Atelier-b 126phAtelier-Beads  ROSARY BEADS, PRAYER, DEVOTION, MEDITATION    The word "bead" comes directly from the old English word for "prayer."  I derive great satisfaction from creating prayer beads   for all Christian faiths, including traditional Catholic rosaries, Anglican beads, Orthodox chotkis, and     the Lutheran "Wreath of Christ." I have recently stepped outside my own spiritual path to create a set       of Juzu, Buddhist prayer beads, for my brother.
