Hi! We're Kim and Kate, the faces, hands and hearts behind Radiant Malas.
The seed for our business was planted years ago when, together, we first learned about the spiritual, vibrational, and healing powers of a gemstone mala. Through our own journey we learned how to use the energy of the mala in our everyday lives to create positivity, set intentions, and manifest our dreams. While enjoying the powerful benefits of our own malas we decided to put our creative talents together to design Radiant Malas. Our intention is to share what we’ve learned about the vibrational power of gemstones and how working with and wearing a mala can support you in your steps towards deeper self-awareness and inner-transformation.
All of our malas are made by us in our Boulder, Colorado studio. We curate each one using hand-selected, high quality gemstone beads, a unique guru bead and a hand- tied tassel. We use the traditional over-hand knotting technique - a simple, strong knot between each bead. Radiant Malas are all one-of-a-kind made with love and intention.
We source all of our beads from a trusted vendor who engages in responsible manufacturing, sustainable development and fair trade. We pride ourselves on choosing the the highest quality gemstone beads and we love finding unique guru beads - some sourced from a local vendor, some sourced from specialty shops found on our travels. Our process is thoughtful and creative.
Our first step is to lay out all of the beads and cleanse them with sage. Then we work creatively to choose a complimentary guru bead, knotting thread and tassel thread. (We also hand make make each and every tassel.) Throughout this process, and the knotting production process, we play mantras (here are some of our favorites), meditate and work together. We consider our work to be a spiritual art form.
We are all radiant. We all shine. But in this busy world, sometimes we need a physical reminder to act mindfully, inspire inner peace, and radiate positive energy.
