Malas are commonly used as a tool for meditation, to help the mind focus on repeating mantras in sets of 108. My flower mala has 108 natural brown Eaglewood beads with a Czech crystal marker after the 21st bead. I make the tassel from very earthy rust linen thread from Lithuania and the head bead is brass, inlaid with turquoise and coral. This is a lovely necklace, whether or not you meditate.
The 8mm wood beads hang 17″, the tassel is 5″, and the head bead is 1 3/4″ including spacers.
You will receive the mal6in the picture.
I will send in an organza gift bag.
Thank you for stopping by my shop! Rebecca:)
