Philip's Water Dragon Mala - Custom/Sold Keiki Mala for Danijela R. This mala was created to provide a source of calm energy and to help focus during times of heightened emotions. I found this lovely chrysoprase guru stone at my local shop @beadithawaii and knew it was destined for this mala. It has a lovely natural depression in the flat surface, so it adapts well as a "worry stone" and is really wonderful to hold and feel. I used chrysoprase in the mala as well as lapis lazuli, howlite, black onyx and matte lapis in chrysocolla. I hope this mala brings great joy and peace to the young man it is destined for.
Upon revealing the final piece to his mother, she said "it reminds me of a water dragon." I firmly believe that things reveal themselves to us like this even in our own art. So, I looked up the power of the water dragon and it was simply perfect:
The Water Dragon brings connection, depth and passion. The water dragon as power animal brings memories and wishes, perhaps long forgotten yet hidden, to the fore. By squaring up with painful past experiences, a sense of peace and balance can be achieved in our lives. The water dragon will give you the courage and compassion in this challenge. 💙💚💙
