Today I went shopping with Loki, and found some amazing sparkly beads to use for His bead set. They are nothing like I was planning on picking out, but He was insistent, so now I have a purple rhinestone swirled acrylic bead and two lavenderish colored glass beads lined in metal.
The plans for these beads keep changing and growing, now I have imagined at least two memory wires twisting in and out of larger beads, with a hand crimped chain along the middle of this. He wants me to push my boundaries, try new things, and make something truly awesome for Him.
I have had some practice working with beads each day, I made my husband a bead mala earlier this evening, I used magnetic hematite beads, cobalt blue glass, green jasper, grayish swirl jasper, 4 metal key charms, and a smokey quartz focal bead. It is about the same size as my brother’s set. My husband asked me to make one for him because his new job has been very stressful (working in ER registration) especially if children are injured or sick. So I imbued it with de-stressing, relaxing, grounding, and protective energies.
My brother’s beads as promised.
Both new sets I have made my brother’s on the left, my husband’s on the right.
