Simple and unassuming, this mala is perfect for me - and delivered as promised in excellent condition. The beads are very nice, the cord is sturdy and the knot is really well done.
I rarely write reviews, but I felt the need to provide one. First, the mala is top quality - great beads and the skull has excellent detail. The skull is a little more on the cream / bone color than the brown in the photo - still looks excellent. The mala is a wonderful reminder of impermanence in my daily practice. Second, the customer experience at dharma shop is excellent. From quickly answering questions to replacing my first wrist mala that had a problem with the tightener, the experience has been great.
