I love the mala and wear it constantly but unfortunately the Om Mani inscription on the Naga shell is washing away. It is no longer at all bold and I suspect will eventually fade away altogether. Since it is a natural shell bead that has been painted I guess I'm not surprised. Just be aware of this if you buy one.
Scott, thank you for your feedback! We're so sorry to hear that the mantra on your wrist mala is fading away and we would love to exchange it! If that's something you're interested in, please email email@example.com and we would love to take care of it for you! We appreciate you taking the time to write a review and thank you for supporting Himalayan artisans!
I bought this for myself but it was way to small for a normal man sized wrist. I gave it to my 16 y/o niece who loves it.
I love the homemade look and love that I'm wearing something meaningful.
We are delighted with the Onyx and Om Mani hand carved spacer bead we recently purchased online. This has become a favorite bracelet to wear and a treasured piece in my collection.
I often can't wear bracelets or wrist malas because they're too large. However, this one works well for me. It's really attractive and I love the carved bead.
