Clare Vaughn is a longtime beader who currently makes Pagan rosaries and holds frequent workshops on making and using prayer beads. Clare is an experienced ceremonial magician and a practitioner of plant-spirit magic, as well as the coauthor of Learning Ritual Magic. She lives in Ashland, Oregon.

Religions from around the world, Buddhism, Hinduism, Catholicism, Islam, and many more, including the Pagan earth religions use prayer beads as useful guides to remembering prayers and principles. Pagan Prayer Beads by John Michael Greer and Clare Vaughn is a unique and practical introduction to the design, creation, and use of Pagan rosaries, teaching the reader to design and make personal prayer beads for use in myriad spiritual practices. Cowritten by a beading expert (Clare Vaughn) and one of the leading lights in modern Paganism (John Michael Greer), this book will garner an eager audience from beginners to elders looking for new inspiration in their personal spiritual practice. Beautifully written, instructive, and straightforward, Pagan Prayer Beads is user friendly and easy to understand. Lovely black and white photographs accompany the text to further illustrate the art and craft of Pagan prayer beads. The howto sections were "tested" by novices to both crafting and "the craft," who found the directions clear and easy to follow. Throughout the book, Greer and Vaughn have included fascinating history and lore as well as crystal properties, Pagan symbology, and deeply meaningful prayers and rituals to use with the rosaries. * 30 lovely black and white photos accompany the beading instructions.
