Default Prayer Bead (Chotki, Komboskini)

I saw an EO priest with a Komboskini, but it had both the knots and color beads in between. And it looked like it had a clasp as opposed to the typical one that you roll over your hand to get on your wrist.

Anyone know where to get one like that and anyone have any pics to share of it?

Thanks

it was a wrist one that had the knots and I think blue beads between each knot and it looked like it had a clasp so you can put it on your wrist as opposed to rolling it over your hand as they usually come.

A Rosary I own looks like this (credit card sized); do they have a Chotki like that?...do you know?

I'm Serb EO so I saw one of our priests wear it. I didn't get a chance to ask him. Typically all the komboskinis I've seen are either wool or nylon and they just roll onto your wrist. They typically would have colored bead (blue/red)

The one he had had blue black and looked like small gold in it.

Yea all the ones I've seen have been the wool or nylon types you just roll onto your wrist, I wasn't even aware there were ones with clasps! I'm Antiochian, we actually have a few Serbs that regularly attend our parish- actually Serbs, Russians, and a few Greeks, the diversity is nice. Then there's German and Polish me worshiping with mostly Lebanese with an Egyptian priest, love it!

See, looking at that I'm wondering how you can feel the difference between one knot and the next - it looks pretty much like a solid band to me.

I guess if I felt one I'd probably know.

As you use it the rope will stretch out a little; or you can just give it a slight tug from both ends and the knots will seperate a little bit... if you seperate them too much though then you have the single strands of wool between the knots and it's liable to wear more quickly I've found...

I have fallen in love with this one:

I think I am going to replicate it as best I can in the future since I don't have the money for it AND s&h.

Default Eastern Orthodox prayer beads...meaning of

I am Roman Catholic. I have a friend who was just advised by a Roman Catholic priest to get prayer beads used in the Eastern Orthodox Church. He says it is for meditation.

Can anyone please explain this to me?

Can you explain what the prayer beads are for, and how to use them, and what they help to accomplish, and how?
