In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, skull bead malas are thought to afford protection to the wearer. As reminders of impermanence, they are also used to cultivate wisdom. Handcarved from cow bone fragments. 14 beads, 3/8" diameter.
A subtle yet powerful message emanates from this bone Mala. Light weight and easy to wear. My only criticism is the elastic band. I would prefer a clasp as plastic doesn't seem right for a Mala bracelet.
one of my skulls bites i really think it's just a reminder
