New Actaea Sea Shore Mala Necklace


“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) it’s always ourselves we find in the sea.”
~ e.e. cummings

A visit to the beach always leaves you feeling alive and cleansed – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The combination of sun, sea, and sand is the most natural and easily accessible form of therapy available to mankind. There is no better feeling of calmness and peace than walking barefoot on the sand, feeling the sea or ocean waves crash softly and tenderly on your toes.

Actaea, from the Greek word for sea shore, is one of the Nereids in Greek mythology. The Nereids were sea nymphs and goddesses of the sea’s rich bounty. They represent various characteristics of the sea from sea foam to sand, rocks, waves, and currents.

The Actaea mala is hand knotted with 108 beads and a Quartz guru bead. It is perfect for meditation and deep personal reflection. It is meant to bring calmness, peace, and tranquility of mind.

Approximately 44” in length, the necklace also has an approximately 2” focal bead and a 3.5” silk tassel.  The Actaea mala is made with 108 8mm beads with square beads marking the 27th count in the necklace.

Facts about Quartz

This clear stone is transparent and translucent. It comes in clusters, geodes, points, and polished or rough stones. It is a high-vibration stone and is known as the master healer because it works with all conditions.

Quartz is known and used since prehistoric times for the creation of many tools. It was especially popular in Europe where it was used in carvings, jewelry, and where it was the mostly revered and popular crystal.
In other cultures, such as ancient Egypt, people buried their dead with quartz upon the forehead to help them guide the departed safely into the afterlife. In ancient Japan quartz was used in scrying and crystal quartz spheres were considered representative of the heart of a dragon. They represented power and wisdom.
Furthermore, the word ‘crystal’ is derived from the Greek word for ‘ice’ and until the 1500’s people believed that clear quartz were an eternal ice sent from the Heavens. Similarly and also much earlier, Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder also believed that quartz was water permanently frozen after great lengths of time. He supported this idea by saying that quartz is found only near glaciers in the Alps.

Quartz possesses a really cool physical quality called piezoelectricity. It means that quartz can accumulate an electric charge. Once this quality was discovered scientists went nuts and tried for many years to create a synthetic version of quartz. But why you would ask? Well, it turns out that piezoelectricity is quartz’s superpower. Once it was discovered, quartz’s ability to store an electric charge was applied and used for the creation of an oscillator which converts direct current into an alternating current. Oscillators are widely used in many electronic devices. So here you go…you can thank quartz for the wide availability of electricity and the everyday use of machinery. Nowadays, quartz can be found in microphones, computer memory chips, radio receivers and transmitters, ultrasound devices, and watches.

Inspiration behind the New Agni Bliss of Inner Fire mala necklace

“… Be aflame in your hearts and create with love!”


Inspired by the Agni, one of the most important Vedic deities, the Bliss of Inner Fire necklace is made with the power of flame in mind.

Agni represents the vital spark of life and is therefore a part of all living things. Agni was said to be the son of ten mothers who were also sisters and who symbolize the ten fingers of the human hands. Another story suggests that Agni consumed his parents when he was born – a reference to how fire born out of two sticks rubbed together quickly burns and consumes them. Agni is described with two faces, suggesting both his destructive and beneficent qualities, with golden teeth, six eyes, seven hands, four horns, three legs, and seven fiery tongues. His skin is red. He has long black hair and eyes. He rides a ram and seven rays of light emanate from his body.

agni godAs an embodiment of fire, Agni can represent destruction and insatiable desires. However, Agni can also symbolize the natural ever awake inner will which aspires for the highest knowledge, for wisdom, for light. It is transformation through life time, energy, and action. Agni is a reminder to do everything with passion and to strive for more. It is a symbol of life and activity.

Agni is deeply connected to the earth because his birth brought light into the darkness. The earthy shades of the Agni Bliss of Inner Fire mala remind of this connection with gemstones like Snakeskin Jasper, Onyx, and Quartz. Snakeskin Jasper, for example, is a stone of courage and determination. Just like a snake, it allows the wearer to get rid of old patterns and habits and to embrace change. On the other hands, Gold Quartz, Fire Agate, and Carnelian remind of the fiery power of Agni. They enhance personal power, courage, and vitality.


With the use of the Agni Bliss of Inner Fire mala in meditation the practitioner can awaken confidence, energy, and vitality. The necklace represents enlightenment, disappearance of empty illusions and destruction of fears. It is approaching life and whatever it may bring with no fear.
