Mala dedicated to the Goddess Iemanja of Brasil
'In Brasil, Iemanja is considered the ocean's spirit. Every drop of saltwater bears her imprint and calls us back to Iemanja, our ancient mother and home. As a water elemental, Iemanja gives her followers vision, inspiration, and the ability to flow smoothly through life's torrential times.' (Patricia Telesco) This piece is made with crystals associated with the water element (and a little bit of air to represent the sea breeze!).
