PRODUCT STORY
According to ancient Indian medicine, our bodies are made up of 7 chakras—Sanskrit for wheels—that correspond to nerve ganglia and branches from the spinal column. Thought of as "windows to the soul," each chakra has its own color and is associated with a particular virtue: stability, balance, energy, compassion, communication, intuition, and receiving.

With their deep meanings and energizing hues, this series of 7 bracelets can offer the wearer a subtle reminder to reflect on the inner workings of their body and mind and to balance elements both physical and metaphysical. Choose a chakra with which you feel a personal connection, send a bit of spiritual empowerment to a friend in need, or don all 7 bracelets to prompt yourself to go through life with pure grace, understanding, and a sensitive soul. Handmade of glass by Jenny Gaynor in California.

The Artisan market is glutted with beaded things. Therefore, anything beaded is common, not UNcommon.

Personally, I like them, and they have meaning to me. That being said, though, I wonder if the market for Chakra bracelets would be limited?

Thanks for all of the votes and comments! A few folks have expressed worry that these might be a little more expensive than beads found in chain stores. Since the beads are handmade of high-quality glass by artist Jenny Gaynor, the price will reflect the materials used and the time and effort she puts into each bracelet. Since these items aren't available yet, we don't include the pricing in our community voting app. We're looking for feedback on the style, colors, and overall design. For more information about these bracelets, please take a look at the product story on the left.

Mala are meant to be made by very specific natural materials. It is the specific energy found in a specific stone or wood that effects the chakra!

These are so pretty to stack - I love the mixture of semi-precious gemstones and glass.

I know the artist, and she is a very spiritual person. So, the intent behind her work is very authentic.

While they are pretty, they're just as pretty as the dozens and dozens of other bracelets exactly like them.

These are cute. I would give these as gifts. I know many women who would find these bracelets fashionable and interesting due to the 'meanings' of each color.

it's not uncommon at all and it looks cheaply made and i am guessing it will be overpriced. I would have to say no but I said thumbs up because I do like the idea of it as I am a person with a wide collection of stringy, tribal, and meaningful bracelets from friends. But I don't think, if this were to be for sale, that I would buy it for a friend or myself.

To me, they are pretty ugly. I'd never buy these for myself or as a gift for anyone. The concept is okay but just not my style. Not unique at all.

I'm big into color therapy and a connection to chakras. Even if these stones are not healing in and of themselves, the reminder to focus inward is healing enough. I'd definitely purchase this or wishlist this for myself if the price is right : )
