A custom komboloi will be exact on your hand size. The length of Komboloi is very importance. It is to be so just enough to wrap around the palm. Between the two rows of beaded and “Pappas” (called as the largest bead to the edge of the chaplet) there must be a gap, a distance of about four and half fingers.

Older prefer greater distance because help to bump one bead bumped to another with more speed and stronger beat. The beads should always be an odd number and this for three reasons: The first has to do with the visual, design and balance. The single bead at the bottom creates a perfect semicircle. The second is a special game with beads, very favorite and usual. Allow the two to two beads to fall downward, creating a rhythmic sound, melodic. When all the pairs are finished, the single bead plays an important role. Prevent the rosary to fall on the ground, to leave our hands. Third and last is because the odd number always brings luck and happiness to its owner. We can design a unique custom komboloi to fit exactly on your hand.

Worry beads or kombolói, kompoloi (Greek: κομπολόι, IPA: [ko(m)boˈloj], bead collection; plural: κομπολόγια, IPA: [ko(m)boˈloʝa]) is a string of beads manipulated with one or two hands and used to pass time in Greek and Cypriot culture. Unlike the similar prayer beads used in many religious traditions, including the Greek Orthodox komboskini, worry beads have no religious or ceremonial purpose.

Etymology: Modern Greek κομπολόι is derived from κομβολόγιον < κόμβος “knot” + -λόγιο “collection”. It is sometimes said that it is short for the phrase σε κάθε κόμπο προσευχή λέω, “in every knot I say a prayer”- κόμπο “knot”-λέω “say” > κόμπο-λέω > κομπολόι. This etymology accounts for the fact that κομπολόι evolved from κομποσκοίνι, the Greek word for prayer rope.

For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have utilized the power of crystals to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages, thus facilitating the free flow of throughout the body. On a cellular level, our bodies and quartz crystal are both made up of mineral silicon-dioxide. Because of this, we are naturally receptive to the vibrations of crystals as they transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. When crystals are placed directly on your body, they have a powerful vibratory effect that surges from the crystal to you. According to the law of physics, thoughts direct energy and energy follows thought. Each of our crystal energy pieces serve as a tool to help the thoughts of our consciousness connect with our body.

Ebony is a dense black hardwood, most commonly yielded by several different species in the genus Diospyros. Ebony is dense enough to sink in water. It is finely-textured and has a very smooth finish when polished, making it valuable as an ornamental wood. The word ebony derives from the Ancient Egyptian hbny, via the Ancient Greek ἔβενος (ébenos),

Ebony has a long history of use, with carved pieces having been found in Ancient Egyptian tombs. By the end of the 16th century, fine cabinets for the luxury trade were made of ebony in Antwerp. The wood’s dense hardness lent itself to refined moldings framing finely detailed pictorial panels with carving in very low relief (bas-relief), usually of allegorical subjects, or with scenes taken from classical or Christian history. Within a short time, such cabinets were also being made in Paris, where their makers became known as ébénistes, which remains the French term for a cabinetmaker. Elephant carvings from Sri Lanka, made from ebony, in this case likely Gabon ebony (Diospyros crassiflora)

The “legendary” definition of FATURAN  sometimes referred to as Amber Faturan is as follows,  a mixture of natural amber, resins and incense. The technique of sticking together the shavings of amber together with a mixture of secret natural resins and incense to turn it into a solid material is unknown until today. This method was invented by an Arab named Faturan in the 19th century some even go as far as the 17th century, and that material carried his name ever since.

In fact the most famous reference for beads, the book titled, The History of Beads From 30,000 BC To The Present, by L.S. Dubin, does not mention the word Faturan , not even one single time ! This clearly indicates that the word Faturan and its legend were simply invented some time after 1987, date at which the above book was published.

However the true story is that the material designated as FATURAN is a material that derives from BAKELITE which itself was developed in 1907-1909 by the Belgian chemist Dr. Leo Baekland. Bakelite is basically a thermosetting phenol formaldehyde synthetic resin.
