This beautiful beaded mala represents the strength and beauty of a woman named Poonam. Widowed at 23 with three young daughters to raise, Poonam has struggled to survive in her North Indian village. Each necklace is handcrafted by Poonam herself and represents good luck. The mala is made with brown agate, a rich brown crystal that symbolizes victory in conflict and increased intelligence, along with colored gems to represent the chakra which centers the body’s spiritual powers.
The starfish represents women like Poonam and the potential for greatness they all have within. If you take the time to pick up just one starfish and throw it back into the ocean, its chance of survival becomes enhanced.
100% of proceeds from the purchase of this mala go towards creating a future for Poonam and her three girls.
