‘Antiqued’ bone wrist mala

Antiqued bone beads are strung on strong elastic thread, available in two sizes.  The antique effect is made by staining natural bone beads with tea.

The beads are approximately 8mm in size but these beads are not perfectly round, there are natural variations in the shaping of the beads and therefore slight variations in sizing.

This mala is handmade in the UK by Buddhist Goodies.  The beads have been sourced within the UK from a supplier who purchases from India and who assures us that “Nothing endangered is required or allowed and nothing is reared with the sole intention of use as a bone product.”

Wrist mala sizing

If your wrist measures between 14 and 17 cm (5.5 to 6.75 inches) select the small mala.   If your wrist measures between 17.5 and 21 cm (7.0 to 8.25 inches) we think our regular sized wrist mala will suit you. Elasticated wrist bracelets will stretch over time.

Handy tip:  If you don’t have a tape measure then you can use a piece of string or knitting wool to wrap around your wrist to the correct size and then measure it against a ruler!
