A mala is a string of beads traditionally used in japa meditation to count recitations of a mantra.
These necklaces consist of 108 beads and support mindfulness and focus as you recite
mantras, prayers, or affirmations. Malas can be used in meditation, worn throughout the day
to help you manifest the energy of the gemstones, or serve as a gentle reminder
of your intention during your daily life.
CUSTOM MADE MALAS
Inspired by tradition and guided by intention, these gemstone malas
are personalized to you and your intention. Do you want to be a part of the process?
You decide how much or how little input you want to have. I'll help guide you through the process
with questions and prompts for setting an intention, selecting gemstones based on their healing properties and energetics, and choosing bead size. All malas are hand knotted with nylon string. Your intention is held during the making of the mala and is sealed with the tying of each knot. Finished malas are cleansed in salt water or sage depending on the particular gemstones used and then are charged in the sunlight before packaging.
They will arrive in a bag for storage with instructions for use and descriptions of each of the
gemstones used. Pricing varies depending on gemstones used and bead sizes.
