Re-Introducing our handcrafted and incredibly special Mala Prayer Bead Stacking Bracelets. I must mention that these are Mala-inspired bracelets as I’d never want to claim that I can create anything close to what has been created in India for so many moons. So AWD’s are made out of respect and deference to a beautiful and rich part of India’s culture. We do, however, bless the Malas before they leave the studio, sending them out with intentions of harmonious and peaceful practices and for compassion and love for all sentient beings.
I’ve sought out precious statement beads from Nepal so that there would be a truly authentic feel to them. There are vintage Nepalese coins, natural Bodhi seeds from Nepal, Vintage Conch shell beads from Nepal, Tibetan script Om Mani Padme Hum brass beads with turquoise and coral inlay, and a hand carved Tibetan Buddha. Also our wood beads are handcrafted in the Philippines, coming to you from a family that has 30 years of expertise in making wood beads. Each bead is cut, turned, and polished in their backyard shop. Natural wood, without any additional stain, will stay beautiful for years to come and only deepen with wear.
