Nepali jewelry and Buddhism

Very closely related to Buddhism, Nepali jewels are often assimilated to Tibetan jewels. It is true that many Tibetans in exile, have established themselves in the land of smiles. And Tibet rhymes with Buddhism! Malas and Zen bracelets, also known as lucky bracelets or Tibetan bracelets, are very common. Most Nepali people wear a mala necklace or a mala bracelet.

Nepali jewels in silver, brass and semi-precious stones: these Nepali jewels are mainly made by the Newar, an ethnic group living in Kathmandu and its surroundings. The Newar have been recognized artisans for centuries and their history is closely linked to Tibet. They have been the jewelry artisans for Tibetan monasteries, many generations.

Manufacture of Nepali jewels Omyoki

Our Nepali jewelry is made by Mahesh. This craftsman lives on the outskirts of Kathmandu, in the family home, with his parents, his wife and his 2 children. He has been making malas and beaded bracelets since 14 years ago! 14 years to put pearls, with patience, softness and tranquility. Mahesh is very religious, when he puts on beads he seems in active meditation. This person emerges from an absolute calm, a peaceful force. Well known in his neighborhood, it is not uncommon to see at his shop one or two friends from the surrounding area to discuss and drink tea.
