This petite mala is lightweight for everyday wear. It can be worn as a necklace or triple wrapped for a bracelet or possibly anklet due to a hook closure on the tassel. There are three antique Thai Hilltribe silver counter beads and traditionally knotted jasper mala beads. Each bead symbolizes a thought or mantra, and each knot between beads represents the space between thoughts. The stones used in each mala have their own vibrations and meanings as well. Red jasper stimulates the three lower chakras, creating a strong connection to the earth and creating a sense of stability and balance. The African Turquoise jasper builds on this foundation by encouraging growth, development, and positive change. There is a handcrafted and hand stamped sterling silver charm on the tassel, with a carnelian stone bezel in the middle. Carnelian is a stone of courage, endurance and motivation.
All the jewelry from CrowTotemArts is handcrafted in my studio in California and created from designs drawn in my sketchbook. You can follow me on Instagram at Brandys_CrowTotem. As this is a traditional silk mala made with natural stones, it may be damaged by water, sweat, or vigorous activity. Each item is hand made and unique. Like all artisan jewelry, please handle with care.
