Wood has always been considered to give a rich and opulent feel to anything carved (including jewelry) – and there’s something very satisfying about holding a string of wooden beads.
Several varieties of sustainable and cultivated wood are used to make this jewelry, such as Bamboo and Palmwood, South Korean Boxwood, and Taiwanese Cheesewood. These may be dyed and sometimes varnished to resemble the more expensive woods – but they can look good just as they are.
Every type of wood has an earthy energy and healing power. Wood brings us closer to the earth, and represents growth and renewal.
Malas are a traditional tool that have been used in Buddhism and Hinduism for centuries. Malas are used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, the number of breaths taken during meditation or to count other recitations.
Buddhist malas are often made of different types of wood, such as sandalwood and rosewood, and Hindu malas are usually made with rudraksha, which is considered a very holy and protective seed. The material may vary with the use of the mantra.
