The beads from this rosary are hand-dyed with Cochineal, Logwood and Indigo. With love infused in each bead, they were then strung and knotted with hemp cord.
A hand-sculpted polymer clay figurine inspired by ancient Paleolithic Venus figures is then added to finish this one-of-a kind rosary.
For each ten feminine beads (Hail Marys), there is a masculine bead (Our Father).
The soil and Darkness needs the sun and Light to grow life.
Saying these mantras again and again, while feeling each bead, are a reminder of the circular nature of life, like the Sa Ta Na Ma mantra in kundalini yoga, birth, life, death and rebirth.
This ancient practice is very simple but deeply radical. Hold these powerful beads, in your hand, and reconnect with the Divine Feminine.
Inspired by The Way of the Rose, The Radical Path of the Divine Feminine Hidden in the Rosary by Clark Strand and Perdita Finn, we are so happy to offer you beautiful alternative rosaries honoring the goddess and the earth.
Handmade and hand-dyed by Caroline, an artist, wild-crafter and herbalist who is also a homesteading and homeschooling Mama.
"The Rosary makes us wise, because the rosary makes us patient. The seed of wisdom is sown within us from the first moment we take up the beads. It may take a while before we can feel it stirring. In the meantime, we learn to trust that it is so."
