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 SLATE BLUE BEADS
The larger sized Anglican prayer beads are constructed of slate blue 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 slate 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.
The charms recommended are coordinated to each cross based on finish, theme and appearance.
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.


The SLATE BLUE Collection

+The recommended crosses for the slate blue beads are shown below +
+ Other crosses available by request +
+ Prices vary with cross selected +

  • Blue is used to symbolize hope and the eternal changelessness of God.
  • It is also used to represent the Virgin Mary and is the traditional colour used for Marian feasts throughout the liturgical year.
  • Blue was used in the early English church as the preferred color for the season of Advent, which by many is referred to as "Mary's Season", since the gospel readings revolve around the events leading up to the birth of Christ.
