Peace Beads

"The beach is not only a sweep of sand, but shells of sea creatures, the sea glass, the seaweed, the incongruous objects washed up by the ocean." ~Henry Grunwald

I have been making Peace Beads { prayer beads} using raw wood beads and hand-painting them in layers of grey & white-wash.  Creating a patina as if tossed and turned by the waves of the ocean deep...washed by the sea.  Then I add seashells and driftwood found on the shores of the Sonoma Coast with a tattered Seawashed ribbon and sacred medal from Italy.  These are One Of A Kind and meant to hang indoors to bring peace to a corner of your home from the Pacific.  They are available in my Seawashed Shop.  

"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other." ~ Mother Teresa 

A peace of the sea
for you.

"When the full fields begin
to smell of sunrise
and the valleys sing
in their sleep,
The pilgrim moon pours 
over the solemn darkness
her waterfalls of silence,
And then departs up the long
avenue of trees." 
~Thomas Merton
