Hiya! I’m Emily, and I love working with gemstones and other natural materials to make healing jewelry-making supplies that make beading easier, as well as amplifying intention.
I designed my first mala board after having trouble keeping count of the 108 beads needed to string the mala, while simultaneously trying to concentrate on my intention. I found myself having to cut up and redo all the precious knotwork if I’d miscounted -- argh! That stunk. So I figured, it’d be much easier to make a board that counted for me.
With a little math and a lot of prototypes, I finally figured out how to make mala beading boards out of lovely birchwood. And bracelet bead boards weren’t far behind.
I hope you'll bop around a little bit and explore - and please hop on over to my YouTube channel if you're interested in learning more about using these boards, making focal and guru beads, pendants and more!
