Malas are a wonderful way to bring your love of crystals and meditation together. And if you can use them as jewelry, even better!
This is a hand-made (by me) 108-bead 6mm mala, made with matte denim lapis beads and a rectangular opaline guru bead. It's hand-knotted with nylon cord, with a hand-made silk tassel. Approximately 30".
The beads are slightly smaller than most of the malas you see (which are 8mm) so it makes it small enough that it also works well as a necklace.
