Please see below for some of the wonderful feedback I have received from custom mala clients, website customers and workshop participants.
"I received the malas today and they are even more beautiful than I expected! The packaging, notes etc are all so thoughtful and lovely, I adored everything. I will be giving my mother’s on Christmas Day when we meet again and I am sure she will feel the same. Thank you so much for the time and love you put into creating them." Marilia, UK
"Over the past few months, I have had the pleasure of ordering three lovely malas from ChantMalas. Each one has been carefully and lovingly crafted. The attention to detail is obvious. Recently, I received a custom-made mala, which Helen crafted, with my input, to address my particular set of circumstances. It is simply beautiful and soothing to wear. It is quite evident that the creation of these malas is a labour of love, and that Helen truly cares about her customers. I feel lucky to have found her site!" Jen, UK
'Thank you so much for the beautiful mala: the old woman and the sea! It's I think now three weeks ago that I received the mala wrapped in a package full of love in my mailbox and when I opened the package and I saw the mala, my heart immediately was opened wide open. So beautiful! I'm very happy with this precious and personal mala and I wear it every day and I feel the energy of the crystal of the mala working with me. I'm not a mala person :) but this one realy makes it that I will wear it every day. Also thank you for including the mantra's and how to clean the mala. I hope that youre other mala's find their way too, because there are so different and more personal than other mala's I have seen till now.' Els, Nederlands
'I just wanted to let you know how much I adore my mala. I can't quite put my finger on the feeling I get when I hold or wear it, maybe I will figure it out over time or maybe it can't be put into words but its exquisitely beautiful and reassuring and RIGHT. It just feels right. Thank you' (Amanda, England, UK)
'I wanted to let you know that the mala arrived today. It's so wonderful - completely perfect - and I'm so very grateful to you for all your help. There really aren't enough words of delight and gratitude to express how I feel, so I hope that you can understand.' Kira, France
