Goddess beads for the goddess in us all

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:36 pm by kim

Having recently read ‘Crossing to Avalon’ by Jean Shinoda Bolen http://www.jeanshinodabolen.com/ (Personal account of pilgrimage to sacred sites, commentary and reflections upon my own spiritual journey, midlife, and goddess spirituality as embodied experience of divinity, which differs from transcendent experiences of god; midlife, individuation, quest for meaning. Grail legend, Handless maiden: archetypal patterns), and recogniszing patterns in my own world that are changing, I have been inspired to make some more goddess beads!  The last series that I made were for http://www.goddessgifts.com.au/ a few years ago, but it has been an enjoyable journey!

See my goddess beads at http://www.northcoastbeadmakers.com/gallery/?gallery=kimmyg&cat=beads-~-sculptural-and-critters

String of beads

Could not resist posting this quote!

Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

More goddesses from Susan Clarkson

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:33 am by kim

Susan’s
goddess beads have been an instant hit with the first listings selling almost immediately the newsletter went out! Susan has listed more, but already they are trotting out of the shop to new homes. We seem to be selling them almost faster than Susan can make them!

Susan’s connection with ‘the goddess’, that which is a sacred part of a woman’s
psyche, is evident in her work and provides her with much needed and
well deserved ‘me’ time!!

Browse Susan’s galleries when you have a chance…….
