Remeshok Chetki- Zircuti Edition

The Remeshok chetki, with its refined minimalist geometry, is set on fire by the contrasting organic grains of the zircuti material. The material itself is made from folded layers of titanium and zirconium, which are then precision machined, polished smooth, and torched with high temperature to create the gorgeous topographic colour patterns. These are a classy companion, playable art, and high end jewelry. The gorgeous beads are strung up on our custom made kevlar cord, for durability and longevity.. easily replaceable should you ever wish or need to. 

The Remeshok chetki are Aroundsquare's modern take on the jointed plate style chetki which are commonly found in Russia. The name Remeshok comes from the Russian word for "strap", reflecting the clean lines of the set. Each set consists of 18 small rectangular beads, plus two tapered end beads, strung together on 300 lb kevlar cord. The resulting set has a simple, minimalist look, but represents a great deal of refinement and streamlining in the development process. 

The elegant Zircuti material is forged from folded layers of titanium and zirconium, then precision machined, polished, and torched to create eye-popping colour patterns, reminiscent of wood grain. When machined to our specifications, the grains of the material become exposed in a way that accentuates the appearance of the curves, creating a beautiful topographic relief. These beads feature a slight etch, giving them a lightly textured feel that provides some grip as well as an interesting tactile feel you won't find in other sets.

General Information on Chetki

Chetki, or more correctly, perekidnye chetki (перекидные четки), are a type of flipping beads that developed in Russia. Also known as “Russian prison beads”, the origins of chetki trace back to a linear style rosary. As the story goes, looped rosaries were not allowed in Russian prisons, but the shorter linear style were permitted. With idle time to pass, the flipping of chetki became common, and secular models designed with flipping in mind became popular, often sporting engraved "tattoos" matching those of their owners, or other images of significance. Over time, the manipulation of perekidnye (flipping) chetki (перекидные четки) has developed into an art in its own right, and the secular embodiments of the beads designed purely for flipping have begun to proliferate. Modern perekidnye chetki are specifically designed for manipulation, much like a balisong or a set of begleri, and with practice, a wide variety of tricks and combinations can be performed.
