Would you love a mala necklace but none of the pre-designed ones call your heart? Let's co-create one especially for you.
This listing includes a co-created mala necklace + a personal questionnaire I send to you. I also offer the option of co-creating a piece after a 30-minute personal consultation with me over the phone, Facetime, Skype or in-person (if you are local). You can take a look at that option here.
2. I will then help you choose the crystal beads, pendant + animal charm (for this listing, it will be either Koala or Kangaroo) that I intuitively feel can support the specific intention you are working with. I will send two different crystal combination options to you via email on an easy-to-download PDF file.
3. Once you choose the combination you love the most, I will send a link for any pending balance (this is dependent on the crystals you chose). I then will purchase the necessary materials and design your mala.
4. Once I receive your materials I will send you a photograph of the beads on my special mala board, organized in the order they will be knotted. Please allow 1-2 weeks to receive this.
At this point, you can make edits/changes around the order of the beads, if you want any. Any additional changes at this point (i.e. if you want to change the beads we had chosen, for example) will be charged for separately.
5. Once I receive your approval on the design, I will knot the mala and ship it to you within 1 week. Please note that once the mala is knotted, I cannot re-design it.
PRICING & RETURNS
*Pricing for co-creating your piece varies depending on the crystals we choose for your piece. Pricing starts at $280 and may increase depending on the cost of the crystals/stones you select, and 50% of the proceeds will be donated to WIRES, an organization helping rescue and care for affected wild animals in Australia.
*I take the payment upfront before sending out the questionnaire for all custom pieces.
*If you choose beads that will increase the price, I will send a separate link for the rest of the payment once we have agreed on the specific design for you. I will create a special listing for you on my website and send you the link so you can proceed with the rest of the payment from there.
*Due to the nature and the amount of time I put into these pieces, I cannot accept returns or exchanges at this time. Because of their unique qualities and dedicated work that goes into each of them, co-created piece holds a special kind of magic. I stand behind the quality of my work and can assure you will love your piece!
