This mala bead necklace is made in the traditional fashion with hand-tied knots between each bead for strength, peace, and beauty. This technique allows the mala to lay stylishly on the body when worn. It also makes meditation with the mala beads easier, as you move your finger over each individual bead with your mantra.
Mala Beads (also called Prayer Beads) are traditionally used for meditation but also make beautiful jewelry and a unique gift! We call this a "mini mala" because it is made with 6mm mala beads rather than the traditional 8mm bead size. This smaller size makes it easier to wear as a necklace as it lays about mid-chest.
