Wonderful workmanship in this mala: with bodhi-seed spacers for counting and 11 mm orange rudraksha, along with a lovely tassel and tiny Buddha attached to the Guru bead---all hand-knotted. This is actually the second of its kind I've ordered from Laura. My younger daughter loved the first seven years ago; she still wears it.

A finely fashioned and lovely pocket Mala. I really appreciated that the shop owner, Laura contacted me after I made this purchase to make sure that I realized that I purchased a smaller, shorter in length Mala. I had read her item description details which were very accurately provided, but I realize that many people do not, and go by only the visual photo provided. I was delighted with the Mala and how quickly it arrived! Very prompt shipping and very well packed. Thank you Laura!

Gracefully designed with a nice weight and balance. Doesn't feel too light or too heavy. The beads give a satisfying click when you pull one towards you while doing japa, due to the little metal spacers inside each bead. The elastic cord has just the right amount of flex and feels like it should last a long time. I'm very satisfied with this mala; I can tell that it was made with love.

Slightly smaller than expected but good quality beads.

Surpassed our expectations.
Beautiful stone beads inspire me to create these malas!
My first mala was made of bodhiseed. My friend and I restrung it together, back in the eighties. It served me for many years. Then I needed a crystal mala—they symbolize so many good things. A light purple amethyst mala with fluorite marker beads followed—made by me. Carnelian and serpentine malas arrived soon. I love stones and I love meditation—they all complement each other.
Thanks, Etsy, for the nice mention in this article!

USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT MALA CARE:
These malas are made to last a long time without needing restringing.
To help them last: don't wrap your mala tightly. This prevents stress on the cord, especially around the guru bead. Keep malas in a soft bag to avoid scratching or breaking soft stones.
Wrist mala care: Avoid overstretching them. Lotions, sprays, or perfumes can weaken stretch cord over time.
