This has thirty five beads plus one extra large amber to serve as a "guru bead". The assymetry of the two beads in front is partly so you can feel the difference between them without looking.
Malas are so intriguing in their math, aren't they? People like to stay within the tradition of 108 or 111 beads, with variations of 54, 22, and 27. You can read explanations online. I'm not a completely traditional mala maker, though, because I believe that it isn't the number of beads as much as the intention with which they're used that is important.
Still, I respect tradition enormously. I'm happy to make custom malas in whatever configuration of beads someone needs.
I saw one mala online that has a thousand beads. That's wonderful!
