Worry beads can be handled in many different ways. The most common method is to start at one end of the thread or chain, near the shield, and to pull the thread forward using that hand's thumb and the side of the index finger until one of the beads is reached. Then the cord is tipped so that the bead falls and hits the shield. This is repeated until all the beads have been tipped and then the user starts over.
Komboloi is used to pass the time and relax. So, browse our collection, keep calm and play komboloi.
