BIG MALA NECKLACE
BIG MALA NECKLACE
A piece of jewelry is always special--whether an heirloom string of pearls or a handcrafted work of art you discovered all on your own.
Since you no doubt own pearls already, we paired with maker Caitie Sherrick, of Leocadia K., to bring you the latter. Sophisticated, sculptural necklaces that both modernize and pay homage to the mala beads.
Choose from four bohemian chic colors:
- Wave: Add excitement to your favorite v-neck and boyfriend jeans duo with this gentler, subtler version of torquoise.
- Avocado: Ground your caramel-colored paintsuit and favorite "I got this" heels with this earthy hue.
- Mustard: Top off your favorite everyday dress or romper with this playful shade.
- Coral: Elevate anything black-and-white striped with this sophisticated color.
Each Big Mala necklace is on a 30" gold-plated steel chain. Two wooden beads balance above each side of the nylon silk tassel, which adds another 1.5." These components add up to a work of art that you feel honored to have around your neck--and as a part of your life.
about the maker
After stalking Caitie's Instagram feed for about six months, I reached out to see if she had any interest guest writing our style article in the magazine. Working with her was such a genuine, fulfilling experience that I then asked her to become a regular contributor for the next series. When she said yes to that, I couldn't help but confess to her that we were opening a marketplace and would be honored if she'd consider collaborating with us.
Since then, I've learned that Caitie's intentional living tagline isn't just about promoting an image, or even just about promoting a philosophy; as a maker, Caitie is exactly what she claims to be: intentional. She is both methodical and meticulous -- in her art, with her brand, and in her decision-making.
Receiving the big mala necklaces with cutomized tassel colors was an amazing experience -- as was wearing one of them for an entire weekend! But the real bonus of this collaboration has been my discovery of another female entrepreneur with standards as rigorous as my own. In wearing this necklace, you're not just supporting a trustworthy and heartfelt brand, but the woman behind it as well!
