Synopsis:

Find Your Creative Self in the Kaleidoscope of Beads & Color

"Beading and my spiritual path are intricately interwoven. It would be difficult for me to separate the two because they are so completely intertwined with one another. As I sit and weave with my beads, I allow the Creative Spirit to flow through me, and though my hands are doing the work, another force is actively participating in the process. This force is a transmission of Spirit that fills me with deep inner peace and joy as I bead. As a result, the practice of my art form has become a creative path to my sacred center."
―from the Introduction

Believing that beading is a form of meditation through which we can access the Creative Spirit that is always present in us, master bead artist Rev. Wendy Ellsworth offers multiple ways to explore beading as a spiritual journey of self-discovery. Each of the seven chapters is rich with personal stories, exercises, and beading projects, and each project has a meditative experience to encourage a contemplative spirit and creative play. The project results are beautiful, meaningful symbols designed by a master bead artist for both novice and experienced beaders alike.

Original projects include:

  • Geometric Mandala
  • Personal Mandala
  • Personal Prayer Beads
  • Beaded Prayer Pouch
  • Goddess Archetype Necklace
  • Beaded Stick Figure Goddess
  • Chakra Necklace
  • Chakra Flower Sculpture
  • Free-form Gourd Stitch Bracelet
  • Ruffled Cabochon Brooch
  • Dutch Spiral Necklace
  • Spiral Vessel
  • Song Beads
  • Herringbone Stitch Cuff with Freshwater Pearls

From the Inside Flap: Reconnect with Your Wholeness, Your Meaning, Your Purpose
Drawing on her experience as an internationally recognized professional bead artist and teacher, Rev. Wendy Ellsworth explores the spirit of creativity and illustrates how you can use the art of beading to reconnect with your sacred center.
Presenting projects that even a novice beader can do, Ellsworth introduces ten tools of creative expression and demonstrates how you can apply them to your beadwork and your spiritual life. She shows how beading can be a meditative practice that encourages personal expression and spiritual inspiration, and examines the ways it can renew your faith in the healing power of the Creative Spirit through:
Love * Compassion * Trust * Self-Confidence Courage * Imagination * Play * Joy * Intention * Wildness
"Includes fascinating information about the use of beads and sacred symbols in both ancient and modern religious belief systems. I highly recommend [it] to anyone who wants to develop an awareness and a deeper understanding of the spiritual/creative connection."
--Nancy Eha, beading instructor and author, Off the Beadin' Path
"Exquisite--in its message and in the projects chosen. Artists in every medium can benefit from Beading--The Creative Spirit."
--Loretta Radeschi, basketmaker and author, The Business Guide Series for Artists and Craftspeople
