The Triple Spiral prayer beads are made with gorgeous, large 10mm purple jasper rounds. These unusual beads have striking color, and each one is unique with its own range of purple hue. Purple jasper is thought to assist in eliminating contradiction and stimulate the crown chakra.
There are 27 focal beads, which is 3 x 3 x 3, which is also reflected in the sterling silver triskele center which binds the strand. Sterling silver spacers hang between the beads - just enough to add a bit more definition between the beads.
These are a style of pocket prayer beads - as they can be tucked easily in a pocket and fit in your hand. Many people hang these around their wrist when using them. The dangle is hand-wrapped sterling wire with three purple jasper roundels, sterling spacers and a fine silver bell handmade from Bali. The bell is approximately a quarter-inch in diameter and makes a gentle sound when the prayer beads are used. Bells have been used spiritually since ancient times when they were thought to drive away evil spirits.
The strand is approximately 8 inches in length from the middle of the beads to the tip of the bell. The circumference of the strand is approximately 12 inches and the dangle is about 2 and a quarter inches long - from the top of the triskele to the bottom of the bell. They have a wonderful, compassionate energy about them.
The Triple Spiral prayer beads are strung on 49-strand professional beading wire for strength and durability, and are finished with sterling silver crimps. They will arrive carefully packaged in an organza bag with a descriptive card, ready to be given as a gift for someone special, or maybe even yourself.
