New Persephone and Hades Prayer Beads in my Etsy Shop

The bright days keep my mind on Persephone, and I took the opportunity to use some of the beads I’ve been saving for her and for Hades.

Today I listed another two sets of pocket-sized prayer beads to the gods of the underworld, two that I very much enjoyed making.

The Persephone beads are made from Czech pressed glass beads shaped like black pansies (some of my favorite flowers!) with a silver-toned pomegranate pendant. The pomegranate is perhaps Persephone’s most important symbol in that it represents her agreement that–having eaten of its seeds–she would spend a part of each year with Hades her husband, and a part on the surface with her mother.

The beads are approximately 13.75″ (35cm). They come with a prayer to Persephone, 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.

They are available here at my Etsy shop.

The Hades beads are made of black ceramic in the shape of skulls with a silver-toned lily attached. The calla lily, a modern symbol of both mourning and marriage, is a particularly apt representation of the role of Hades in myth. (As for the skull beads, my daughter has been asking how I’ll be using them ever since they arrived–now I can show her!)

The beads are approximately 13″ (33cm) in circumference. They come with a prayer to Hades, 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.

They are available here at my Etsy shop.
