I sat down to relax and finish a few projects. One project I had on the back burner for too long was a very delicate menat I’m using for a ritual. Here’s what it looks like:
I used all glass beads except for the stars. I dubbed it the “Stellar Menat” because it has this celestial feel based on how I designed it. Apart from the star beads I based the strand design off of the necklace design which holds the Silver Crystal from the manga version of Sailor Moon. The reason I held back on finishing it was because I hadn’t found the right pendant. I found that about a month ago at a craft store, and it’s the perfect size for my hand. Since my menat is too delicate for everyday use I’m confining it only to rituals.
