Inspiration
In the Cause of Baha?u?llah, it is incumbent upon every soul to acquire a trade and an occupation. For example, I know how to weave or make a mat, and you know some other trade. This, in itself is an act of worship, provided that it is conducted on the basis of utmost honesty and faithfulness.
('Abdu'l-Bah? - The Arts, Pages 2-4)
 
Symbolism
The transition bead (Ojimi bead) is the result of hours of intensive labor by a master carver. This beautiful miniature work of art is based on an ancient design and is signed by its carver. The two crystals signify the B?b and Bah?'u'll?h as twin Manifestations. The green bead symbolizes the B?b as a siyyid?a descendant of the Prophet Mohammed. The nine-pointed star represents the Bah?'? Era.

These prayer beads are exquisite. Impressive as they look in the picture, they must be seen in person for their craftsmanship to be fully appreciated. The quality is such that I would have felt comfortable paying as much as $100 for the set. Most importantly, my experience of the daily prayers has been enhanced.
