Inlaid Bodhi Seed and Skull Wrist Mala

  • This eclectic and bold wrist mala from Nepal makes for a very unique accessory!
  • Made with a mixture of bodhi seed beads and naturally stained bone beads that have been inlaid with pieces of brass, copper, silver, coral and turquoise chips.  Also features hand carved skull-shaped spacers.
  • Bone beads, and the skull beads especially, allow us to further reflect upon the Buddhist teachings of impermanence.  They serve as a reminder to live in the present moment and be here now; 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 bone beads are handcrafted by artisans who recycle and reuse everything in daily life and spiritual practice.

Adjustable wrist mala measures approximately 6.75 inches around when fully tightened and opens to about 9 inches.  Bodhi and bone beads are 12-13mm, skull beads are about 7x11mm.
