“I Walk With the Goddess” Prayer Beads

This design is inspired by  “I Walk With the Goddess” by Kelliana and Leanda Walker.

SUPPLIES

  • scissors
  • 8 ft pink satin rat tail cord 2mm thick
  • 16 pink pony beads

DESIGN

Make sure you understand the basic skills required.

Fold the cord in half. Tie it to the split ring with a lark head knot.

In this design, each section is separated with an over hand knot.

The sections are as follows:

  •  2 pink beads
  • 1 yellow, 1 green, 1 blue, 1 red
  • 4 pink beads
  • 1 yellow, 1 green, 1 blue, 1 red
  • 4 pink beads
  • 1 yellow, 1 green, 1 blue, 1 red

Trim the tails to desired length.  This completes your design. It will look something like this:

HOW TO USE

Each bead color has its own saying.  Starting at the ring side, you can listen to “I Walk With the Goddess”  and “count” each bead as the verses are sung.  You can also simply recite without listening.

Gift Cards

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.
