I tried to take up a jewelry making hobby for years, acquiring random tools and supplies at random times. It never really stuck though. Then during Yoga Teacher Training I discovered mantra meditation, a practice that combines my love for singing and the natural beauty of gemstone malas. I began making my own malas and that quickly led to other jewelry. I finally found my style, working with gemstones, and currently sell both malas and other jewelry on Etsy at LauraWJewels. Please contact me if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for and would like a quote on a custom piece!
