Description

One of our original designs that has maintained popularity since 1999!  This handmade wrist mala features hand carved yak bone beads that are inlaid with pieces of turquoise, coral and brass tones.  Each bead is unique!

A note about bone beads:  Tibetan nomadic life is hard, and in the cold there is little to eat.  Water buffalo and yak are main staples in Nepal and Tibet, and when an animal is used for food nothing is wasted.  These amazing bone beads are hand inlaid by artisans who recycle and reuse everything in daily life and spiritual practice.

Adjustable.  Measures approximately 6 inches around when fully tightened, and opens to about 10 inches.  Beads are 8mm.  Handmade in Nepal.
