This mama was for a Sister of mine so my review is late however she loves them. She stated they are crafted well and love the buffalo skull elders on it.
Showed up even more beautiful in person. I really like how strong the cord feels.
I use this more for decoration rather than wearing, but I love it & it looks great hanging around a painting.
I was searching for a bone beaded mala but wasn't sure about the darker color beads. I decided to follow the great ratings of others and am so pleased that I did. Wonderful feel and sound to them. Tightly corded but that will loosen over time. I recommend too!
I was super excited when I placed my order and my excitement grew awaiting its arrival. I can honestly say that my expectations were still exceeded. I love my mala.
