Delicate Handmade Komboloi
- From the Eastern Mediterranean to the Middle East, worry beads - or prayer beads - cross religious boundaries and are carried by Orthodox Christian and Islamic men alike. The art of the worry bead (komboloi in Greek) is often heightened by the creation of more decorative styles. Here we offer an assortment of small scale komboloi in an array of unusual beads from around the world, many featuring the protective evil eye symbol and often in a shade of blue - the colour of luck. An eye-catching addition to any home or a most unusual gift. Unique pieces. No two alike.
