Pyrite .... Hindu Mala Prayer Beads... Jade...Chinese Turquoise...Rose Quartz...Pink Aventurine... I love them all. Onyx, Tiger Eye, and Lapis are the next in line...
These special one of a kind Malas are beautiful inside & out, which you may have read in my past mala posting from June this year... These malas are inspired by the traditional Hindu mala, which have exactly 108 beads plus Shel.'s new addition, the solid gold bird detail. This bird keeps popping up in all of my pieces lately, thanks to my Mimi who I inherited the original bird from, well, let's be honest, it was my mimi's, then my mama's, then mine... Lucky me...
