This is a string of Mala beads! It's 108 amethyst 8mm beads, each hand knotted on silk with a rose quartz guru bead and chevron amethyst point. And let me tell you, I was playing chicken with the thread. I had a literal half-inch left when I finished, and had to tie it off with needle nose pliers. I was seething as I finished, 110% certain that I'd have to cut every.single.knot and start over, but I made it to the finish line!





Look at all this thread I had left over!

It turned out perfectly and maybe it's a good thing you had to work for it a bit extra hard because now it will always be extra special.
