Multi-gemstone beaded necklace, 'Japa Mala Beauty' (Guatemala)

Circling the neck with a wonderful array of pale jade, earthen jasper, tiger's eye, and soft pink rose quartz, this long necklace from Guatemala is designed and crafted by Lorena Cofino. Inspired by the Hindu japa mala prayer necklaces, she beads this accessory with exactly 108 stones, often used to help count while reciting mantras.
