The cruciform beads are 8mm filigree beads.

This gives the prayer beads a distinct feel between each of the week beads. It also ensures durability. -History of Anglican Prayer Beads: Since the earliest of times, people have used pebbles or a string of knots or beads on a cord to keep track of prayers offered to God. Virtually every major religious tradition in the world uses some form of prayer beads. The 33 bead Anglican Episcopal Rosary was conceived in the mid 1980s by Reverend Lynn Bauman through the inspirations from a contemplative prayer group. The design incorporates several elements from both the Orthodox Chotki or prayer rope and the Catholic Rosary. -The prayer beads will arrive in a gift box with a booklet that has instructions as well as several sample prayers. *We strive for 100% satisfaction: Brenda Elaine Jewelry is a family owned business located in Pennsylvania.
