This bold bracelet features Dzi style beads with dark water buffalo bone spacer beads. Dzi beads are believed to offer protection for the wearer.
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, utensils, 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 fits wrists from 5 to 8 inches in circumference. Current bracelets have 6 Dzi beads each. Beads are approximately 7 by 14mm. Handmade in Nepal.
