Hello every1, I have been looking for a certain type of bead for an art/service project at our church camp, IF anyone knows what they're called or where to find them i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
Here's a link to what I'm thinking, the beads with two holes so it wont flip around: http://www.holytrinitystore.com/icon-bracelet-sc186.html
You might want to try searching for 'icon beads,' 'saint beads,' or 'prayer beads.' I think that with the high Catholic influence in Mexico, many of these are made/used there as well.

They've cut religious pictures and glued them onto the wood bead. Buy some Tila beads, they are square and have 2 holes in them. Might want to add a layer of glaze over it, so it doesn't wear out and the image fall off.
