Prayer rope made of pearls

Handmade prayer rope made of pearls with inserts of seed beads is woven by the monks of Mount Athos. The weaving of the prayer ropes is one of the main types of monastic handicraft, as it is an important attribute of prayer. It sets the rhythm and helps one to concentrate during a long prayer.

The length of this prayer rope with tossel is 85 cm, the length of the thread is 130 cm; it consists of natural pearls and plastic seed beads of different shapes and sizes. Smaller plastic and metal inserts are placed between the beads. A cross made of pearls and seed beads with a rayon tassel is woven into the prayer rope.

Like all Athos handicrafts, the prayer ropes are woven by hand with diligence and unceasing prayer. Labor is an integral part of monastic life. According to tradition, each monk chooses work according to his liking and abilities; he then works daily, while praying incessantly. This is why every such piece of handicraft work is a priceless gift and a true blessing from the Holy Mountain.
