These hand painted wooden beads strung with a painted gold clay heart or cross make a wonderful accent to any shelf or table. They look beautiful hanging from a lamp or draped over a stack of books. The clay piece is either plain or stamped with lettering. Each strand is hand made and the beads are accented with gold leaf. Colors and sizes will vary. The inspiration for the beads was support of my son. In January 2020, he was diagnosed with a life threatening immune disorder called hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). In June 2020 after intensive treatments and chemotherapy, he underwent a bone marrow transplant. The beads were sold to build a prayer support network and raise funds for hospital bills.
