I bought some nice waxed linen thread from whitecloverkiln on Etsy. I made a 27 bead mala using jasper beads and I included a beautiful round garnet as the guru bead. The thread worked great with this beautiful jasper mix of rondell beads that I purchased in Santa Fe, NM.

Jasper is one of my favorite gemstones because it comes in a wide variety of colors and a wonderful display of patterns...no two are the same. This was my first try at knot tying and I am pleased with the outcome. I will use this in my daily meditation.
