Inspired by the wild and beautiful oceans, islands and beaches these are very special Mala necklaces.
We have opened pre-order of these designs with shipping estimated by the end of November.
Each one is lovingly handmade for us in Bali, to our designs, by the famous Aum Rudraksha studio, then blessed with a traditional Balinese blessing before arriving in us in Sydney. We have visited this amazing studio and the team in person we are very honoured to work with them to create our designs.
Our Mala necklaces are made ethically using responsibly sourced gemstones, high quality, authentic rudraksha seed beads, and our signature beach glass pieces.
Each necklace has the beautiful rudraksha seed beads, and a mixture of these authentic gemstones : Turquoise, Amazonite, Aquamarine, Lapis, Blue Lace Agate, White Howite and silver beads, alongside 3 pieces of sea smoothed beach glass in white and turquoise.
Aum Rudraksha says that these sacred rudraksha beads are regarded as the timeless jewels of the gods, being the most powerful aid in the path of Self-realisation. It is believed that Rudraksha beads grow on trees that have emanated from the tears of Lord Shiva, and used for centuries in Hinduism and Buddhism for Self-empowerment and to live a fearless life.
The beads we use are grown on Aum Rudraksha's sustainable plantations in Indonesia. They use first quality untumbled beads. Rudraksha beads have different faces and varieties. The Rudraksha bead we use are the five mukhi which is the most common Rudraksha. It has five natural lines from head to bottom which symbolize the five forms of Lord Shiva, the symbol of auspiciousness.
I have personally visited this amazing studio in Bali and their values and vision align so well with us here at Spindrift. We feel very honoured to work with them to create our designs.
One of the many things that I just love about the studio we work with, is that before the Mala's leave Bali the studio blesses them with a traditional Balinese blessing. If you have ever been to Bali, you will remember the amazing blessings and offerings that take place daily across the beautiful island. I felt so connected to Bali when I visited and I know that I can't wait to visit again once borders open again and we can travel freely. But until such time, I love that i can still connect with the place and its people through the Malas.
I hope that you love them as much as we do,
