The Men’s Beaded Bracelet
(Post 38) The popularity of men’s beaded bracelets have hit an all time high. Today’s styles draw heavily from Hinduism & Buddhism due to the heavy use of the Mala in its construction. A mala is simply a string of beads that are used in a meditation practice and can be made of many materials like gemstones, rudraksha seeds and sandalwood. Mala beads have been used by yogis and spiritual seekers for thousands of years and were first created 3000 years ago in India. The term ‘mala’ is Sanskrit for “meditation garland,” perfect for the creation of the Hipster beaded bracelet we see today. #mensbeadedbracelets #mensjewelry #malabracelets #hipsterstyle #tcp #thecuriopop
