Old Yemeni prayer beads of black coral and inlaid silver are the main feature of this bracelet. The silver shows a some wear, a sign of many prayers having been said. Smaller black African horn beads and round frosted onyx beads lead to Bali silver and a sterling toggle clasp. The African horn is also from my older stash of beads. They have a wonderful smooth luminosity and are a pleasure to work with ... and to wear.
I recently checked online to find out more about the Yemeni prayer beads and discovered that today this type and quality is quite rare -- and expensive! My price for this bracelet is more commensurate with what I paid for the beads years ago, not the fortune asked for them today on eBay!.
