Each Tibetan mantra pearl begins life as a white, freshwater pearl. It is hand etched in Tibet with a mantra of enlightenment: 'Om Mani Padme Hum'. The pearl is then allowed to soak in black tea for up to 3 months, taking on its warm tone and allowing the edges of the etched characters to darken and come into focus. 'Om Mani Padme Hum' translates roughly to 'Hail the jewel in the Lotus'. Well loved in Buddhist culture, this mantra can be found inscribed on rocks, roads, paths, mountain passes and the entrances to villages all over Tibet and Nepal. It is commonly believed that one who recites this mantra or keeps it close to them will be protected from misfortune and experience an inner sense of calm.
The world is not always filled with health and happiness. This week, more than ever, I'm finding that I need to focus on something positive to keep myself on track, be an optimistic leader, and embrace creativity. I keep nature in all my jewelry to calm my spirit. There are also times when we all need an extra nudge of awareness, enlightenment, and grounding, and this is when I find myself reaching for my Tibetan mantra pearls. Beautiful and subtle, these pearls have a special history and meaning that allows me to take a breath, focus my energy, and be prepared for whatever challenges await me.
In our sunny Atlanta studio, our unique designs are conceived and created by hand to make an impact. Our small team of local artists feels more like a family- we inspire one another, laugh often, and work together to make each piece unique. We’re committed to using natural materials to tell stories that are authentic- nature is never perfect, but it’s in this variation and unpredictability that we find our inspiration.
"It is not enough to create. Our process must be guided by intention: every outcome considered, each impact weighed, until the result is both a physical and spiritual representation of what is in our hearts."
We believe in the value of finding and following your passion. In 2006, we took the plunge to form this community of creativity. Mickey Lynn is a place where we can be ourselves, we can create something new every day, and, best of all, we can share our inspiration with the world through original designs and genuine connections.
When you shop small, you support your local economy and create jobs that help us to pay it forward. But your impact extends even further when you support a company that shares your values. At Mickey Lynn, we strive to make every step of our process something we can be proud of. From responsible stone sourcing to supporting fair labor standards, we know that living an authentic life isn’t just a singular decision, but hundreds of choices that add up to make a difference.
Mickey Lynn bracelets are crafted for maximum style and comfort for every wrist. If you are on the cusp between two sizes, you may select the smaller size for a tighter fit, or larger size for a looser fit, depending on your preference.
Measuring your wrist
Use a tape measure or find a strip of paper, ribbon, or cord. Wrap it around your wrist where you would normally wear the bracelet. If you are using a strip of paper, ribbon, or cord, mark the end of the strip and then measure the length against a ruler. This is your wrist size.
