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.

These icon beads are so special and they are not sold everywhere. Maybe you can look for them in some specific stores.
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.
