Job's Tears - 60 beads

$7.00

Product Description

By nature, every Job's Tears bead is unique.  They differ in size, shape and color.  The #15 pin works well, and should be inserted from the bottom (flat part of the bead) and pushed out through the top.  Remove any of the papery core that might come through with the pin. Sold in units of 60 beads. The following is a brief history about "Job's Tears": They are  called "Coix lacryma-jobi" in botanical nomenclature. That is the Latin way of saying "Job's Tears." They are the product of an annual grass that produces a fruit shaped like a tear drop. Since no one shed more tears than the Biblical Job, its name was secured. An alternate name, used by some Catholic rosary makers is "Mary's Tears."

    Good product. A bit smaller on the whole than expected. Does not have the seemingly high shine/gloss the catalog image shows, but does have a low gloss.
