Custom Maala Construction Per Inch
We can make your maala for you.
The cost is $1 per inch for construction without knots between the beads and $2 per inch with knots between beads.
A maala is a necklace for prayers and chanting, typically with 108 main beads and one guru bead and sometimes a tassel.
We can order the stones/pearls/gems for you, or you can order them yourself, and send them to us to make the maala. If you wish, you can have a consult with Renay to determine your ideal type of maala (or simply send your chosen stones to us).
Once it is made, Renay will contact you to tell you how many inches it is, and you can use this page to pay for that many inches.
In the example shown in the picture, pearl for the Moon was determined to be the best ratna (gem) for the client, and jade was chosen by the client as a guru bead. With 8 mm of diameter for the pearls, the length was around 33 inches, and so the client paid $33 for the construction of the maala.
The client opted to not have a tassle in this case, but we can certainly add one.
