There’s No Place Like Now Mala – Lava Rock & Tigereye


Hand knotted in the California sun, cleansed by the full moon, & made with the mantra “There's no place like now.”

There's No Place Like Now malas are a gentle reminder that we can only be in one place, and that place is the present moment. Traditionally the guru bead represents your own teacher or the higher, universal Self. In the place of the traditional gemstone, these malas contain a vintage watch face, pointing to Now, reminding us that we can learn from every moment, that every observation and interaction we have imprints itself upon us. If we remain receptive, our inner guide grows stronger, helping us along the path we choose to follow in life.

This mala is made of natural lava rock and gorgeous tigereye beads, which stand out against the bright pops of color from the neon yellow tassel and blue watch face. Lava rock is a stone of strength and guidance, and it is exceptionally grounding. It can help provide stability during times of change and is believed to calm emotions and provide clarity. Tigereye promotes passion, courage, and positive thought. Also a stabilizing and grounding stone, it is known to promote integrity, willpower, and self-confidence, helping one accomplish the goals set in front of her.

There’s No Place Like Now malas are made from vintage watch faces. Each mala is unique. One may find tiny scratches on the watch face or the housing, though if there’s anything large I wouldn’t be using it to craft this item. I note the color of the watch metal below, but please note that I have no idea of the true contents of the metal in the watch piece.

This mala is made of 102 lava rock beads and 6 tigereye beads strung on neon yellow nylon for endurance. The watch piece is silver, and the tassel is a vibrant neon yellow. This watch keeps good time at “now”, not straying off course to the future or the past.

Bead size: 8 mm lava rock; 8 mm tigereye
Mala length (minus tassel): 40 inches, guru bead hitting close to the navel center

All malas are hand-knotted by me. I use “There’s no place like now,” as a mantra during knotting, and all malas are cleansed in the full moonlight before shipping. You receive a mala ready to be imbued with your energy!
