I was just curious if anyone had made prayer beads. 

I grew up Catholic, and praying the Rosary was a big part of my practice.  I was thinking of making a Kemetic "rosary" with 42 beads for the 42 negative confessions.  Then I found out that other Kemetics appear to be doing something very similar. Darn that Collective Unconscious, putting similar ideas into everyone's headspace...

Have you used prayer beads in your practice?  If you have, I'd love to hear what you've done.  I'd love to see pictures if you have them. 

I make prayer beads relatively frequently. This is the first set I made. It's not the best picture and it was taken before I made some alterations to them . Unfortunately they got mislaid a while back...

All of the beads had meanings and different mantras to go with them. I've put off making another proper set until I have a set of beads with at least as much meaning for me.

The pair I'm currently using I made a few weeks ago out of an old necklace. I don't have a pic. It's essentially a pretty traditional looking mala with various shades of mottled stone beads (not really sure what stone). It only has 78 beads, but it serves its purpose well enough.
