All of our malas are designed and individually hand-crafted by the owner, Heather.

Only high-quality semi-precious gemstones, natural gemstones, glass beads, wood beads, sterling-silver, silver-plated metal, brass, copper, and lead-free pewter are used in our designs. Steps are taken during the manufacture of each item to ensure that beads and other materials are not broken or damaged.

Nearly all of the gemstones used in our malas are natural stones and are not currently known to be enhanced by the manufacturer. These natural stones receive the standard cutting and polishing and they may have some slight imperfections and inclusions. Gemstones which have a rating are A or B quality.

Yes. All malas are made with gemstones, woods, and metals. Tassels are 100% cotton.

Full length malas are crafted with professional-grade nylon coated wire, the most expensive and the best in the industry is used to string all of our mala beads. You may wonder how a mala strung on this wire may feel, the drape is very soft and flexible similar to any standard necklace you may wear, it is also kink resistant. Each full-size mala is given just the right amount of “give” to allow the beads to be moved for counting.

Wrist mala bracelets are made with a durable latex free stretch cord.
