Mala bead necklaces have traditionally been used in meditation and prayer in many Asian cultures. However, many wear them for purposes such as healing parts of the body, mind, spirit, or simply because they are drawn to the beautiful coloured beads. Making your own gemstone mala is a beautiful process through which you can incorporate blessings and intentions into your necklace. In this workshop, you will be guided through the process of creating your own mala. All materials required to make your mala is included in the cost. Only genuine semi-precious gemstones and precious metals are used to create your special mala.

This is an excellent opportunity to create your own personalized spiritual meditation mala. Journey as a beginner into the sacred world of malas, as we find your personal vibrational gemstones, paired with powerful intentions can be used as a transformational tool to manifesting and fulfilling your soul purpose and can assist you in finding a deeper meditation practice.

The Basic Mala is the one that will be made during the course of the workshop. It consists of 108 gemstone beads, silk tassel and string and a silver guru bead.

Also, a velvet pouch will be provided to aid in caring your perfect mala.

Masterful Makers - Luxury DIY Workshops.

The Art of being a maker!

Makers take raw materials and transform them into objects of desire. It is an art form, it is a craft, and it can be taught. 

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as 5 hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery crafted by yourself, a luxurious leather bag, a stunning knotted mala, or your own personalized luxury skincare products.

I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer, & maker of crafts. Coming from an Art History background, my love for art, the history of man, and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context, heavy with human drama, an artefact, an antique, pretty, and were relatively cheap. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire, I began to make my first wrapped earrings for fun. It was very therapeutic and relaxing until my husband at the time saw the box of earrings I had made, took them to work, and presented me with a box of money that afternoon, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began. That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now. 

I am not your typical jeweller. I aim for grand pieces with fabulous stones, thus the term rockstar. The rocks I deal with are sparkly and precious. I own and manage Gems, Rocks, Bling in Sydney, working from my Surry Hills studio. I specialise in bespoke one of a kind pieces featuring precious stones & metals. I also facilitate jewellery classes for groups and individuals.

My first love is of course jewels, but leather is a close second. I revel in the feel of beautiful buttery leather and discovered I loved creating items from it when I decided to make and design packaging for my jewellery.

30 September 2019 • Make your Own Gemstone Mala

I really enjoyed my mala workshop with Victoria, Victoria had lots of knowledge and was very friendly and vibrant

Victoria has many creative talents which she fortunately shares with her students, her amazing designer Malas are on display for inspiration. The class was small just the 3 of us which allowed for sufficient one on one tuition when needed. For the Mala making class Victoria welcomed us with herbal teas and presented an excellent selection of colourful beads, threads, tassels and accent silver pieces. We all left the class with our own unique personal completed Mala - which was fantastic and I now look forward to making more as gifts. I would definitely do the class again or Victoria’s advanced knotted beading class.

Victoria and her assistant were fantastic with our boys (ages 9,11yrs) she had them completely engaged the whole time with detailed information and activities. They loved cracking the geode rocks and they loved making the silver necklaces and learning about different types of rocks and how they are formed. We hope to have Victoria back again.
