Eight-Eyed Dzi Necklace: Tibetan Boutique, Religious Treasure

Bracelets are also known as rosary beads and Buddhist beads. In Buddhism, holding rosary beads is believed to eliminate karma and symbolize a beautiful vision. Nowadays, many people regard bracelets as fashionable accessories, and some people believe that bracelets have a certain collection value and can maintain and appreciate in value. Bracelet for different people, different materials, how to match better, or higher grade, of course, is also a science. Generally speaking, the collocation of a string of beads mainly considers three aspects: hardness, structure and color.

Similar hardness, spacer

Follow the principle: the hardness is similar, the spacer is interspersed

When we choose beads for bracelets, we should pay attention to distinguish the hardness. If the hardness is very different, the higher hardness cannot have obvious edges and corners, so it is not easy to wear the lower hardness; if the hardness of the matching bead and the main bead is too large, you can choose to replace it with a matching bead with a similar hardness. Or use coconut shells as separators, which can also be protected.

The hardness of Nanhong is relatively high, coupled with the unparalleled bright red color, it is an excellent choice for matching beads. Many people prefer Nanhong beads with bracelets, and Baoshan ingredients usually make people feel higher-grade, especially the pumpkin beads of Baoshan ingredients, which are simple and elegant. Star and Moon Bodhi, Vajra Bodhi, Bodhi Root and other Bodhi-like bead bracelets, with the foil of the southern red, not only do not steal the limelight of the main bead, but also serve as an appropriate foil, and are also very suitable for playing.

If you like blue beads, lapis lazuli is of course the best choice. The hardness of lapis lazuli is enough, it is not easy to wear, and it is the easiest to highlight the personality in the bracelet matching. Some light-colored bracelets, such as bodhi root and clam, are very eye-catching after being set off by lapis lazuli and beads. Some people prefer this eye-catching style. Usually, when lapis lazuli is used as a matching bead, it will also be matched with turquoise, southern red, etc. to complement each other.

At present, malachite is gradually being processed into various beads for sale. Malachite itself resembles the green spots on peacock feathers, which is very attractive, and the texture of malachite is also unique. After making ornaments and pendants, it is now also popular as a matching bead. Because it is greener than turquoise and has ever-changing textures. However, the hardness of malachite is relatively low, so it is a better choice to match the wooden bracelets that are not too hard. If you have to match the bracelets with higher hardness, you can use 925 silver, coconut shells, etc. as spacers to separate them.

Unify the form and bring forth the new

Follow the principle: unify the form and bring forth the new

For a string of beads to match well, the choice is very important, and the balance is also very important. It is not just to pile up expensive matching beads and it will look good, that is to say, there must be integrity, and the upper half of the beads and the lower half of the beads cannot be two styles, and there must be echoes in the structure and shape. The so-called consistent shape is: drum beads with drum beads, round beads with round beads, drum beads with round beads not only can not achieve the effect of decoration, but feel very abrupt and alternative, and the gaps between beads are also different in size, which affects beauty.

The so-called size gradient means that the size of the bodhi seeds and accessories should be gradually changed, and the small ones between adjacent accessories should be gradually changed, and the gradient should gradually become larger or smaller. And the basis of the composition, the use of the thuja bracelet on the beads refers to the size of the beads on the left and right sides of the beads, the material is the same, and the two beads with the same position and function should preferably be the same size and shape. Of course, the specifications of the bracelet are not the same. It has many different matching styles. Different styles are distinguished by the difference of the spacer beads. The following is the most example of the 108-bead beads. Let’s talk about the matching of beads bracelets.

If you wear it purely as a bracelet, the Buddha head (the large bead at the node of a Buddha bead, usually the bead of the tee) is different from the spacer bead (among the 108 beads, every 27 beads are inserted into a different one. The material of the large beads, called "beads" or "separating beads", and "separating beads", the color is in sharp contrast with the sub-beads) are not made according to the requirements of the beads, and the form can be said to be completely customized. One thing that hasn't changed is that the spacer beads are made of beads of different colors. According to the style, there are mainly four kinds of spacer beads: no spacer beads, one kind of spacer beads, two kinds of spacer beads, and multiple kinds of spacer beads (three or more).

Strictly speaking, a string of Buddha beads must have three-way Buddha heads. If there is no Buddha head, it cannot be called a Buddha bead, but if it is only worn as a bracelet, the Buddha head is optional; In the bracelet, the main beads must be of the same shape, and the shape of the spacer beads can just be changed, such as round beads, barrel beads, melon beads, etc. As mentioned above, one of the functions of the spacer is to make the bracelet not uniform, and the change of shape is conducive to the bracelet being more flexible and not looking rigid.

Harmonious tones, clever contrast

Principles to follow: Harmonious tones, clever contrasting colors

The colors of the beads are generally two contrasting colors, two colors with a large difference in brightness, or colors that are close to the contrasting colors. They complement each other and have a strong impact. Most wooden friends like to match the bracelets with Buddhist beads as Tibetan rosary or chao beads, so there are only three primary colors: red, yellow and green, and the secondary colors are white, purple, silver, etc. First of all, you must choose three. A basic color tone, and then add secondary colors according to your own preferences. .

In Tibetan Buddhism and traditional Chinese culture, everyone actually has a common aesthetic appreciation for red and purple, so contrasting colors is the most dazzling method, cool colors with warm colors, monochrome with multiple colors, such as green and red are perfect Matching, but coral and southern red are very abrupt, and green beads such as turquoise are not necessarily good-looking with silver ornaments. It is also a very good idea to show the charm of different materials in the main color.

The impactful colors give people a refreshing feeling, and can also bring out their own extraordinary temperament. This kind of collocation usually has a main color, such as a single white, a single red, which needs to be matched with another color to break the monotony. Usually the color does not need to be too contrasting, such as egg yolk as the main color, with white, or pink as the main color, with red and so on. Those who like elegant and fresh style can try this combination.

In the simple and elegant, it is necessary to show a sense of tranquility without being rigid and tacky, so the finishing touch on the color can achieve the effect. This kind of collocation usually chooses different materials belonging to the same color system for collocation. Depending on the color, the overall look is either peaceful, deep, or clean. Such as olive pit color with beeswax, camel bone with linden root, turquoise with lapis lazuli and so on. People who prefer a certain shade can make this combination.

For those who like Buddha And Mara Kingkong Bodhi Seed Bracelet, it is more suitable to use the mix and match flow. However, you need to consider the colors you choose. Some colors may not work well together. If you interspersed with other colors, the effect will be different. This collocation needs to locate a main color, and then choose another color to contrast. For example, King Kong Bodhi with lapis lazuli tee, or olive pit with ivory fruit tee, Tridacna with Nanhong tee, and so on. When there is a main bead, we can choose the foil flow. Since the main bead is usually made of better material, the color will also be gratifying. Of course, the effect can be better reflected by the foil of the auxiliary color.

What needs to be reminded is that no matter how you choose, the color matching should be harmonious. For example, the stars and moon are generally white, light yellow, and light brown after the pan is old, so the transition colors should basically choose the above colors. Transitional colors are generally used for Buddha heads, both sides of the top beads, and pendants. The embellishment color is the pendant under the Buddha's head, which can be adjusted flexibly. Xingyue has some colors that are not suitable for matching, and it will be very impetuous to match these colors. For example, if the color is too deep in southern red, or directly add lapis lazuli as a spacer without transition, and add black coconut shells on both sides of each matching bead, it will look very jumpy. If it must be added, it is recommended to add some transitional spacers on both sides of the spacer beads of these colors.
