Wish Beads

Komboloi Beads are used to relieve stress and pass the time; they are frequently referred to as worry beads. On a recent trip to Greece I was told by a local man that they are used to help keep your hands busy to stop smoking; he referred to the beads as 'wish beads'.
I discovered the wish beads in a wooden box that was on a table at Andronis Luxury Resort in Oia. I couldn't help but drag them out and trail them across the aged wood table to take this picture (yes, I stage everything in my path).
