Rosebud Rosary Carved Jet,22ct gold beads


Many cultures and religions use the counting and movement of beads to keep one’s place in structured prayers and to keep connected spiritually.

My hands are always busy, my mind moves from contemplation to construction and back again, circling.

I use a circle of beads as a mantra to slow the breath and still the mind.

Necklaces in this exhibition are inspired by Rosaries, Mala's and Komboloi
