Nature is always a strong theme in my prayer bead design simply because I am so connected with the sacred in the natural world. With so many plants, trees, creatures and elements out there, there is so much to incorporate I'm lucky I don't have to look far to find examples to work with.
This bead is lampwork, handmade in glass. I have always admired these artisans so much. To bring such beauty from essentially sand and heat. Amazing.
