Dawn, you can have whatever title you like.
Mala is the original Sanskrit word for the prayer beads used for counting mantras. Authentic malas are made up of either 21, 28 or 108 beads. In order to retain that authentic characteristic, our She Recovers Mala bracelet designs have 21 beads strung together on stretchy cord. Our larger sized bracelets (medium and large) still have 21 main beads, but they include tiny seed beads between the beads in order to increase size.
The “accent” center bead in each She Recovers Mala bracelet (semi-precious stone or wood) is always a different color than the rest, and represents a singular woman in recovery (recovering from anything, all pathways of recovery) surrounded by the individuals who make up her support system (represented by the rest of the semi-precious stone or wood beads).
Please be aware that the color of gemstone, wood or rudraksha beads used in our She Recovers Malas will vary slightly depending upon availability from our suppliers. In addition, different monitor settings mean that colors of gemstone, wood or rudraksha beads may also vary somewhat from what is pictured for the item.
Important: We recommend that you measure your wrist before ordering. You should order a bracelet that is at least .25 inch larger than your wrist which will be a close but still comfortable fit as the bracelet stretches. Be sure to order a bracelet that is at least .50 inch larger than your wrist if you like to wear bracelets looser. Bracelets that are more than 1.50 inch larger than your wrist will be quite loose.
Also important: There are no exchanges or refunds available on malas. Please be certain to order the correct size and please be gentle with these sacred recovery malas. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Taryn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
