- This mala necklace and bracelet set is handcrafted in Nepal with naturally stained vintage-style bone beads inlaid with pieces of turquoise, coral, and brass.
- The 108 bead mala is finished with a uniquely crafted guru bead to complete the traditional Tibetan vibe.
- The wrist mala features an intricately carved bone skull centerpiece. In Buddhism, the skull is often recognized as a symbol of impermanence.
Wearing this set is a great way to reflect on the Buddhist teachings of impermanence in your daily practice. It serves as a reminder to live in the present moment; because nothing is permanent, everything is possible.
A note about bone usage: In the Himalayas, it is typical for large animals such as yak or water buffalo to be used for service, food, clothing, and ritual items. Given the limited amount of resources and the religious practices of the people in the region, it is important that none of the animal goes to waste. These amazing inlaid bone beads are handcrafted by artisans who recycle and reuse everything in daily life and spiritual practice.

Small bracelet measures about 6.5 inches around.
Large is about 7-7.25 inches around.
