《《 PAUA MALA KIT 》》

You’ll have everything you need to craft your own high quality hand-knotted mala with this kit.

This kit comes with your choice of knotting cord, bright teal as shown (more advanced knotting option, see below for explanation) or with black, light blue or green. We include 100% cotton DMC brand tassel thread in teal for all kits, but you are welcome to request a different tassel color if you prefer.

The mala beads are made from ebony wood, which is naturally black. The guru beads are priced based on the design of the shell inlay. Each has at least one side that displays beautiful color & patterns.

Each abalone shell teardrop guru bead is unique, you will receive one of your choice. Photos show both side of the bead so you have a clear picture of what each look like. They are approximately 32mm tall, 24mm wide and 6mm thick. The abalone shell is set inside black resin and has a piece of shell on each side. If you have any questions about these beads or want more photos, please send a message and we are happy to help.

🌏Sourcing: This abalone shell is from New Zealand where the paua abalone are ethically harvested by hand by expert divers, with very strict standards about how many can be collected each day, making this a sustainable source for this most beautiful shell.

Custom requests to modify this kit are welcome!

This kit will includes:

1. 108 6mm ebony wood mala beads.

2. 24x32x6mm teardrop shaped abalone shell bead set in black resin.

3. Knotting cord with needle for easy stringing, in 4 color options*

4. DMC brand 100% cotton tassel thread in matching teal color.

5. Thread to tie the tassel closed (light teal or multi color depending on choice)

6. Instructions on how to make a knotted mala and handmade tassel. In addition, I’ll be available to answer any questions about crafting your mala!

7. A silver organza bag to store your mala when not using it wearing.

*MALA CORD KNOTTING OPTIONS
This mala is shown in photos with a different type of cord than we sell in the shop. It is a double strand of nylon cord that we cut to size for your kit and string a needle through. This cord is slightly more challenging to knot with as it will have 2 loose strands, as apposed to the double strand that is twisted onto itself that Griffin makes. Unfortunately, Griffin does not make a teal color cord, so we sourced a new option for this mala kit.

Alternatively, choose our easy to knot Griffin brand cord in green, light blue or black.

    Great mala kit with instructions that were easy for me to follow. I am glad that I watched some mala making videos though, because it can be a little tricky to figure out at first. Their kit is very complete though. The abalone guru bead is so beautiful. I am very happy!
