Collection: Mala Necklaces

Heartstring Designs mala necklaces are made with 108 beads, and hand-knotted silk or nylon cord between each bead.  We use semi-precious gemstone beads and create each piece intuitively and with a specific intention.

 

• What is a mala? •

From the Sanskrit word meaning "garland", mala beads are traditionally used in meditation.  The mala is knotted between each bead, allowing one to count each bead while repeating a mantra.  My mala necklaces also use healing crystals (gemstones) to impart additional properties and, in addition to using in meditation, they can be worn as crystal jewelry.

 

• How to choose a mala •

There are many ways to use a mala.  In meditation, each bead is held between two fingers while repeating a mantra.  The necklaces can also be worn as crystal jewelry.  Choose the piece that resonates most with you - either for the colours of the beads, the pattern, the healing properties of the crystals used, or the intention of the piece.  There is no right or wrong answer!
