Kapala necklaces or bracelets are skulls that traditionally represented death in Tibet. Buddhists incorporated Tibetan skull beads into malas to represent the impermanence of life and the limits of human knowledge. Skull-shaped mala beads help chanters reflect upon the inevitability of death and the necessity of embracing lives filled with compassion. Traditional Tibetan skull beads are carved from yak bone to honor the beasts of burden that serve mankind and to inspire devotees to likewise serve their fellow.

When it comes to the sacred Yak bone jewelry used in their Buddhist traditions, the rules are strict: the animals must die of natural means. This is because the negative karma that is created from slaughtering the animal outweighs the positive effects of spiritual engravings of mantras such as Om Mani Padme Hum. When something serves a spiritual purpose, it is believed that it should be as pure as possible. Practicing Buddhists also view Yak jewelry as a reminder of the impermanence of life; it’s a way to help them dive deeper into their spiritual quest…a familiar theme throughout much of Buddhism.
