This is my favorite wrist mala from Dharma Shop! Each bead is unique and it reminds me of the work the artists invested in each bead. Love the colors and how the bone skull beads remind me of impermanence. Thank you, Dharma Shop, for supporting these artists and offering wrist malas that truly contain their own uniqueness.
The craftsmanship is amazing. It is my favorite wrist Mala and I wear it all the time. I would suggest not wearing the adjustable size Mala in water. I think the knots on mine began to come apart after being in water too often, but I tied them off and burned the ends and it’s good as new. It’s exactly what I expected it to be and more. Beautiful product.
The beads are so wonderfully unique and well made. I love wearing it and the feeling it gives me. Always reminded to be mindful and present when I look at it.
Love the bracelet & the beads. It’s a little difficult to get on & off but I think the knots will loosen over time so that it slides easier.
Hello John, thanks for taking the time to write this review! You are absolutely correct when stating the knot will loosen over time. With the natural oils from our skin, hand-washing etc. that will cause slight wear to the natural fiber cord, making it much easier to open and close the more it is worn! Thanks again for your feedback, and for your support of Himalayan artisans!
Having pondered for some time I purchased one of these inlaid Bodhi Seed and Skull bracelets many months ago. I am as delighted with it now as I was when it first arrived. The only advice I'd give is try not to get it wet as the cord does stretch slightly. However, mine has seen some heavy wear and is still my precious mala bracelet of choice.
