Celtic Paidirean of Kwan Yin
Blue Apatite
Ocean Agate
Vintage Carnelian

Many traditions follow the practice of prayer beads, and the Celtic tradition is one. The Buddhist tradition also follows this practice, using a mala. Here I have combined the two, the Celtic Paidirean paired with one of the most compassionate of goddesses, Kwan Yin.

According to one legend, Kwan Yin, who is often referred to as the female Buddha, was a beautiful Indian princess who forsook marriage and the good life to live in a convent in order to become a truly enlightened human being, or bodhisattva.

After having achieved enlightenment and the right to enter Buddhist Heaven or Nirvana, legend has it that at Heaven's gates Kwan Yin heard the despairing cry of someone back on earth. Upon hearing that sad cry, she quickly returned to the earthly plane, and vowed to stay there to help all those who suffer achieve the same level of enlightenment that she had, so that they too could enter Nirvana. Kwan Yin's name means "The one who hears the cries of the world."

Agate
Agate facilitates growth and stability. Agate powers encourage quiet introspection and contemplation, providing a soothing, supportive energy for spiritual growth and confidence in your spirituality. Associated with the throat chakra, it promotes positive intention in your speech, and words.

Apatite
Apatite is a stone of manifestation attuned to the future, activating intuitive abilities and allowing expansion of knowledge. Apatite will stimulate the intellect and bring ideas from the mind down into the earth realm through meditation. Apatite is a dual-action stone, known for its positive use of personal power to achieve goals. It clears away confusion, apathy or negativity, then, stimulates the intellect to expand knowledge and truth, which may be used for personal growth or for the collective good. It is a Stone of Manifestation, promoting a humanitarian outlook and service to others.

Carnelian
Like the unexpected fire of a sunset, or the first flash of autumn brilliance, Carnelian captivates. Its bold energy brings a rush of warmth and joy that lingers, stimulating and empowering. Known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage, Carnelians have protected and inspired throughout history.

Paidireans are long enough to loop once when wearing. This piece is one of a kind.

Artist's statement: I am Winter. I create spiritual tools and jewelry from crystals and stones. All the stones speak to me, and I create from that space.

Meditation necklaces, or Paidirean (PAH-jur-in) are an ancient Celtic form of meditation necklace. They are 150 beads in three sections; this division of three is common in Celtic spirituality.

I make all my meditation necklaces by hand, drawing on spirit for inspiration and guidance. They are made with intention, spiritual direction, and mindfulness. The combinations of stones are dictated by the feel of the stones themselves as I assemble the piece. Use it in good health!
