This extraordinary 70cm Mala necklace has been handcrafted with Map Jasper paired with Onyx and 14K Gold, using the traditional number of 108 beads that Tibetan Malas include. Each bead in this necklace has been skilfully hand-knotted in place in typical Tibetan fashion, which not only assists the wearer to count each bead in their own form of mindfulness practice (read below), but also enhances the durability of the piece by strengthening the necklace as a whole.
One of the unique features of this piece is the ethically-sourced conch shell & brass Tibetan bead, handmade by Tibetan refugees in the mountains of Nepal. This conch shell bead finishes the piece with a beautiful Turkish silk tassel.
This necklace includes 2 clasps that allow the piece to be used in a variety of fabulous ways by the wearer, whether that mean as a smaller necklace and wrap bracelet combination, two smaller necklaces stacked together, or two wrap bracelets stacked, the choice is in your hands.
