One of my happiest collaborations has been with the hugely talented Jacqueline Medayle from the beautiful island of Salt Spring in Canada. We have worked on 2 designs together this year our exquisite aquamarine mala and onyx mala. Her attention to detail and creativity is an absolute delight; I’m looking forward to 2019 and new designs to share with you. Please pop across to her website https://saltspringmalas.com/making-mala-beads/ to see her whole collection of mala beads and yoga jewellery.
“A large quartz rock is the foundation of their studio. In their community this quartz is legendary for healing energy. Jacqueline designs and hand makes all of the jewellery in a studio surrounded by evergreen forests. In addition, they live in a community focused on peace, tranquility, and well being.”
” It is always a pleasure to design with you, and the influence of elegance and quality in your line is a true inspiration for creating the luxurious malas in your collection. I feel this design is beautiful, light, perfect for Spring and Summer, and inspired by the fine work found in antique Tibetan jewellery. It is the highest quality mala I’ve ever made.” Jacqueline
The delicate silver work on the lotus prayer box which opens and closes makes this such a special piece; I adore it. In Tibet people place prayers or pictures in them and wear them around their neck as a protective amulet.
Alongside the aquamarine and onyx mala we have the pretty rose quartz and magnesite malas; if you’re a yogi like me, you may like to wear them during your meditation practice.
