What is a Memory Mala?

Traditionally, malas are Buddhist prayer garlands used during meditation consisting of 108 beads and 1 larger guru bead that closes the loop. Each smaller bead represents a breath, a mantra, and/or intention and is used to keep count while the guru bead represents the student-teacher relationship. You can read more about traditional malas here. I believe... Continue Reading →

Karuna

It's funny how things work out. Call it coincidence or synchronicity. This mala has been hanging in my office for months. In the beginning of learning what these mala's would become, I bought several types of beads and when a color or style would inspire me I would just string one together. Not really having...

Alex

I'm always in awe when signs come through to validate a mala I'm creating. While working on Alex, more than once did I feel angels giving me direction and validation. It started a few days ago when I was at the craft store wasting time while a prescription was being filled. I had thirty minutes... Continue Reading →

Serenity 2

A favorite of everyone's, Serenity was gifted to someone who recently inspired me. It's beauty was striking and is still missed. Serenity 2 was inspired by the first creation and is a heavier version of the first. Rhodonite in rondelle shape creates a shorter and more weighty mala. Onyx and Howlite pick up and energize...

Hubby found these beauties at a pawn shop a few weeks ago. Loving these high vibrating stones. Also known as the "Tempest Stone". Known to take Shamanic journeying to a whole new level.

Her favorite color is brown so the first stones that came to mind were Tiger's Eye. I've also had... Continue Reading →

Rebecca

Dear Rebecca,  there's just too much to include in a tiny Thank You card and I'm certain there would be many more errors if I hand wrote this; so here's more of the back story to your mala and your personal page for posterity. Oh yeah, I'm the one that entered a submission a few... Continue Reading →

Yellow Tiger

Not too long ago I was at the bead store and this bright yellow strand was just screaming for me to pick it up and study it. It reminded me of summer and a slice of lemon pie. Fascinated to see what I could do with it I brought home a few. Nothing quite seemed... Continue Reading →

Balance

Black and White. Yin and Yang. I am so hypnotized by the different patterns each bead has in this mala. Spending time with each one sends me into a state of wonder and amazement.  In good light some of the stones even have transparency! Its funny how some beads are uniform in color and others...
