Beautiful and Simple Product
on August 16, 2013
I was interested in this product in particular because it looked like a very different form of bodhi seed- and that it is. The seeds have intricate and delicate patterning. Each is unique and the bracelet has a very distinctive look.
The elastic is sturdy and even after months of daily use it remains very tight and springy. In fact the mala overall seems very sturdy and shows no immediate signs of wear.
My only problem with it is that the beads are rather large. It is perhaps because this is only my second ever wrist mala, but the beads are significantly larger than my previous one- to the point where I have to take it off if I'm writing. Also I am 6' and 180 lbs and the mala is still a little loose on my wrist so keep that in mind.
Also the mala only has 15 beads, so keep that in mind if you plan on using it for mantras (I usually just default to my 108 bead).
Overall a very sturdy and eye-catching product- if not just a little to big.
