Tenners or Gebetskette Zehners (prayer chain with 10 beads) became popular in the 16th century. As the name implies, they were chaplets consisting of 10 beads. Sometimes another bead was added which was usually larger than the 10 beads and sometimes had bead caps and/or spacers separating it from the other beads. In addition to these beads there was a tassel, saint's metal, credo cross, crucifix or some kind of pendant. Often a number of these items were used in combination at the end of the prayer beads.
