The EarthBound Story
My name is Petra and I am EarthBound is my line of 108 Malas and Yoga Jewelry. I created it seven years ago to bring healing energy and beauty into the world. Everything you see in my web shop is handmade by me. All my 108 Malas are hand-knotted and my gemstone bracelets are handmade with love.
I work with semi-precise gemstones, gemstones, sandalwood beads and rudraksha seeds from India. I am a vegan so there for all my jewelry is as well (I work with nylon cord and faux silk tassels). Most of my amulets, charms and pendants are from Thailand, India and Turkey. I personally pick everything out to make sure it not only is high quality, but also has the right healing energy. And all my 108 Malas are unique and one of a kind - just like you! When a 108 Mala or a Bracelets is done I always put it on my altar and have a small ceremony. I light incense or sage, I play my Tibetan singing bowl, put it on my Selenite plate to cleanse its energy and then sit in meditation for a few minutes. Just to send it off to you with the greatest energy and love possible.
I don’t have a physical store location, so everything is made from my house in my bead room/yoga studio/meditation room. I sell my jewelry here in my web shop (yes, I ship internationally) and I also go to different trade shows, yoga festivals, trunk shows and pop up stores. If you want me to come to your store, yoga studio or event just contact me and let’s set something up! To see my upcoming events and festivals click here.
Gemstones have different healing properties, but I always say just choose a mala or bracelet that speaks to you and reflects your personal energy. A mala can be used as a tool in your meditation practice, to give you healing energy or you can just wear it as an earthy accessory and as a constant reminder to yourself to stay present and be mindful in your daily life.

Besides being a business owner and a jewelry designer, I am also an E-RYT 500 Yoga Teacher and Meditation Teacher. I have been practicing yoga since 1999 and I’ve been a teaching yoga and meditation for about 10 years. I come from a traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga background, but now practice and teach Vinyasa Yoga. I teach at The Yoga Shop of West Hartford and The Yoga Shop of Glastonbury in Connecticut. Come take a class with me (first class is always free). Check out my schedule here.
