Begleri is a small skill toy consisting of wooded beads at either end of a short string or chain. It can be flipped and twirled around the fingers to perform tricks. The begleri originated in Greece, and was originally derived from the komboloi, which serves the function of worry beads, and are often flipped around to pass the time or keep the hands busy. While komboloia have beads forming a closed circle, begleri beads are threaded on an open strand, usually in a symmetrical formation, with equal weighting at either end These beads are handcrafted and one-of-a-kind. No two sets are the same. The body is wood and the ends are weighted with chrome buttons. Each set of Begleri come with a velvet bag. Wonderful gift for teenagers, and fidgety adults. Great desk toy.
