Multicolored Vintage Enamel Mala Bead Necklace 23"
The multicolored colored vintage bead mala necklace can be used as a multi-wrap bracelet is made up of 108 6mm vintage enamel stone prayer beads.
In doing my research, I learned that these are considered prayer beads. The number of beads vary from one religion to the next. Since there are 108 prayer beads, they are considered Mala buddhist prayer beads. The beads allow the person to count the number of prayers that have been said with less effort on the counting, thereby staying present and more effort given to the actual prayers themselves. This bracelet does not have knots in between each bead as some prayer beads do.
Personally, I love jewelry that dangles and I love simplicity and most of all I love a good background story. I have tried through the years to learn how to meditate. Honestly I have tried and someone recommended using these beads to help clear my mind. I'm working on it... but aren't we all works in progress?
The necklace measures 52cm or roughly 23".
