The silver beads are Om mani padme hum Beads, which have many different meanings, but they are mantra beads, or prayer beads. It is up to the user to decide what mantra you wish to use when you are meditating with these beads. Some practitioners believe that the "mani" means jewel or lotus, so I paired these beautiful beads with these sterling silver painted lotus beads. These beads are pure sterling silver, as such they are very soft. The utmost care must be taken with this bracelet.
