A mala is a string of beads that are used in a meditation practice. It is a tool to help you count mantras, and acts as a tactile guide as you sit in silence. My malas are made with various types of beads, including wood, gemstones, and glass.
My journey began with a mala making class on Mother's Day 2017. The beautiful piece that I first created is aptly named The Mother and she has brought such peace to me as an addition to my meditation practice.
I specialize in custom orders, but I also create ready-to-wear malas available through my Etsy shop and at local markets in Sarasota. My malas are one of a kind, created in collaboration with each customer's intentions and manifestations.

Making these purposeful pieces not only allows me to be creative and align myself with each customer, but it is a much needed moment in time for me to just be. I learn something different each time, and the lessons I attain are just as important to me as what is then gained by the customer. I feel so fortunate to have found this passion, and my daily practice has now become my business.

The creative process begins with your three keywords/intentions that you would like to manifest. Many clients also include favorite colors, spirit animals, or symbols. Custom orders start at $30. Pricing is based on the total number of gemstones desired.
I love sharing my pieces at local locations. You can currently find a great selection of ready to wear malas at Wild Ginger Apothecary, located at 6557 Superior Ave here in Sarasota. Just pop me an email for more information.
"I am so thrilled and impressed with the custom mala Dana crafted for me. You can really feel the intention behind every choice of bead and stone in the necklace and she perfectly captured the concepts that I wanted this piece to evoke. It really is something unique and beautiful, and Dana is always a joy to work with and talk to. Highly recommended jewelry!"
I create both custom order malas as well as ready to wear pieces. Traditional malas have 108 beads and are typically worn doubled over when not being used for meditation. I have options for a fashion length mala to be used for adornment purposes, and I also can make both children and dog malas. Shorter lengths are a great budget friendly option for those who love the mala style and do not wish to use their piece for meditation.
I have crafted my first batch of ready to wear aromatherapy bracelets and this has led me to creating custom order mala and matching bracelet duos. Just mention this option in your contact form and we can chat about further details.
My malas can be utilized for meditation, adornment, and so much more! I have experience with creating coordinating mama and me malas, including sets for pet parents and their fur babies. Breastfeeding mothers love my malas to give their babies something to hold while nursing.
