What do you think about Orthodox Christians wearing these bracelets? You can find them almost anywhere and they are very cheap, and sort of neat, albeit on the tacky side. I see a lot of RCs wearing them. I've considered buying one numerous times, but then I always cop out because the images seem undeniably RC in nature.

Ah! Neat! Now that's more like it! I like them a lot! But, I notice they are much more pricey than the RC bracelets (not surprising). Sad

Thanks, ozgeorge, for the link!

That's just too much.

What's wrong with a prayer rope? I don't like those icon braclets since it seems like making Orthodoxy into a fad. That's my opinion at least. When wearing a prayer rope though, I really hate when people wear it just to wear it so if it's worn, it should be used.

Festal Creations has icon bracelets made of hematite.  I hear they are getting (or perhaps already have) wooden ones.  The icons are Orthodox, and the prices are very reasonable.  I discussed the hematite ones here:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,19341.0.html

This is their website:

http://www.festalcreations.com/

The website has not been updated in a long time, so the bracelets won't be on it.  But if you e-mail them, they'll e-mail, or traditionally mail, flyers to you with info about the bracelets.

Thanks, Salpy! I just read your thread-for some reason I had missed it.

What about medals, also worn by RC's. I have blessed medals of St Peter and St. Paul, and St. Christopher from my trip to Rome, as well as an Our Lady of Zarazoga rosary from Zarazoga, Spain (The Virgin was supposed to have appeared on a Pillar to St. James the Apostle).

I've noticed quite a few people from my church wearing medals on their necklaces (of the Theotokos, I think). I don't really care for it for some reason (not sure why). I rather like these bracelets, but am still a bit undecided about them even.

I can't believe how expensive the Orthodox version of these bracelets are!  Here in Los Angeles, you can get Roman Catholic ones for 99 cents (wood) or the hematite ones for less than five bucks.

The Festal Creation ones are less than five dollars.  If I recall correctly, the hematite ones are about $2.50 each, less if you buy in quantity, like for a church bookstore.  I don't know about the wooden ones, but the guy who runs Festal Creations tends to keep the prices very low.  I think it's more of a ministry for him than a business.

That's great, Salpy.  Thanks for the info.  I'm definitely going to contact him.
