Announcement   What is a mala? Buddhist or Hindu mala prayer beads are used to focus during meditation or worn as beautiful reminders of your best intentions. They can be used to count mantras or simply to help you be more aware of breath.
These 108, 111, and 21 bead malas are made from beautiful semi-precious stones & special woods. They are created with love and the ideas of crystal healing.
The malas are strung on the strongest and most flexible beading cord available and finished with handmade tassels. Wrist malas are strung on strong, clear stretch cord and last for a very long time.
Each mala comes gift-boxed with its own letter about the minerals and their symbolism.
Handmade on Etsy since 2008!

Guru/focal bead collection! People ask for mala customizations. I have these artsy beads that can replace the guru beads on any full length mala I make. They'd look great with rudraksha seeds. Convo if you'd like to add one.
Just listed this new denim lapis wrist mala in the shop. Denim lapis is regular lapis but has extra bits of white calcite! Very beneficial for divine connection and meditation. Which is really helpful in times of stress.
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

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 jewelry. Combining colorful stones, woods, and metals in ways that inspire the spirit is very satisfying! I've been actively selling online since 2008 and have met the most interesting people.

Production partners

  • Caster

    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.
