Handmade kids bracelets with inserts of natural pearls are woven by the monks of Mount Athos. The length of the bracelets depends on the number of pearls; each one consists of pearls and plastic grains. Smal seed beads of golden color are placed between them. The bracelet has a metal cross woven into it, which makes it not just a piece of jewelry, but a Christian symbol of faith.
Like all Athos handicrafts, the bracelets 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.
