Today the energetic combination of loving rose quartz and grounding/protective smoky quartz struck me. Because when we're in love, shouldn't we stay a bit grounded? #wiselovemala
These are the new bronze lotus and Tibetan Hung syllable charms that I hand carved in wax and had cast in bronze and silver. They're my own designs and I'm happy they're here!
This is me cutting the wax for the Baby Lotus (Opening Lotus) charm. Then I carved it and smoothed it. Then my caster cast it for me in a small batch. The Baby Lotus symbolizes us opening a little at a time to joy and wisdom.

About

A quest for creativity in mala making...

I love to make malas - Buddhist and Hindu prayer beads. I'm detail-oriented, with a love for color and texture. I use the highest quality of beads that I can find, while still taking the cost to the customer into account.
Mala making is an art form and a meditative practice for me.
Nothing feels quite as special to make as devotional objects. There's something about the intention behind making sacred art, craft, and jewelry that resonates with me. I put compassion into all my work.

Customer service is a big part of why I'm here. And of course, everything is strung with love and prayer. I do appreciate your support.

    I love to make malas and other prayer beads. Combining colorful stones, woods, and metals in ways that inspire the spirit is very satisfying!

    This small caster works closely with me to carefully produce the cast metal charms and jewelry that I design. I carve the waxes, he makes molds, casts the items, polishes, and antiques. It's a very collaborative process. Charms coming soon!

Additional policies and FAQs
FIT
Sizes are given in the mala listings - the measurement is in length, from top bead to the bottom of the tassel, not total circumference.
If your wrist mala doesn't fit well, simply return it for free resizing. All you'll pay is the postage each way.

MALA CARE
These malas are made to last.
Try not to wrap your mala tightly. Avoid putting stress on the cord, especially around the guru bead. Keep malas in a soft bag when they're in a purse or backpack to avoid scratching or breaking soft stones.
Wrist mala care: Avoid overstretching them. Lotions, sprays, or perfumes can weaken stretch cord over time.

May you be happy, may you be well.
