About Zen Spirit Malas and Designer Katherine Corrigan

Welcome to Zen Spirit Malas, I’m Katherine and this is where I create with your lifestyle in mind. It's just me, happily creating Handmade Meditation Malas, Spiritual Jewelry, Big and Tall Malas, and other tools and accessories to aid in your expression, intention, and mindful living. I provide a place for like-minded people to find meditation supplies at affordable prices. I receive great joy in creating designs to aid in your tranquility and style.

I have been meditating since I was a little girl. Under my Mothers tutelage, I became very comfortable with daily meditation. I have shared the practice of meditation with friends, family, my grandchildren, and even strangers.

One morning I was explaining how meditation can bring tranquility by calming the mind and removing chaos and I was asked about " tassel necklaces", aka, mala meditation bead necklaces. I shared my knowledge and created my first mala. After that, I knew I needed to create these wonderful tools for you, and I opened my shop.

Most of the malas (beaded meditation and prayer necklaces) at Zen Spirit Malas are 108 beads long, They are designed to be used as a meditation tool or worn as attractive jewelry to keep your intention with you.

A non-denominational prayer is recited during the creation of each piece. Many of my malas feature an attractive guru bead, stone, or pendant above the tassel.

Welcome, I look forward to creating for you. I pride myself on providing 5- star customer service and high-quality customer care &reasonable priced handcrafted items. I always create my products in a smoke-free and sanitary manner. Zen Spirit Malas was previously known as Be Well Gifts.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a positive review. If you are ever unsatisfied with your purchase kindly contact me prior to leaving your review. 100% 5-star customer satisfaction is always my goal. Customer Satisfaction is my biggest Reward and greatest Advertisement!
Color Note- Some computer monitors may not show colors accurately and may vary slightly from the item's actual color.
Most items in my shop have color options for beads and tassels. Please keep in mind that stained beads vary in shades. I do my best to have them all as close in color as possible. Sometimes when the wood is milled into beads it can have a slight variation as well. It is impossible to have them all the same. These slight differences only add to the artistry of a handmade piece.
Beads- are made from scraps of Birchwood, it is known for its cleansing and detoxifying properties. The Birch tree has been referred to as the Giving Tree. Beads may be coated with a finishing wax, to help maintain color after dying.
I use Wood, Gemstones, Semi Precious Gemstones, Swarovski Crystals, Polished Stones, Cotton, Silk, Dye, Wax, and many other beautiful elements to create items for my shop.
Special note the unwaxed ebony beads are prone to different shading per batch and can range in color from a brown to a black.
I occasionally use recycled beads, if that is the case it will be noted in the listing. Most of my beads are milled, stained and hand waxed. I have found that waxed beads are easier to use while meditating and can be shaped to be more consistent in size. The wood bead under the wax is the same as I have always used.
Cord and Tassel are a silk and cotton blend, mala necklaces in my shop meet or exceed the suggested 30 pound test.
OTHER DETAILS
Like snowflakes, beads and stones will vary in color and shape, no two milled beads are exactly alike, bumps and dings occur, and this only adds to the joy of owning a handmade piece.
• Malas may be a bit tight at first; they will relax with regular use.
• Other photos are meant to inspire you when ordering a custom mala.
• Instructions are included with every mala purchase
• I receive joy by creating malas to aid you in your practice in moving in rhythm with breathing, prayer, and mantra.
• A mala is a dharma item and can be treated as such by keeping it in a safe place among your spiritual books or placed in a box or bag. Unless you are wearing it as spiritual jewelry.
• To complete the 108 bead mantra can take about 45 minutes depending on the speed of your recitation.
• The 7 beads and 21 beads mantra will take less time if you do not have the 45 minutes to dedicate.

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ and MISC. GOOD TO KNOW-
When the description reads "silver plated" in most cases it is silver plated over brass. Sterling silver is .925 sterling silver. Some computer monitors may not show color accurately. What you see may vary slightly from the item's actual color. Please keep in mind that any slight difference or variation in bead color, stain, or design only adds to the charm of owning a handmade piece. As with any handmade piece, no two can be made exactly alike, but each one is like the photograph. Thank You for your support and for your purchase.

SILVER and GOLD PRICES FLUCTUATE and may affect prices in the shop.
THE PHOTOS- Most of the photographs in my shop belong to me and were taken by me. A few of the photos of customers using my products are being used with written permission from my lovely customers and may, or may not, have the talented photographer’s watermark.
PLEASE send me your photo! All photographs regardless of the origination (mine or a customer) may not be used, reproduced, or claimed. But you can pin it on Pinterest! ♥
CUSTOM ORDERS- are always encouraged. When you request a custom or reserved listing we will either discuss via phone or email exactly what you would like created.

ORDER CONFIRMATION
-You will receive a purchase confirmation email from Etsy and from my Zen Spirit Malas ( Gmail). If I have any questions I will include them with your emailed order confirmation email. Please take a moment to add azenspiritshop1 at gmail.com to your contacts address list. To keep confirmations, questions, etc. from going into your bulk mail.
TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS-
If an item in my shop is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price or description, I reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order placed for the product listed incorrectly. I reserve the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether the order has been confirmed and payment has been received. I will issue a refund or in the case of an incorrect price listing, I will request additional payment for the difference before shipping.
CARING FOR YOUR SILVER PURCHASE-
Help prevent tarnishing by storing your silver jewelry in a cool, dry place. Moisture in the air causes silver to tarnish. If necessary, you may want to purchase a silver polishing cloth.
MY MALA HAS A DIFFERENT COLOR THAN YOUR PHOTO-
Unfortunately, some computer monitors may not show colors accurately and may vary slightly from the item's actual color. Please keep in mind that stained beads vary in shades. I do my best to have them all as close in color as possible. Sometimes when the wood is milled into beads it can have a slight variation as well. It is impossible to have them all the same. This slight difference only adds to the artistry of a handmade piece.
SPECIAL NOTE-
The recycled ebony beads are prone to different shading per batch and can range in color from brown to black.
WHAT IF MY MALA BREAKS-?
Mala necklaces in my shop meet or exceed the suggested 30 lb test. If your mala breaks or you need it to be remade. Please contact me for pricing.
WHY ARE SOME OF YOUR BEADS WAXED?
Most of the beads I use now have been dipped and hand-waxed polished and are non-toxic. Using waxed beads allows for a more comfortable feel, a smoother finish, and richer color. Sizes, shapes, and colors may vary with handcrafted items. I may still use unwaxed beads for a few of my designs until I have depleted my inventory.
WHAT KIND OF WOOD ARE YOUR BEADS MADE FROM?
All my wood beads are Birch. Birch is known for its cleansing and detoxifying properties. The Birch tree has been referred to as the Giving Tree. As noted above some beads have also been wax coated. Bead shape and stain may vary when they are in the stain pots or when the wood is milled and shaped. Please keep in mind that any slight difference or variation in beads and stones color, stain, shape, or design only adds to the charm of owning a handmade piece. As with any handmade piece, no two can be made exactly alike, but each one is like the photograph or as requested.
I WANT TO GIVE MY NEPHEW A MALA WHAT AGE IS BEST TO START MEDITATION?
I started meditating without a mala when I was a little girl probably about age 8. Malas are not intended for children under the age of 8. As they can pose a choking hazard. If you feel your nephew is the appropriate age for this tool, give him a gift of tranquility and mindfulness.
HOW LONG ARE YOUR MALAS?
You will find that most of my traditional 108 bead style malas are approximately 36 inches in length (not including the tassel) which is a hang ( hang) length of 18 inches from the neck to the guru bead, with resting beads placed at 7 and 21 and 21 and 21 or 7 and 7.
WHY CAN I SEE SOME OF THE CORD?
It is perfectly normal to see a bit of the cord, this allows for ease in manipulation of the beads and for draping them comfortably around your neck.
DO ALL MALAS HAVE 108 BEADS?
Malas can also be 54 or 27 beads. These malas are used for shorter meditation practices and are excellent for on the go or for travel. My custom mala beads are strung to fit your need, count, or style request.
DO TASSEL COLORS HAVE A MEANING?
Yes, some believe the tassel color is important. Others believe it is a lovely finishing touch but is without and significant meaning. Most of the tassels are "built into your piece" not added afterward.
WHAT DOES THE TASSEL ON THE MALA MEAN?
The tassel is often decorative. But because of the many strand of a tassel it can also represent many becoming one.
