Mala Who?

Mala necklaces are commonplace in yoga studios. The necklace has 108 beads that are used to count mantras or hold focus in some forms of meditation. Different gemstones make up the jewelry; they bring a healing energy and support for your soul. Additionally, the necklace is a great physical reminder of your intention.

Step 1: Slide The Tassel & Guru Bead Onto The Cord

mala

  • Thread the cord through the tassel ring, bringing it to the center
  • String both ends of the cord through the guru bead (and spacer)
  • Slide the guru bead (and spacer) down to meet the tassel

*Tip: Use a dab of super glue on both ends of the cord (it will make the beads go on much more easily)

Step 2: Adding Beads

  • Note: The necklace will have 108 beads total; 54 on each side
  • Make a knot on top of each bead, as close to the bead as possible
  • Repeat
  • The final knot will be between the two sides (54/54) at the nape of the neck
  • Troubleshooting: The bead hole is clogged / difficult to thread onto the cord

    • Insert the unclogging tool into the center of the bead
    • Gently twist the tool back and forth shaving down the inside of the bead until the clog is removed

Step 3 (Optional): Adding A Charm Or Pendant
