The Birth of the 11:11 Beaded Necklace
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my post on November 1st. In a completely unplanned synchronistic way, I am finishing up this blog post today November 11th, 2021.
I wrote about this beautiful new creation and how it came into being in my November 1st post on IG/FB and I'm going to start there and then I will go into more depth about the meaning of the numbers and a bit more of an explanation about the aquamarine energies.
I've been learning to surrender to my intuition via working with a pendulum, and through this process, I created an 11:11 beaded necklace.
Now, this beauty looks very similar to my more traditional malas, however, there is one key difference - it's built using 11s. The other day I was pulling apart the rest of my premade malas that I'd created back in 2019 and putting the beads back into my stock when a question popped into my head, "I wonder how many aquamarine beads are here?"
So how many beads? 121 - 6mm beads - 11 sets of 11. Interesting! So I picked up my pendulum and started asking yes/no questions until I had a final layout and a new way to put it together. I added 11- 8mm beads to mark the 11 sets and 22 hematite spacers for each of the 8mm beads. (11x11)+11+22=154 plus the Guru Rudraksha Seed bead. 155= 1+5+5 = 11.
The Symbology of the Number Eleven
If you're into Numerology or you see repeating numbers as I do then the next bit of information is already known to you, but still real
ly interesting. 11 is the bringer of spiritual awareness, and when I first started becoming more aware and focusing more attention on my spirituality 11s started popping up everywhere. So much so that they became a mathematical improbability.
In numerology 11 is a Master Number and the symbol of a spiritual messenger. Master numbers are influenced & built upon their single-digit counterparts - meaning they hold a higher frequency of their counterpart's energy. 11 carries a lot of the energies of the number 2, such as harmony & empathy, as well as 11 also holds the energies of the number 1, such as creativity & innovation.
I found it interesting that even in the bible it speaks of the number 11. Although from a different perspective - it symbolizes chaos, disorder, and judgment because they believed that the number 10 represents law and responsibility so the number 11 coming after is seen as the breaking of laws that leads to disorder, chaos, and judgment.

I've personally never been drawn to Aquamarine, but sitting there with it on my beadboard I felt drawn so completely to it - I knew I needed something from it. The feeling that comes over me is similar to thirst, and filling my energy field with stones that I am drawn to is like taking a big drink of water.
At the beginning of this post, I mentioned I am learning to surrender to my intuition through working with a pendulum. Reading up on this stone I am diving deeper into why I was called to create this necklace for myself.
The legend of Aquamarine is that of a seafarer's protection talisman bringing fearlessness & bravery. Aquamarine is also a stone of self-love, inner peace, compassion for self & others. Being a water stone, Aquamarine brings us in touch with our subconscious, the domains of spirit, and our deepest emotions. For women, Aquamarine brings clarity and courage to express one’s deeper knowing. Stone of empowerment – it helps one realize that not all power comes from force.
Aquamarine embodies all things connected to the sea, as well as those things relating to Heaven, reflected on the surface of the water. It becomes a mirror, reflecting itself indefinitely, making it possible to discover hidden meanings of reality. As a stone of symmetries, it is conducive for meditation and revelation, a stone of prophets, shamans, healers, and mystics. It also allows us to explore the darkest depths of our souls, face to face with ourselves, and with others. [Megemont, 31-32]
I feel as if I'm just scratching the surface, but it's becoming clear why 11s and Aquamarine have come together in this necklace for me. I am excited to see where the work with my intuition will take me and I believe this necklace is here to help me navigate this work that I am currently being called to do. Thank you for reading, I look forward to adding any key information that comes up for me throughout the next little while.
Is there a stone you're being called to? Are you interested in having an 11:11 necklace created for you?
