Mala Handmade–A Handmade Jewelry Review

A dear friend of mine has opened a new store on Etsy--Mala Handmade. This was a labor of love. I know because as I struggled with my novels, she debated whether or not to turn her love of jewelry making into something more. As much as she encouraged me to pursue my dreams, I did the same. And after months of work, Mala Handmade was born!

Before the website was up, I bought four of her pieces. Three bracelets and a necklace. Each piece is made with such attention to detail and the finest stones and materials available. Instead of merely stringing peridot stones on a bracelet, she created a pattern of ย accents that are both eye-catching and one-of-a-kind. She is extremely talented. Her pieces are versatile too and can be a part of your everyday wear or saved for a special occasion. Each piece is infused with her style–think Bollywood meets Vogue.

One of my favorite things is to layer the bracelets. They look so elegant and fabulous together.

The prices might feel like a bit of a splurge, but once you take into account that she uses the best materials (everything is made with genuine stones not glass beads and that she uses silver and gold metals) and hand makes each piece herself, you realize you are buying a showpiece not just an accessory.

  4. Wow, that top piece is really lovely…will have to check out her Etsy site…always on the hunt for good, handmaid things. Congrats to her on a job well done (and to you, of course, for a nice post :P)

  5. Gorgeous stuff! I can see the jewelry making a plain outfit dazzle. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Great “bling” for conferences and such. Hmm…

    • She really has an eye for jewelry making. I have several of her bracelets. They jazz up conference wear. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not sure if her store is still selling stuff though. I visited a while back and nothing was on sale. Maybe she just sold out?

  6. Wow! I ‘collect’ earrings – and those are collectible!!
