A mala of labradorite beads and a black amethyst pendant, designed to foster inner awareness and promote mental balance
Amethyst, a stone of spirituality and contentment, is set in a copper fitting and strung on the customary 108 beads that is a mala, a traditional Buddhist prayer necklace used for counting repetitions during spiritual practices. Iridescent labradorite is believed to be a protective stone as it strengthens natural energies within.
Mala beads are used while reciting, chanting, repeating a mantra during a spiritual practice or breathing during meditation. Turn each bead, held between the thumb and forefinger, for every prayer or breath. This keeps the focus on the meaning and/or sound of the mantra rather than being distracted by the need to count. Amethyst is believed to temper overindulgence and strengthen intuition and imagination. Here it’s set in copper, a conductor of energy. Labradorite is believed to enhance mental and intuitive aptitudes allowing for smooth explorations into deep levels of consciousness. Though a tool for spiritual practices, wearing this mala throughout the day can be a reminder of intentions. Note that crystal practitioners use crystals for specific purposes.

Becoming a self-taught jewelry maker was a natural turn for Natalie Mitchell, who studied textile design at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, California before founding Kolored Krowns, a line of jewelry inspired by the individuality of raw crystals as well as the range and depth of their colors. Working with natural gemstones, she creates jewelry as a way to capture what she considers “the mystery of life’s natural energies that remain unseen.” As she adds each bead and ties each knot, she repeats a mantra, infusing the finished necklace with intention.
