Our Story

Our story

Born from a journey of self-discovering and chasing my dreams, Mala Moonlight was created to remind you that just as the moon is cyclic, life is too and in moments of darkness, meditation can show you the way to find the light.

We believe in the power of meditation and aromatherapy to enhance your well-being. Mala beads have been used for centuries as a tool for meditation. You can use these beads to promote your mindfulness practice and throughout the day to inspire and brighten up your day.

Mala Moonlight is a small batch female-owned handcraft studio. I use high-quality materials and all our products are handmade with great attention to detail in my home studio.

Our goal is to inspire you to manifest your dream life, live life with intention and purpose.


Meet the maker

Hello! I'm Lela, the hands and soul behind Mala Moonlight. I grew up in sunny Venezuela and moved to London in 2014. I have enjoyed painting and creating since I can remember.  I love the first cup of coffee in the morning, doing ashtanga yoga, jogging outdoors, taking photos of flowers and nature, travelling, summer, and the ocean.  

My story

Making jewellery is something that I always enjoyed. Back at uni, I had a brand called Lela Designs, I made bracelets, key holders and hair accessories. Sadly, stopped creating when I got busy with finding a job, work and adulthood life. 

In 2018, I made my first mala necklace for my meditation practice and this simple action opened a magical world for me! I reconnected with my crafty and soul maker. Creating is where I happily connect with my inner child.

Meditation helped me during difficult times in my life. I started to believe more in myself and trust my intuition. This is a practice I pursue every day for the endless benefits it brings to my life.

Around the same time, I started to shift my professional career, to one aligned with my dreams and values. Hence, Mala Moonlight was born.

Making jewellery has become a form of meditation to me – threading and knotting beads has a way of bringing me into the present moment. I absolutely love making and creating beautiful lifetime pieces, it gives me so much joy and peace.
