Welcome to Touchstone Mala Design
About Touchstone Mala
Touchstone Mala design is an artisan company located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. My vision is to create and design high-quality, hand-crafted Mala jewelry to support your meditation and yoga practice.
Each Mala is thoughtfully designed using 108 beautiful semi-precious gemstone beads, durable nylon thread in a rich array of complimentary colors and finished using two guru beads and 3.5-inch tassel. Following traditional Mala design, each Mala is carefully hand-knotted between each bead, symbolic of the challenges, both good and bad, that we encounter in life.
At Touchstone Mala you will find a rich selection of colorful Mala necklaces and bracelets. Each piece is designed around the beauty and healing properties of a specific gemstone and/or focused on a particular chakra. These hand-crafted Malas are created for use as prayer beads during your meditation practice and can be worn or carried afterwards as a touchstone for grounding and centering. With use, your Mala becomes increasingly infused with the power of your intentions and the soothing feeling of holding the beads in your hands is a phenomenal tool for healing and growth.
About the Designer
My name is Kathryn and I am the Mala jewelry designer at Touchstone Mala Design. I am a certified 200-hr Yoga teacher specializing in Meditation, Yin Yoga, Restorative and Hot-Stone Restorative Yoga and member of Yoga Alliance. Throughout the years of my own meditation practice I have grown to love and appreciate the Mala as an invaluable meditation tool. I am particularly drawn to the beauty of gemstones; their connection to the earth, the cool sensation to the touch and the subtle power they emanate that aides in grounding and healing.
My intention is to inspire you, through the use of Mala jewelry, to either begin or enhance your current meditation practice and experience the myriad physical, mental and spiritual benefits. I invite you to have a look, explore and see which Mala speaks to you...
