Adornment is intentional beauty, a living, breathing mantra.
It is adorning yourself in alignment with your values and what feels true for you - what makes you feel empowered, confident, joyful, connected, creative, calm, worthy, and beautiful?
It is a practice of manifestation - you commit to being seen, and your adornments attract those with similar expressions and visions.
It is introducing meaningful, mindful, and conscious anchors in your physical environment that help you breakthrough the negative thought patterns and nurture empowering, positive ones.
As you weave adornment with intention, it becomes a spiritual practice by connecting your physical world to the spiritual and emotional worlds within.
Hey, I'm Candace, (that's me to the right of my two besties) designer and creator at My Little Mantra. I craft jewelry to adorn your journey with beautiful elements from the earth that serve as reminders to see the sacred within you and the world you inhabit. To inspire mindfulness and devotion to the present moment, soothing anxiety and fear.
I made my first mala necklace in India in 2008. What started as a wish to create and personalize my own mala necklace for meditation and adornment quickly grew into something much more powerful. I found a state of stillness in mind and body with every bead strung and every knot in between. This became a sort of creative meditation.
My interest in yoga and meditation evolved, and I returned to India seven more times to deepen my practices. I began to rediscover and reconnect with parts of myself that had been dormant for so long. My daily meditation practice gave me a renewed sense of wonder, creativity, purpose, and confidence.
I've spent the last 15 years exploring the world of the healing arts, including Herbalism, Energy healing, Crystal healing, Nutrition, Yoga, and Meditation.
My Little Mantra was born out of an inner drive to share my experience and encourage others to cultivate a mindfulness practice and coalesce all aspects of self into one connected whole.
