Earth, Water, Sky...

I've added two new malas to my Etsy shop this week.
I made these malas while sitting in the presence of Amma (The Hugging Saint) during Devi Bhava in 2008. Devi Bhava is a celebration in honor of the Divine Mother, in all Her forms...

This mala is made of sodalite...


and this one is made of clear quartz crystal, and rudruksha beads...

I held onto them because they were blessed by Amma, but finally decided they would do more good out there somewhere, being used for prayer and meditation...

I have always had a fascination with prayer beads and their use thru out history. Making these prayer beads for me is a form of prayer in itself...
