Making a Handmade 10MM Sandalwood Wrist Mala Bracelet

Step 1: Gather Your Beads and Supplies

Get all accessories – a soft metal line, sandalwood beads, guru beads and tower, and stretchable string. Usually, for kids, choose 6mm, 8mm or 10mm beads. For women, choose 10mm, 11mm and 12mm. For Men, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm or bigger size. There is no standard, you can choose what you like.




Step 2: String the Guru Bead.

The Guru bead usually has three holes. So the most difficult step is to get through the guru bead. First string the guru bead tower, and the second, please make the soft metal line a small hook. Then it can easily get through the hole at one side.


Step 3: String the Beads

After stringing the guru bead to one side, you can easily go on stringing the standard beads. You can string beads according to your wrist size.







Step 4: Close the Loop

After stringing all of the mala beads, you need to string the other side to the guru bead and tower. Please follow the pictures:
