Just arrived from Boudhanath in Kathmandu Nepal. Customers have been asking for traditional seed beads that are not as large or as expensive as bodhi seeds. Raktu beads are sustainably harvested seeds from a tree in the rudrashka family. They are 8mm and make fantastic malas. This mala is hand strung with carnelian spacers and a new bone Dzi bead.
strung on stretchy cord to fit wrists 5 to 8 inches
