I bought two skull mala bracelets before this, and I like this one best. The skulls don't have that much detail (they're not overly ornate); some of their mouths are missing, which I like, and each one is unique. They all face the same direction, and are held together with a clear elastic band. The bracelet fits comfortably. In addition to the wood Buddha center bead, there are 21 skull beads. There's also another one "crowning" the Buddha bead for a total of 22 skulls. It's definitely worth the money.

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars!

It would have been nice if there was a size specified on the wrist mala. It is very tiny. It actually looked like a child's when I pulled it from the package.

I do not have very big wrists, but this is at least two or three beads shy; this causes it to have a big gap and be very tight around the wrists to the point of being uncomfortable.

Maybe it would be better if they put in 27 beads instead of 21.

Quality is nice.

All-in-all disappointing with it.

Wrist mala has a buddha bead that lies right on your acupuncture pressure point on the wrist. Skulls on this one all face the same direction. My basset hounds keep sniffing at it...

Very snazzy. Has a distinct burnt bone odor- kind of like a joint of roast beef. Not for the anal perfectionist though- skulls do not all face the same way. I give it five stars nonetheless- still looking for the mala with just the skull as the buddha bead.
