Obsidian Mini Mala
Hello Gold Sheen Obsidian Mini Mala!
I wanted to design a mala that was shorter and simpler and sparkled. A mala that could be worn as part of a layering of necklaces, that was shorter and easier wear around the neck, and that could be very versatile. These mini-malas are IT!!
This collection was inspired by my desire to wear my beautiful gemstones more frequently. I found that I often left my Malas home, simply because they were too long to wear with a particular outfit, or the place that I was going would make wearing a long mala difficult. But I was sad because I so often wanted to have my crystals and intentions with me, and I knew that I had to design a more functional mala. And so this collection was born.
Each mala in this collection will be made with a single gemstone, 6mm size, and be patterned the same way, with markers every 21st bead. There are beautiful faceted 18K gold hematite beads that lead to the tassel. These add some sparkle and versatility to the piece, allowing it to be worn in much more formal settings—which I am praying there are more of in 2021.
These beautiful Malas are made with the smaller 6mm beads, for a total of 84 beads. They are knotted at the top half, and the bottom half is straight beading. They can still be used for meditation, and travel so well.
