This bold men's bracelet was designed by DharmaShop owner Sander Cohen and is hand strung on elastic cord in Detroit with elements from all over the world. Small, dark, bodhi seed beads from Nepal are contrasted with sleek naga shell beads from Nagaland and a single brass accent bead. This strong design looks great on it's own or paired with your favorite watch or bracelet stack.
Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting all types of mantras as well as other prayers. These dark-speckled seed beads have special meaning for all seekers of divine wisdom. "Bodhi" in Sanskrit means enlightenment; as an "enlightened" seed, many practitioners use these malas for their essence and inherent teachings within each seed.
The naga/conch shell represents the fame of the Buddha's teaching which spreads in all directions like the sound of the conch trumpet. It is a symbol which fearlessly proclaims the truth of the dharma.
Bracelet measures approximately 7 inches around. Beads are about 13-14mm.
