This is a kit that includes everything you need to make your own set of Protestant (Anglican) prayer beads. This is an earthy set that includes 4 amber fire-polished glass cruciform beads and 1 invitatory bead; 29 multicolored wood beads; 36 gold seed beads; 1 crimp bead; and 1 antiqued-gold pewter Tierra Cast Talavera cross that comes attached to approximately 21 inches of 49-strand beading wire. You will also receive a few "extra" beads for "just in case!"
We also provide you with a full set of instructions for assembling the prayer beads as well as a brochure that explains the rich history and symbolism of prayer beads and provides a sample prayer.
Note: given that these are multicolored beads, each kit will include a variety of colors and may not match exactly with the color pattern in the photos.
Note: the last photo is for illustration purposes only, to show what the finished product will look like.
We can offer larger quantities of kits (10 or more) at a volume discount. We offer 10% off of 10 or more kits, and 20% off of 20 or more. If you are interested in placing a bulk order, let us know and we'll create a custom listing for you.
We write devotions for prayer beads, which we post often on our blog. Check it out at www.prayerworksstudio.com.
Most in-stock items will ship within 3-5 business days from receipt of payment UNLESS there is a notice in our shop announcement pertaining to current shipping times. Custom orders will ship as soon as the order is completed, generally within 5-7 business days from receipt of payment. We do lead busy lives, however, so if you need an order by a certain date, please contact us in advance to ensure we can meet your deadline.
We ship all items via USPS First Class Mail with insurance and delivery confirmation. You can choose to pay an additional fee for USPS Priority or Express Mail options.
We ship across the United States and throughout the world.
International orders: our prayer beads are in the hands of people around the globe and we love that! However, in terms of duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees, please note that such fees vary widely and we have no way of anticipating when and how they will be imposed. In the event that any such fees are imposed it will be the buyer's responsibility to pay them. In our years with Etsy we have only heard of this happening one time, so hopefully, you will be in good shape!
Multiple orders can be combined for shipping at no extra cost! We offer 10% off of 10 or more kits, and 20% off of 20 or more. If you are interested in placing a bulk order, let us know and we'll create a custom listing for you.
All items (except DIY prayer bead kits) are packaged in a gift bag and come with a guide to using the prayer beads and sample prayers.
Gifts: if your item is a gift and you want us to include a special message with it, please let us know! We love to help give gifts!
We accept payment via credit card, PayPal, or Etsy Checkout.
