Compassionate Flowers 54 count Mala

I love creating unique and eclectic jewelry. My speciality is malas.

Malas are used in Tibetan Buddhism as a meditation tool and to keep count of mantras. Usually they are made up of 108 beads, this one I did in 54 beads.

The starting point for me was the ivory colored lamp work bead that I found. It has tiny flowers on the body of the bead and I immediately thought of spring.

I used rose quartz, carnelian, clear quartz and rhodonite gemstone beads. The flower markers are carnelian.

It is my hope that anyone who sees this mala will think of spring and smile!
