A DELICIOUS COLLABORATION with MalaRae ♥
The owner, Kyla, reached out to me in 2015 while I was pregnant with the intention of co-creating beautiful handmade jewelry – inspired by me. I shared what was unfolding in my life at that time + the things I desired to focus on, and she took this information and created the pieces you see here. I wear these beauties often and find the energy + high vibration of them to really provide that good feeling of adorning oneself well. I’m honored to join this authentic process & am thrilled to have been a part of her grand mala beading vision!

Picture Jasper is known as the “supreme nurturer”. A stone of balance, it is believed to provide a deep sense of harmony and inner peace. It can help to enhance creativity, bestow courage, strengthen willpower and provide protection against negativity. It’s also believed to help boost the immune system, aid in detoxification, stimulate circulation and increase energy. Jasper can be used to cleanse, boost and realign all the chakras.
Red Tigereye provides mental focus and confidence. It enhances integrity, willpower, self-confidence, practicality and correct use of power. It can help in overcoming difficult challenges, despite discouraging setbacks. It can also attract wealth and property. For these reasons, it is sometimes used to bring professional and financial success. It is also believed to protect during travel. Red Tiger Eye is associated with the sacral and solar plexus chakras.
Rose Quartz is known for many qualities, including its ability to open the heart, enhance creativity, and heal emotional wounds and broken hearts. It is especially nurturing to those who have lost their mother. It is believed to be beneficial to the heart and circulatory system and aid in relieving anxiety. Considered the crystal of unconditional love, it speaks directly to the heart chakra.
Amethyst is known as a stone that enhances meditation, wisdom, creativity, and spiritual awareness. It carries calming energy that encourages stability and peace. It is especially beneficial in strengthening the immune system. In addition, it is often used as a stone of comfort for those grieving the loss of a loved one. Amethyst stimulates the third eye and crown chakras.
A little back story about MalaRae, the small business we can thank for this beautiful co-creation:
MalaRae is a unique mala company based in the Ottawa region of Canada. The owner, Kyla Rae, designs and makes each piece herself with care, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. As the process of making malas influences the energy of mala beads, each piece is made with love and only during a positive and peaceful state of mind. We use only top quality semi-precious gemstones and crystals. Our malas are handmade and knotted between each stone. The number of stones in our malas are made to the specific spiritual number of 9. We do not mass-produce our pieces, and we do not outsource the making of our pieces to factories abroad. Once complete, each piece is sage cleansed and moonlit charged. It is our hope that this space and our mala beads bring your mind, body and spirit a sense of true peace and positivity.
