Very Nice Surprise!
Verified Purchase

I have bought myself several Intention Mala's from Tiny Devotions since about 2017. Each one has a very special meaning to me. This time I purchased a Snowflake Obsidian and I received a BEAUTIFUL Red Jasper heart pendent free with my order! These necklaces never disappoint me! I receive so many compliments, as I wear them both! Thank you for allowing me to wear my intentions every day! Nancy F. 08/09/2020

Malas are considered by most as an extension of their being. They are connected to our devotions, intentions, and mantras. These necklaces and bracelets represent the good we aspire to be as well as the values and traits we want to develop.

At Tiny Devotions, we make each necklace and ring by hand using mostly natural beads and stones and few other adornments. They are lovingly and carefully designed with you in mind, as we aim to support your journey of personal growth. We hope that they last a long, long time – but that isn’t always the case.

Since malas are made with natural semi-precious stones, wooden beads, and nylon thread, they do breakdown naturally.  The frequency of use or exposure to natural elements may cause the nylon thread to come apart or the beads and stones to soil. The beads and stones may crack or chip over time; and since these are natural stones, they do sometimes shatter when dropped.

The Explore Mala

You can extend the life of your malas by observing the following tips:

  1. Don’t expose your malas extreme heat or cold because it can damage the stones and change their color.
  2. Water, perfume, and chemicals can damage the beads as well as the thread, so avoid wearing your malas when swimming or bathing.
  3. Excessive sweating can also shorten the lifespan of your mala so try not to wear them during strenuous physical activities. We understand though, that you would like to wear your malas during yoga. 🙂
  4. Don’t sleep with your malas on.  It can be snagged and or cause choking (especially be careful when you gift a mala to a child).
  5. Avoid situations where the malas can get snagged, tugged at, or pulled. So if you’re carrying a child, it may be wise to take the mala off and keep it in a safe place.
  6. Avoid wrapping a mala necklace around your wrist, unless you have one which can be worn several ways. This can stretch the cord unnecessarily and cause the string to break.

What to Do if Your Mala Breaks?

When a mala breaks, it is normally considered a breakthrough or the end of that intention. Many people will let go of their mala and consider finding a new one that represents a new intention.

For others, that’s easier said than done. We  understand that your mala is precious to you – and we know you don’t want to let it go. We can repair your Tiny Devotions mala necklace or bracelet for you if you feel it is still serving you.
