These beautiful beads are made from Rudraksha seeds that hail from India and are traditionally used as prayer beads in Hinduism. They are the seeds of the Rudraksha tree, and legend has it that when Lord Shiva awoke from a long meditation, he shed a tear. From this tear grew the Rudraksha tree.

You could wear this powerful strand as a spiritual reminder throughout your day or keep safe to use solely in meditation/prayer.
The beads have a knot in between each of them, which makes it easy to count beads while reciting mantras in meditation. For that reason, we do not recommend cutting these particular strands apart for jewelry making. You could easily swap out the tassel, if yellow/gold isn't your jam.
