Getting an energy bath in a vortex on Bell Rock in Sedona AZ!!! I think we both felt pretty amazing after that hike!
Of all the designs I make, this is still my favorite go-to Mala for every day! The labradorite shines amazing shades of iridescent blues and greens. It just lifts me up!
Diffuse your favorite oils with this new Mala! You can put oils on the lava beads or on paper in the locket!

About

Seed of Intention - Mala Beads and Bohemian Jewelry handmade with Intention

From the time that I was a little girl I knew that I was an entrepreneur at heart. In elementary school I fashioned jewelry from my mom's kitchen supplies (aluminum foil was my medium!) but I quickly learned that the foil made a very poor choice considering how easily it fell apart...this was the beginning of my adventures. As a child I was also a rock hound and begged my mother to go gold panning when we moved to Colorado...so it only seems natural that I have now combined my love for creating jewelry and natural gemstones.

Seed of Intention was born from my desire to create....to create my own path, my own life's work, and to bring joy to others. It is always such an honor for me when I send a handmade mala out into the world for its future owner across the states (maybe the globe!). To think that someone will be wearing and enjoying my art is the greatest compliment.

In my free time I enjoy yoga, clean eating, nature, alternative medicine, and ROCKS!
I first learned of mala beads through my yoga practice and was quickly inspired to make my own. I wanted a design that was unique and made with the best quality natural gemstone beads I could find.

What is a mala? A Mala is a strand of 108 beads and 1 Guru Bead (also referred to as "Mountain bead" or other names). A Mala is used in meditation to help focus the mind and keep count of the mantras. Malas can be made of any material, and there is a range of quality from plastic beads on nylon, to gold and semi-precious stones such as rubies and sapphires. I have chosen to create Malas with materials as pure and pristine as our greatest intentions.

Each Mala I create is as unique as its future owner. I especially love when I have the opportunity to create custom malas for clients based on their intentions...what they want to bring into their world. My Malas are crafted with only the best materials...I use the best quality gemstones that I can source, and I purchase from fellow Etsy shops, or local bead shops in Colorado. I NEVER use dyed, faux, or synthetic beads...and yes, I do believe in the energy of nature, and gemstone malas and jewelry are a great way to harness it! I am inspired by the power of intention...our individual strengths...the power of nature...and the spirit of small business!

Seed Of Intention now supports a local organization, Mile High Workshop, based in Denver, CO. Mile High Workshop is a non-profit organization which employs individuals who could not otherwise find work due to challenges such as homelessness. Seed Of Intention teaches jewelry making skills, and Intentional Living, and the workshop helps make pieces. The financial element enables the employees to rebuild their lives, and support their families... Which has been an incredibly fulfilling experience for Seed Of Intention.

Whether you choose Malas for spiritual growth, or just beautiful jewelry, I hope you find something you love!

...What's your Intention?

Namaste,
Amanda

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I LOVE creating custom mala necklaces and bracelets for my clients. Custom jewelry is a wonderful gift for a loved one, or for yourself!

If you are purchasing a non-custom item in my shop as a gift, please let me know if you would like a gift receipt included or a special handwritten note for your recipient.

If you would like to begin the process of a custom mala for yourself or a friend, please contact me with your ideas and what you would like. If you would like to read more about the custom process, please visit my blog post: https://www.seedofintention.com/blogs/news/how-to-manifest-your-intentions-with-a-custom-mala-prayer-bead-necklace

Custom Mala Necklaces are $200 (custom quote if very rare gemstones are selected)

Sizing details

Mala Bead Necklaces traditionally have 108 beads and are finished with a Guru Bead and Tassel. The size of the beads determines the length of the mala.

Small Malas average 28"-30" and are made with beads on average of 6mm. This size lays as a nice mid-length necklace, upper/mid-chest on a female.

Traditional Sized Malas are larger and average 40-42" and are made with beads on average of 8mm. These lay longer, roughly to the navel on a female and lower chest on a male.

Care instructions

Seed Of Intention Mala Bead Necklaces are strung on a very durable nylon cord. To extend the longevity of your mala please keep it out of water. Hot Yoga is ok for the Mala... overtime the humidity may make the Mala stretch, but that is normal for anyone who likes to wear/use their Mala as it is intended...daily :)

Gemstones used are all natural and not treated, they will not discolor or rub off color onto anything.

There is a belief that if your Mala breaks it means that the intention for which you needed the Mala has now been achieved! That said, it can be a bummer for your beloved Mala to break. For that reason, jewelry that has been broken due to the "karmic" cycle can be sent in for repairs.

Please contact me with any Wholesale inquiries at: amanda@seedofintention.com

Gift wrapping and packaging

All Seed Of Intention Mala Bead Necklaces come with a linen drawstring bag and are gift wrapped in a beautiful presentation box. All other Seed Of Intention jewelry items (bracelets, earrings, etc) come in the linen drawstring bag.

TASSELS!

Tassels "relax" over time and add to the character of your Mala but if you want it to stay looking newer, try a very light spray of hairspray! *needs to be an aerosol-type light spray, not a very wet spray.
If your tassel gets a little kinked up, just wet it and hang to dry. Silk is like hair, so its very easy to work with!
