Handmade, hand knotted mala necklace created with positive vibes and good fortune! This mala has 108 beads made from dark polished wood, Tibetan agate (good for grounding, concentration and good fortune), Garnets (courage and strength), and Tigers Eye (courage and confidence) with a ceramic good luck cat talisman as a guru bead. This necklace would be wonderful for someone embarking on a new path, but that's just my interpretation--If a mala resonates with you, then it is the right mala for you!
It goes on over the head or wrapped as a bracelet, and is lighter and shorter than many malas because the beads are petite, ranging from 4-6mm. A vibrant, red silk cord is used to bring these elements together, bringing this to 27 inches total; it fits over the head easily, but is much more dainty and shorter than typical malas.
This necklace can be used for meditation, as it has the traditional 108 beads, and knotted between each bead to act as the space between breaths in counting mantras. As this is a traditional hand knotted mala, it may damaged by water, sweat, or vigorous activity, and as with any gemstone jewelry, stones may crack with force. While philosophically a broken mala is considered part of the natural order, keep away from water and sweat for longevity.
