A circle of beads, forming a necklace or rosary (mala), is a common artifact in many cultures. It is used for decorative purposes as well as being used by religious groups, notably as prayer counters — possibly following a rhythm. They are also used in the form of "worry beads" in some cultures. The religious form, common in both East and West, is used as a mnemonic device to order a series of prayers or meditational mantras. Our wrist malas go perfectly together with our kurta tunics and other Indian clothing.
