Custom Remake Mala
Custom Remake Mala
Calling all Zen Gems addicts!
Do you have a handful of Zen Gems bracelets no longer getting any love? Looking for that creative way to repurpose them into a new piece with meaning?
We are now offering a new custom service — the custom remake mala! Send us the bracelets you are no longer wearing, allow us to work our intuitive magic on them and transform them into a new hand knotted mala!
For a 72 bead mala — please provide us with 5 Zen Gems bracelets (8mm bead size)
For a 108 bead mala - please provide us with 7 Zen Gems bracelets (8mm bead size) OR 5 bracelets (6mm bead size). If you want to mix 6 and 8mm bead size bracelets, send a combo of 6-7 bracelets!
Pricing covers basic re-stringing and new pendant or guru bead and handmade tassel. If additional spacers are requested, additional fees ($5-10) may apply.
Please note we ONLY work with Zen Gems creations. It is suggested that you send a picture to us with the pieces you are looking to use in this process.
This custom process is an intuitive one. You can offer some feedback on the layout (ie more mmiscellaneous or more color blocked), but I will use my intuition, discretion, and design knowledge to create your new remake accordingly. If you wish for a more interactive custom process, please connect with me privately about a fully custom piece.
If additional beads are leftover, we can re string them into a matching bracelet to your new mala for an additional $5. Otherwise, they will be returned to you with your new piece. (Zen Gems tip: I’ve often placed my miscellaneous beads into the soil of my house plants or into my flower beds as an offering back to the earth).

For the most accurate sizing, measure your wrist snug with a measuring tape and add 1 inch in order to get your "bracelet size". This refers to the strung length of your bracelet (please note the beads take up the inner diameter, hence why I suggest adding an inch so it's not too tight). Ie: if your wrist measures 6", it is recomended you select the 7" bracelet.

Gemstone pieces are considered fine pieces of jewelry. Crystals and gemstones should be treated with care, avoid getting them wet or exposing to extreme heat or cold - this can damage the crystals and fade their coloring. Given their energetic properties, charge your crystals in the windowsill during the full moon, + most importantly, wear your piece with INTENTION!
Stainless steel components + layering pieces are silver, gold or rose gold plated. These metals wear incredibly well, even when worn daily. In time, an antiquing effect known as patina may show its love and wear, and does not harm the piece of jewelry. Plated hematite spacers are used in gemstone jewelry. Certain ph levels in one’s skin may cause this natural patina effect to occur quicker in these accents but does not affect the crystals themselves.
