A 54ct bead Mala is obviously smaller than the 108ct but it is easier to carry in your pocket or bag. It also has the option of featuring 5 marker beads that divides the Mala into 6 sections of 9 beads each.
There are several possible Main Component Categories to choose items in to build your Custom 54 Bead Mala. There is a brief description of each component below the heading. Several are required and a few are optional.
Keep in mind the color scheme you are envisioning throughout the design process. Choose colors, tones, and themes that work well together. But, this is your Mala so experiment and do whatever you want! Be sure to see info on most of the bead types in the right column.
Click on the image for your selection in each category – note that there may be multiple pages of images per section. You can clear your selection at the bottom of each category. You can also zoom in on your selection at the bottom of each section for a larger image. (remember – you *must* make a choice in the current component section before you can go on to the next; but you can always go back and change a previous selection)
