This mala is a one of a kind design. It was created as a commission piece for my friends then gifted to one of her spiritual guides. It was made with the individual in mind to fit her personality & style. The unique Guru bead concept created from 3 Black Quarts Nuggets with protective coating & bound with natural bamboo linen.

This mala jewelery was created under my bead project; Zendless Knot Studios. Please check out my Etsy Store for more info.

Strung with natural linen waxed cord (dark green) – Reenforced with wildfire thermally bonded thread for long lasting.

Design Concept:
This mala has a mossy & earthy feel, bringing to mind versatile & vibrant woodlands. The black onyx grounds the mala with boldness & stability. The unique guru bead give a feeling of auspiciousness while the tones of the tassel balance it with down to earth simplicity.

It was created with the traditional 108 beads which in Buddhism represent all our forms of personal suffering, the equal counterparts of our joys & liberation from suffering.
