SYMBOLISM OF THE COLOURS


+ 10mm turquoise blue beads which are hand knotted between the week beads +
+ Turquoise, a variation of blue, is the symbolic colour of sea and sky. It represents the eternal changelessness of God and the manifestation of God in nature. Both blue and turquoise are a reminder of God's goodness in blessing us with the gift of his son, and our hope in him, in spite of our undeservedness.+
+ The recommended crosses for the turquoise blue beads are shown below +

+ Prices vary with cross selected +

ABOUT OUR BEADS
Our beads are made to be used, not to be collector items. After years of making and selling prayer beads in various sizes constructed of various materials we have opted to offer our quality beads as 10mm round habit beads. This decision was based on a variety of reasons. The size and shape make the beads suitable for hands of all sizes. Additionally, the beads are made of high quality resin or acrylic making them very durable, yet lightweight enough to easily carry in pocket or pouch. They are resistant to cracking, chipping, and splitting which can occur with other types of beads when used regularly.
The habit beads have a high gloss finish making them aesthetically pleasing. Most importantly, however, is that they are very comfortable to use. While beads made of 'real' stones are inherently assumed to be better than beads made from acrylic or resin plastics, they also have a tendency to be as cold as the rocks they came from, particularly at the 10-12mm size. This can distract the user from the task at hand, mainly focusing on the prayers. Our beads are functional, attractive, and meant to be used.
The TURQUOISE BLUE BEADS
The larger sized Anglican prayer beads are constructed of shiny finish acrylic 10mm opaque beads for the week beads, 12mm round black shiny finish acrylic beads for the cruciform beads, and black 6/0 Czech glass spacer beads. They are strung on heavy duty 1mm waxed wrapped cotton cord which is hand knotted between week beads.
The crosses for the turquoise blue beads have been selected by theme and are attached to the beads by a jump ring so that, if desired, they may easily be replaced with a different cross or medallion.
Hand knotting the beads reduces wear on the string as well as chaffing of the beads themselves. An additional safety feature is that, in the event the beads should break, the knotting will prohibit all the beads from coming off the string and will keep large portions, if not all, of the beads intact.

Turquoise Prayer Beads
TURQUOISE HABIT BEADS with Goldtone CRUX ANSATA
Item #10TRQ-CA
Clean, simple styled Crux Ansata, or Ankh with, matching charm.
The crux ansata, or ankh, is an ancient Egyptian symbol of life. It is also called an eyed cross, or handled cross, with the upper loop literally representing a sandel strap. The crux ansata brings together the hope of eternal life and Christ's redemptive power. The horizontal and vertical bars of the lower, Tau portion of the cross represent both feminine and masculine and suggest fertility and procreation. This symbolism was adopted by Coptic Christians, especially gnostic sects, to symbolize the resurrection of Christ and the heavenly marriage of Christ and the church. The ankh and Tau crosses were earlier forms of the cross than the more commonly seen “Latin” cross, or crux immissa, of today. The crux immissa came into common use after the First Council of Nicaea covened by Constantine in 325.
The charms recommended for the Crux Ansata are either the goldtone Anchor charm, an ancient Christian symbol representing hope in the Resurrection, a goldtone Miraculous Medal, or a matching medal depicting St. Therese of Lisieux, also known as “The Little Flower".
+ The Miraculous Medal also known as the Medal of the Immaculate Conception, was originated in 1830 by Saint Catherine Labouré following her vision of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is goldtone over aluminum.
+ St. Theresa was the third woman to be declared a Doctor of the Church and is best known for her “little way”, which is to seek sanctity in everyday life by doing small things with great love. Her writings are timeless lessons on how to love God with one’s whole heart in the simple pattern of daily life. She teaches us how to suffer in Him, with Him, and through Him, in great love.
The goldtone Crux Ansata is TWO inches in length. Overall length 12 inches.
