My prayer beads are made out of materials I had on hand...some glass beads from old bracelets, natural sandalwood beads from what used to be a Buddha Rosary, a pewter pentagram pendant, and a heron pendant.

At the bottom/beginning are four beads for the elements earth, water, fire, and air. From there I have a purple bead followed by 9 sandalwood beads, a blue bead followed by 9 sandalwood beads, another purple one followed by 9 sandalwood beads, and it ends with a blue bead. Now to try to describe the prayer:

Bead 1 (for earth): "The earth supports me."

Bead 2 (for water): "The water surrounds me."

Bead 3 (for fire): "The fire arches over me."

Bead 4 (for air): "The air sustains me."

Bead 5: "I bind myself to the memory of the ancestors."

Beads 6-14: "Ancestors remember me as I remember you. Hear my prayer and accept my love."

Bead 15: "I bind myself to the fellowship of all earth spirits."

Beads 16-24: "Earth Spirits aid me as I aid you. Hear my prayer and accept my love."

Bead 25: "I bind myself to the power of the Supreme Beings."

Beads 26-34: "Supreme Beings honor me as I honor you. Hear my prayer and accept my love."

Finally, on Bead 35: "I bind myself to the love, guidance, and blessings of the Three Kindreds."

Being a fairly new student of Druidry, I hope this represents it well enough. The only thing I don't really have is a closing of some kind to end the prayer. I wasn't sure if one was needed or not, so I am open to advice or suggestions with that part. I would, of course, begin with some kind of grounding or meditation to begin my focus before beginning the prayer.

All of this was adapted, for the most part, from:
