These Baphomet pagan prayer beads are very substantial, with quite some heft to them! The smaller beads are polished hematite, and the larger beads are garnet, with a very stunning ruby red Swarovski point at the end. This necklace was completely handmade, using traditional rosary making techniques. This WILL NOT fall apart like a mass made rosary. With any rosary using premade rosary bead chain, if you catch the necklace on something and a link becomes loose, it sets off a domino effect in which the entire necklace can fall into a whole bunch of pieces. I know, because I used to wear them. With the way I make my rosaries, if you happen to pull or catch it on something, in the event that a connection DOES let go, the rest of the necklace will be fine.
Hematite is an excellent grounding stone, and prevents negative energies from affecting those who wear it. It is also a stone for enhancing the will, which is applicable to so many different situations! Hematite promotes balance within the self and is associated with the root chakra, Aries, and the element of fire.
Garnet is often used for psychic protection, and is also associated with the root chakra. It is a stone of strength and willpower.
This necklace is full of symbolism. There are five sets of 8 polished hematite beads to represent the Sabbats, with a large garnet bead placed between each set to represent the four seasons. This is connected to a finely crafted pewter inverted pentagram featuring the Sabbatical Goat, or Baphomet, which symbolizes spirit subdued by the elements, embracing the physical as spiritual. Hanging from this are 3 beads, and flanked by two large beads. The vibrant red swarovski crystal point can be used for scrying, if you wish.
This is worn by pulling the necklace over the head (the chain is so long, no clasp is needed), with the beaded chain being roughly 28″ in circumference, with the part hanging down with the crystal measuring at about 7.” This is a large piece, and though I am short, if falls to just above my waist when worn.
I designed this necklace because, having been raised Catholic, I have a long standing affection for rosaries, but wanted one that was meaningful to me, and I’m not so fond of wearing crucifixes.
*****Like the style, but want different colors or stones? Not a problem! I will be more than happy to work with you to custom design a piece just for you! Please keep in mind that the price of this rosary is a base price, and depending on the cost of stones, or if you want to use sterling silver instead of a base metal, yours may end up costing more. I will give you a price BEFORE ordering materials so that you may make changes, if necessary. Blessed be!*****
