Each mala (necklace) contains 108 beads. This is a sacred number with 9x12 equaling 108, 9 relates to the the macro reality of our solar system's 9 planets and 12 zodiac signs, and the micro reality of the body's 9 major organ systems and 12 arteries to the heart. The beads are strung with nylon wire using .925 sterling silver finishings and a totem or 'sumeru' to represent our chosen intention. Set your intention by repeating it out loud or in your mind, pressing into each bead with your fingers. By charging the stones with your intention, the piece will carry the energy on your intention on your behalf and serve to align your aura to your intention.
Lovingly handmade by Camille Stone in Toronto, Canada. Made with genuine stones and sterling silver.
