Ancient History


Project by: Janice Parsons
Sample by: Janice Parsons

Made of 108 beads in Turitella Agate, this very simple mala is embellished with an Ashanti pendant and antique brass bead. Traditionally, a mala is used in Buddhism for meditation and chanting. With 108 beads plus a guru bead, they are both functional and beautiful. In this sample, Janice kept with the classic all-one-bead design and made it artisan by adding the rustic pendant. In this project, you will learn to knot using the classic pearl knotting method. Janice also covers how to knot the closure seamlessly, what cord size to use and how to add a tassel.
