Project by: Janice Parsons
Sample by: Karen Marshall

Using a combination of stones that blend to create a calm aura, Karen has made a personal mala that speaks to what brings her serenity. 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, Karen departed from the classic all-one-bead design by using a variety of stones. 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. The handout is easy to view. Click the PDF Download button.
