About Our Beads
Materials - Prayer beads in this catalog are made of natural materials: semi- precious stones, freshwater pearls, bone, wood. Crosses are sterling, gold- or silver-plate, pewter, or stone. Beads are either 6 mm weeks and 8 mm cruciform or all 8 mm. Full Circle Beads uses nylon-coated flexible wire to string beads. If the wire breaks, don't worry: beads can be restrung.
Size - Catalog entries list the length of the cross. As a general rule, prayer beads made of 6 mm weeks and 8 mm cruciform beads are 7" to 9" in length from the tip of the cross to the top of the circle of beads. Prayer beads made of 8 mm stones are generally 2" to 3" longer. You can ask that additional seed beads be used to make your prayer beads longer.
Touch - Think about your favorite necklace or set of beads when selecting prayer beads. Beads have different feel (smooth like glass, soft like a pearl, and textured like wood -- most semiprecious stones are smooth) and weight (hematite is heavy like a magnet; bone and wood are light; most semiprecious stones fall between these two weights).
Custom Orders - In addition to the prayer beads found in this catalog, sets can be custom made. However, if our beaders are busy, custom orders may take a few weeks to fulfill. Contact us with your ideas.
