Inspired by her yoga and meditation practice Sara started to make malas. A mala is traditionally a tool used in meditation practices and consists of 108 counting beads, 3 spacer beads and one set of charms for the guru bead. Shorter males are 27 beads. Each of the longer malas is strung with natural gemstone beads, handmade metal beads and charms and can be worn as either a bracelet or a necklace. One of Sara’s favorite meditation practices is to match one breath to each bead as she goes through the mala.
