The Angels is a prayer bead created to honour Michaelmas or All Angels Sunday. Michaelmas was originally dedicated to Saint Michael, but it has now become a Christian holiday dedicated to all angels. Angels are usually depicted as wearing bright white clothing so it is only natural that the Angels prayer bead is white in colour. It symbolises innocence, child’s faith and guardian angels. If you wish, you can see angel’s wings in the shape of a heart.
The Angels prayer bead is crafted from white wood beads. The hearts are made out of bleached palm wood and originate from a family business that mainly manufactures musical instruments. The family uses the excess wood that is left over from building the instruments in crafting the hearts of this prayer bead, for example. The cross is made out of Tagua palm and they come from a women's co-operative in Ecuador.
