)
The beads come with a prayer to Nemetona, 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.
