Almost all old Arab and Turkish men have worry beads set to pass their time by passing the beads through their fingers again and again. Usually they are made of precious stones or even gold. So, I turned my worry beads set out of osage orange to look like gold. I cut two sets, the wooden one that you see today and acrylic set that I will work on latter (as shown in photo 4 ). I needed special screw chuck to turn the beads one by one ( as shown in photos 5 & 6 )
According to the rules, each set of worry beads has to be made of 3 sections separated by two flat beads and each section contains odd number of beads starts from 11, 13 or 15 and so on.
Until the next one: Don’t Worry, Be Happy.
