I’m Karen Powers, the founder and designer at Full Moon Malas, the studio where I create 108 bead gemstone or wood malas and bracelets.
Full Moon Malas was born of my desire to create an intentional and spiritual piece of jewelry to honor a dear friend’s birthday. Word traveled and now Full Moon Malas are being sold in my studio and throughout New England yoga studios.
I’m a yoga teacher/practitioner and Reiki Master, so whether I’m designing ready-to-wear malas and bracelets or working with individual clients to create custom pieces, I bring my philosophy, spiritual practice and healing wisdom into our work together, and into each and every piece of jewelry you see here.
Every Full Moon Mala is crafted in a way that, depending on which gemstones are used, will help to balance, energize, inspire, and restore your well-being.
Before I even begin the design process, I place each gemstone under a full moon so the stones will absorb the energy of the moonlight and be raised to a higher natural vibration. The full moon is an auspicious time to support creativity and abundance as well as to transform and energize our consciousness, and I imbue each Full Moon Mala with this power.
Every mala is guaranteed for 6 months assuming normal wear and tear. Malas are by nature meant to be used and handled, and while mine are designed for exceptional durability, breaks do occasionally happen. To ensure the longevity of your beautiful piece, I use the most durable nylon beading cord, which is double threaded for extra strength. Many are double knotted by hand. Some malas are made using durable, flexible jewelry wire. Should your mala come apart or break within 6 months, I will repair it for free with the wearer assuming the costs of shipping and handling.
Visit my Gallery page to see some of the beautiful custom malas I have created with my clients and sold in studios across the country. While these items are not currently for sale, I hope this showcase will give you an idea of the myriad ways we can combine various beads, colors, focal beads, and healing powers to create a one-of-a-kind piece for you.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope your mala will bring you years of joy, radiance and positive energy.
From my heart to yours,
