Project by Janice Parsons
Sample by Janice Parsons

Fresh from the beadshop.com Facebook LIVE broadcast from 1/4/16, Protection is a new sample in our Mala design. This piece features Labradorite, said to be the most powerful protection stone. We mix it with Quartz Crystal along with a carved component from our Vintage Finds and a silky tassel. This project uses 6mm beads instead of the 8mm that we used in our previous Malas, resulting in a more delicate finished project.

Please Note: as our Vintage Finds Collections are all limited supply, we found a replacement for the carved component that was originally used and is no longer available.

We rate this project “Beginner” taking about 4-6 hours to complete. Review the Ingredients List for quantities of ingredients needed, and then open the SHOP and TOOLS tabs above to purchase.
