These Worry Beads are handmade and imported from Greece. They are made with a plastic that looks and feels like glass, but is not fragile like glass. The silver-colored beads and emblems are metal.
Greek Worry Beads (Komboloi) originated thousands of years ago in the prayer beads of many cultures and traditions...Hindu, Christian and Muslim. Today they are used for their comforting effect....helping smokers to quit, the anxious to breathe more deeply, the very pregnant to be patient...and as a remembrance to all of the Greek people and their culture.
