About CRWNmalas

A moment, a mala, a muse.

CRWNmalas is a one woman enterprise run by Delphi from her home in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  A proud mom of one boy whom she loves to refer to as a "force of nature", she runs every aspect of the business from supply, design, advertising, social media, shipping, etc.  Though she spent years mulling over the idea to undertake a creative enterprise, CRWNmalas erupted with full force over the course of just a few days in 2020 after the realization that one simple piece of jewelry in her collection, an inlaid wooden mala from Nepal, still held the same power of awe over her since the first time she saw it 2015.  One could say it was love at first sight and its impact is what carried her imagination like a herd of thundering horses into the service of CRWNmalas.

The name CRWN was chosen to honor both her own Western religious heritage and the Eastern philosophies and spiritual heritages from which malas hail.  The Crown Chakra, the 7th chakra at the top of the head, is considered to be the "energy center that controls your connection to spirit, to Supreme Being, as well as your sense of universal consciousness, wisdom, unity, and self-knowledge".  That connection to the Divine has sustained her, inspired her, and blessed her and so she put it front and center.

"A lifelong explorer of hidden places and inner landscapes, I've always been drawn to the mysterious iridescence of life, that glowing spark that infuses being with meaning. My journey led me to a moment, a mala, and a muse. These creations are a manifestation of the chase which ensued. May I never catch her." ~Delphi

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I make malas in the Tibetan Style of 27x4, with some creative flourishes. A full mala has 108 counting beads, plus accents and marker beads. A midi mala has 81 beads and are great for those wanting a mala with less bulk and length.

I can make other styles and bead counts 81, 54, or 27) per request.

Bracelets can be resized by request. Customs are available.

What are Malas?

Malas are traditionally used to move one's focus from counting prayers/mantras to the sound and/or meaning of the mantra/prayer (similar to a Western rosary). Traditionally they consist of 108 primary beads plus a Guru bead, but a tassel, accent beads, and charms are common. Some feature hand-tied knots between beads to aid in use and to protect the beads.

Who can use a Mala?

Although they are a utilitarian and symbolic part of spiritual and mindfulness practices, they have come to be treasured for their broad, unique, and beautiful aesthetic. Malas gain spiritual status through the intention of the wearer regardless of material or provenance. Therefore, they can be enjoyed as a fashion accessory, worn as a sacred piece imbued with healing energy, or they can settle comfortably between the two extremes based on the needs and intentions of the wearer.

Care instructions

Mala Care
If needed, wipe gently with a damp cloth. If desired, malas can be spiritually cleansed the same way crystals, gemstones, and spaces are cleansed – using moonlight or burning sage, incense, or candles. Avoid submerging in water of any kind. Tassel can be cleaned and groomed with gentle soap and a comb, then blot excess water with a cloth and leave to dry overnight.

Variations in Natural Materials

Malas are made of natural materials which have variations in shape and color. They are displayed through photos on screens which also have variations. I try my best to accurately describe and capture the qualities of each item, but please understand and allow for variations in shape, texture, color.
