A traditional 108 beads mala made with 6mm beads of matte white Howlite, matte picture Jasper and fragrant sandalwood from India. Hand knotted on pure silk and finished with a hand made cotton tassel. Silver accents. Howlite is a stone of peace and patience and one of the most calming stones in the mineral kingdom. It helps against insomnia due to an overactive mind. Picture jasper is a stone of harmony and closeness to nature. It also activates our innate creativity. Grounding sandalwood anchors us in the present moment and its delicate scent has a peaceful and calming effect on the mind.
Can also be made without the tassel and with hill tribe silver accents instead, just leave a note in the comment section when purchasing.
I want my malas to endure the use they are created for, so only high quality precious gemstones, all natural materials, and the best silk stringing material are used in making them. The metals are silver or gold-plated silver. The logo plate is surgical steel. The gently fragrant sandalwood comes directly from India. Mala beads are not merely beautiful and precious - they carry within something ancient. They have the ability to touch the soul.
Taika is Finnish for 'magic'. AnnakaTaika mala is a tool for positive change. It's a daily reminder of inner power, nature's magic, and your pure intention. My malas make me feel stronger and more open and real. I want the same for you. I'd love to create a unique custom mala just for you, to support your journey and fill your life with even more kindness, love, joy... and magic!
