Serenity Prayer Beads, Sobriety Gift for Christians in 12 Step Recovery
This is a larger set of 12 step recovery prayer & meditation beads, made with black onyx, silver hematite, rutilated quartz and jasper gemstone beads, featuring a Serenity Prayer medal. They are suitable for men or wome), and are well-constructed for rugged hands.
I've used larger 10mm round black onyx beads for the 12 beads in the loop, which represent the 12 steps of the recovery program. These onyx beads are separated with small silver hematite beads, tiny grey jasper and little silver & black spacers so they flow through your fingers easily.
Black onyx: grounding, encourages happiness & good fortune;
Crystal quartz: energizing, empowering - a stone of healing;
Hematite: calming, grounding;
Grey jasper: creative stimulus, higher guidance in decision-making.
The loop comes together at a silver pewter Unity symbol, originally the emblem of Alcoholics Anonymous but now recognized as a symbol of recovery. The 3 sides of the triangle represent the 3 concepts of recovery - unity, service and recovery - encompassed by the circle of fellowship.
The front of the set has 3 rutilated quartz beads that have a base quartz milky-clear color shot through with black inclusions. These 3 beads reinforce the 3 principles of recovery - they can be used for meditating on the personal meaning of those concepts in your life.
The set finishes with a pewter medal with praying hands on the front and the Serenity Prayer in raised lettering on the reverse. The set is made with multi-strand super-flexible stainless steel wire, and all ends are properly finished with wire guardians.
Length from mid-back to end of medal: 35cm / 14 inches;
Serenity Prayer medallion: 2.5cm across / 1 inch;
Beads: 10mm round onyx & quartz, 6mm hematite, 4mm jasper.
These prayer beads come with a pamphlet explaining a bit about them & some suggested ways of using them, and will be attractively packaged.
