This design is inspired by “From the Goddess” by Desert Wind.
- a 1″ split ring
- 8 ft purple satin rat tail cord 2mm thick
- 28 purple pony beads
- 10 light pink pony beads
- 10 magenta pony beads
- 1 white pony bead or goddess charm/pendant to finish with
- 4″ x 6″ white organza bag (optional)
Make sure you understand the basic skills required.
Fold the cord in half and tie a lark’s head knot to attach it to the split ring.
The first segment consists of 2 pink, 2 magenta, and 4 purple. Thread the beads on in that order and use an over hand knot before changing colors. It should look like this:

The third segment consists of another 2 pink, 2 magenta, and 10 purple.
The last segment consists of 2 pink, 2 magenta, 4 purple and two pink.
To end the design, use a white bead and/or a goddess charm/pendant. Your design is complete! If desired, you can hang it like a witch’s ladder on the wall from a pushpin.
HOW TO USE
Each bead color has its own saying. Starting at the ring side, you can listen to the “From the Goddess” song and “count” each bead as the verses are sung. You can also simply recite without listening.
If you are making these as simple gifts, you can include this card. Print on white card stock, cut out, and place with the beads inside a white organza bag. While you can choose other color bags, white makes it easy to read through the mesh.
Two are “already colored dots” and two are “blank dots.” If you used a different color scheme, you can color in the dots with fine tip marker to match your design.
