Fredericks & Mae Worry Beads | Grey
These strung wooden beads by Fredericks & Mae, adorned with thread and a horse-hair tassel, can be worn as a statement necklace or displayed as a beautiful objet d'art. These beads were inspired by the worry beads, or kombolói, used in Greek and Cypriot culture, which were manipulated with one or two hands and used to pass time. (Unlike similar prayer beads used in many religious traditions, such worry beads had no religious or ceremonial purpose.) At their longest, small worry beads are 27" long, and feature a small tassel. Made by hand in the duo's Brooklyn studio, each one is unique.
