Traditional Inlaid Bone Wrist Mala

18   |  

Beautiful inlaid bone bead wrist mala!  These bone beads are inlaid with turquoise and coral, and copper and white metal for a unique, traditional look.  

The traditional bone beads are hand inlaid with copper and white metal, and turquoise and coral.  Each bead is entirely unique, but has gone through some wear and tear during the storage and shipping process from Nepal.  Nevertheless, these bone beads and their flaws allow us to further reflect upon the Buddhist teachings of impermanence.  They serve as a reminder to live in the present moment; because nothing is permanent, everything is possible.

Tibetan nomadic life is hard, and in the cold there is little to eat.  Water buffalo is a main staple in Nepal and Tibet and when an animal is used for food nothing is wasted.  These amazing beads are hand inlaid by artisans who recycle and reuse everything in daily life and spiritual practice.

This adjustable wrist mala is strung on black cord and when fully closed fits wrists that are 6 inches around; when fully open, it fits wrists 9 inches around.  Includes twenty-seven 8mm inlaid bone beads.  Handmade in Nepal.

A handsome addition to my wrist!!

Bone with fine detail and presence

Beautiful piece with strong energy- very balanced and grounding. Aesthetically pleasing. Dharmashop’s creations possess a grace that is difficult to find in 1 place. I bought many items since I found them. They may be objects but they possess spiritual resonance.

Lovely & Thoughtful Bracelet

I've had this bracelet about six months now and really love it. Haven't had any trouble with the cord or the knots, but just recently, the filler in the beads has started coming out a little. It's almost like smudges on the beads, and small chunks have come out on a couple of them. This may be from getting wet when I wash my hands, so I'd recommend keeping it dry. Otherwise, beautiful piece - I wear it nearly every day.

Great bracelet, but even better customer service!

I've found several wonderful things on this site before, but my recent purchase of this mala was the first time I received one where the string started falling apart days after I got it. I reached out and asked for advice on how to fix it, and they said they'd be sending me a new one! Again, beautiful mala, wonderful service.
