This mala bead necklace is an interesting and exotic variation of a traditional Tibetan bone mala. Striking black hand-inlaid yak bone beads are paired with golden brown tea stained wood and elegant natural mother of pearl. The main marker bead is a handmade tribal Naga shell bead that is inscribed with the "Om" symbol and then paired with smooth natural tigerseye. The centerpiece of the whole mala is the highly detailed vintage style Nepalese brass and tigerseye guru and tower beads. The guru and tower beads are then creatively finished off with another vintage style Nepalese brass bead and royal blue tassel.

For the lifetime of any mala we create entirely from exotic wood, we will repair it at no cost to you if the beads become damaged under normal usage. This covers only the exotic wood beads made by Lhasa Artisan Brand should they ever break, crack or chip under normal circumstances. This does not cover moisture damage, color change of the wood, or damage to the tassel, stringing material or any accent beads not created by Lhasa Artisan Brand. Please save your purchase invoice to assist us in fulfilling our promise to you.
The use of bone is widely thought of as a symbol of impermanence when used in cultural jewelry and mala beads. NO animals harmed specifically to make these products. Additionally, it is our stance to include and welcome ALL practices, lineages and cultural traditions so as to create an environment of inclusivity and not favor one over the other. We feel our product selection reflects this important value. All are welcome and respected here
Bone and wood mala beads and jewelry. We do not recommend getting them wet. They are very porous materials by nature, and like most porous materials they do not do well with moisture. For inlaid bone mala beads, we recommend removing them before engaging in activity that induces sweating. To maintain the finish on the exotic wood beads, simply apply a normal wood polish as needed just as you would with any fine piece made from wood.
As with most plant or wood products, there is a possibility of an allergic or adverse reaction to the wood or finish we use. We use a finish that is approved for use on toys (EN71 Part 3 Approved). We have yet to personally encounter an allergic or adverse reaction to either the finish or woods we use.
