ABOUT ZEN GARDEN COLLECTION
Zen Garden collection is inspired by minimalistic aesthetic and profound philosophy of a Zen garden. We put the main emphasis on the simple meditative beauty of the gemstones themselves: white howlite, snowflake obsidian, ocean jasper, grey and milky-white agates, lapis lazuli… Buddha statues, balancing rocks, swirl-like infinity circles, koi fish ponds and lotus flowers – all those beautiful Zen garden sights of meditation are reflected in this collection. We used hand-painted ceramic focal and hand-carved gemstone pendants to make every piece look artistic and unique. The collection features long mala necklaces, bracelets, stack bracelet sets, and short necklace malas that can be also worn as wrap bracelets.
