These Anglican prayer beads are comprised of 4 sets of seven 7 beads called "weeks". The number seven represents wholeness and completion and reminds us of the 7 days of creation and 7 days of the temporal week. 4 "cruciform" beads separate the "weeks". They represent the centrality of the cross in our lives and faith. Near the cross is the "invitatory" bead which makes a total of 33 beads-the number of years of Jesus' life on earth.
These styles of Anglican beads are created with all gem stones (1), mixed gem stones/wood beads (2) and all wood beads (3-6).
