I have ordered a few Malas through this site and have always love, loved them. This Mala was absolutely beautiful and unique, but unfortunately was not made very well. The thin string that was used, the same string the tassel was made with, throughout the necklace is not strong at all. The Mala broke within days. I was able to fix it but a month later the string gave out in another spot. I have all the beads so I will just remake it myself with better materials but it is very disappointing.
