  • Lane Beading Mattah Prayer Stick Staff
    Australian Green Opal Chalcedony

    CLICK for available components.

    Contact me before placing any order. I frequently do not have enough time available to make these things. Some individual components are stocked or easily produced: set stones, leather grip (need stick circumference).

    This mattah (pronounced: mah-TAH), or prayer stick, or prayer staff, or prayer rod, is made of high quality materials, and carefully and artfully worked. All the scarves are hemmed. The lane beading is hand worked. All the leather is real; the feathers and stones are real.

    I do not sell finished mattahs due to shipping challenges. If you are interested in purchasing the components of the mattah and assembling one yourself, please contact me. You'll need to buy your own pole at a local lumber yard. (I'm 5'9" and my pole is 72 inches.) Price for decorations will range from $100 - $250 plus shipping, depending on what you want on it. Delivery would be 4-5 weeks because everything is hand made after the order is placed, plus I have to purchase certain items. Do keep in mind that this is a labor-intensive project.

    Note regarding stone setting: I reset this stone with gold filled wire because it does not tarnish. The new setting is more skillfully worked (I've gotten real good at this) and thus more secure, as well as much more artistic.

  • I use only legal feathers: wild turkey, guinea fowl, peacock.
  • Beads are glass seed beads--very jewel-like.
  • Chipbead stones are all semi-precious polished gemstones: garnet, amethyst, aventurine, tiger eye, sodalite, turquoise.
  • The gemstone cabochon will vary subject to availability. Setting is 14K gold filled wire. Sample is Australian green opal. CABS AVAILABLE HERE
  • All the cords are braided suede leather.
  • The hand grip is smooth leather, heavy cowhide.
  • Pole is 6 foot length of pine closet pole, stained with Zar a medium brown.
  • Nine hemmed scarves of 1/8 yd. nylon silk-look and nylon blend metallic fabrics
  • Glued with Tacky Glue ®
