These little prayer strands or chaplets are made with glass pearls.
I made these as a Unitarian Universalist prayer aid to help remember the 7 principles of UU, but these could also be used as chakra beads.
The glass pearls are in the 7 colors of the rainbow. They are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and purple.
The 8mm glass pearls are hand-wired on silver-toned metal eye pins using my trusty looper tool.
There are charms at both ends.
All charms and findings are silver-tone plated alloy metal and are nickel, lead, cadmium, and arsenic-free.
The price is for 1 chaplet.
All chaplets, rosaries, prayer beads, and malas will come in a small organza bag for safe storage.
Please note. I have many different shades of each color used in these prayer beads. Your prayer beads may have some different shades than the photo. If you see a set with the exact shades you'd prefer, send me a note in the comments section when checking out and I will try my best to accommodate. Likewise with the charms. :)
Here is info on the 7 Principles of UU and which colors correspond with each principle.
This info is from the UU Association.
Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote seven Principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. We live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.
As Rev. Barbara Wells ten Hove explains, “The Principles are not dogma or doctrine, but rather a guide for those of us who choose to join and participate in Unitarian Universalist religious communities.”
1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person; RED
2nd Principle: Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations; ORANGE
3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations; YELLOW
4th Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning; GREEN
5th Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large; BLUE
6th Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all; INDIGO
7th Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part; PURPLE
The seven Principles and six Sources of the Unitarian Universalist Association grew out of the grassroots of our communities, were affirmed democratically, and are part of who we are. Read them as they are written in our UUA Bylaws.
I will also be adding info about chakras, for those who are interested.

Frequently Asked Questions
Custom and personalized orders
Custom orders are welcome.

Usually, there is no charge for changes to an existing item, unless I have to special order something.
Tell me about the prayer beads, malas, and rosaries.
Well, a friend asked if I could make him some rosaries. I tried, and discovered I really enjoyed making them.
After I made a few rosaries, I started researching other types of prayer beads, rosaries, and malas.
There are several types in the shop now, and more will be added.
Please be assured that whichever type of prayer beads I am working on, I make them all with great care and reverence.
Whatever your religion or belief system, I will always be respectful.
What's the difference in all the types of Jade that I see for sale?
It can be a bit confusing! lol
Jade, real Jade, comes in two forms:
Jadeite and Nephrite.
Jadeite is the most desired form of the two.
Both come in many colors. The main difference is the crystalline structure that makes up the stone.
Malaysian, or Malay Jade, is the industry name for expertly dyed, translucent Quartz. It often passes for quality Jade.
Mashan, aka Mountain Jade or Candy Jade, is the industry name for expertly dyed, white Dolemite Marble. It is sought after for its vibrant colors.
The Jade I use is all Malay Jade. (To the best of my knowledge).
Do you do custom orders or will you make substitutions?
Any item made with glass pearls can now be made with Czech faceted glass or Malay Jade if I have the right colors.
Any item can be made with different color beads or metal types.
There may be a slight charge for substitution.
I have eye pins and other findings, rosary parts, and some charms in silver, gold, or gunmetal tone, bronze, and copper.
I do have some stainless steel bangles, findings, and charms.
.925 findings are also available. Inquire for info.
I can change any cross, crucifix, rosary center, charm, etc. to your preference.
I can do any name, phrase, or quote in Morse Code jewelry. (I won't promote hate speech).
In addition to glass pearls, Czech glass, and Malay Jade, I have gemstones, glass, acrylic, and metal beads.
What is Morse Code jewelry?
Well, Morse Code is a character code represented by dots and dashes, originally used to send messages by telegraph, later by flashes of light or by radio. It uses dots and dashes to represent letters and numbers.
Morse code jewelry is jewelry made with words or phrases using beads. I use two colors. One for the dots (.) and another for the (-). Most of my jewelry is made on eye pins using pearls or other beads, and the eye pins are connected much like rosary chain. Each letter, for instance, A, (.-), would have its own eye pin. I like the concept because I can spell out anything...Grandchildren's names, movie quotes, or more subversive messages, and no one will know what they say! Well, I'll know. lol
More Morse Code info
I like being able to wear my Grandchildren's names without worrying about giving away too much knowledge to people that don't need to know.
Or wearing my feelings about a controversial topic or person. I can wear my jeweley to the mall or grocery store, or to a family reunion, and no one knows what it says. Bwahaha. No heart attacks, arguments, or shocking Grandma.
YES, I do custom orders. Your names or phrases, your color choices, etc. Price is based on the number of pearls, spacers, etc. that I use.
I have many items already made and ready to ship.
