Given the great comments and nice presentations on the web site, my expectations were high. The items I received (3 wrist mala and a 108 bead mala) greatly exceeded what I expected. Care is obvious in everything from the packaging to the artisan-ship of the items themselves. These are gifts for my daughters who inspire me to be a better person every moment and dark rosewood for my father-in-law in his fight against cancer. I sincerely believe they will have these items to reflect on for many years to come. Thank you to the artisans and DharmaShop for making these wonderful items available.
I can not tell you how much I love the 'labradorite wrist mala'. I bought two. I always pair it with the 'friendship bracelet stack' (another Dharma shop product). I look at my wrist, and feel happy. There is a shimmering opalescence to the stones. The color of the labradorite goes with just about any outfit. I like to wear it daily. It may take a while to learn how to adjust the slip knot fit on your own, but once you get it (don't use your teeth!) It is a piece of cake.
I love this bracelet. It’s wonderful.
