Our FRINGE MALA is a hand-crafted deerskin tassel necklace accented with a Tibetan prayer bead, the Mala*.
* The yak bone beads are inlaid with brass, red coral and turquoise. They are handmade in Nepal by artisans using culturally traditional techniques. Turquoise is believed to be a detoxifying stone and wards against evil. The use of bone in mala beads, as well as jewelry, in Tibetan/Buddhist culture symbolizes impermanence.
