About

The decision that changed my life!

Caught in a professional lifestyle that was killing me, I gradually started making malas for friends of mine (as a steam releasing hobby). At that time, I was working full time, had 2 little toddlers in daycare, a house to care for, and a husband that traveled half of the time... I was really overwhelmed by all the daily ' to do ' lists.

A blessing came my way when the daycare closed suddenly. That was the trigger I needed to stop my day job, stay at home with the kids and transform my mala making hobby into a not-so-full-time job. I provided malas for a master I know, and soon after, I opened my Etsy shop.

Now the kids have grown up and are both in elementary school. This gives me plenty of time for making malas. Now operating full time, my mission is to provide gemstone malas made to last.

I was really annoyed by mala breaking... over the years, with experience, I've chosen the best supplies and developed techniques allowing the mala to last for years. I can now craft gemstone malas with bigger beads, confident enough in my work to warranty knotted malas one year against breakage!

Take a look at my shop and don't hesitate to ask for something special. I really like to let go my creativity at your service! Some great things comes out cooperation and I will happily cooperate with you to craft the mala of your dreams. Oh, by the way, I speak french as first language, so if something I wrote sounds funny to you, do not hesitate to let me know :-)

Sizing details

You will often see my fingers holding a bead of the mala so you can gauge the size of the beads accordingly. A chart is also available for tassel colors.
