Through my time at the local farmers markets I get to learn first hand the types of services that are valuable to my customers. I am pleased to offer these services to you, and if there is something else you need please do ask me. I am happy to accommodate whenever possible. 

Size Adjustments

I am able to resize most items. For ease of listing, I offer the most common sizing for Women's and Men's designs online. Adjusting to smaller is always possible, and adjusting larger is almost always possible. If I have the beads in stock I can just add whatever is needed. If I do not, I may be able to offer it at a later date, or make a small customization with a different bead added. 


How to Measure 

To figure out your ideal bracelet size, use a soft measuring tape and measure the place around your wrist where you want the bracelet to sit. Make sure the position is comfortable and not too tight. Beads are round and hard so if the bracelet sits too tight, it may be uncomfortable. 

If you do not have a soft tape measure, you can just use a string and pinch the ends together exactly how you would with a soft tape measure. Mark the location where the ends meet and then you can use a hard ruler to measure the length of string.
 

Gift Wrapping and Packaging

All Empress Mala Bracelets come in a beautiful jewelry box with ribbon and are gift presentable ready. Additional wrapping can also be done, and I can add a gift note if you are forwarding to someone. Please email me to let me know you would like this option. 

At the Farmers Markets, I will be offering gift wrapping during the holidays as well. 

 

Custom Design Options

Want a stone you don't see here? Please contact me and I can do a custom order for you. I am also happy to help you design a unique bracelet with any of the stones I do have available. Many customers like to make small design adjustments to existing designs, or to swap out one stone for another. If there is a price difference I will discuss with you ahead of time. 

Please see below for custom fine jewelry options for gold, gold filled and sterling silver options. 

Fine Jewelry

I love working with precious metals and do include them with some of my designs. If you wish to add a Solid Gold 14 Karat Bead, 14K Gold Filled, 14K Gold Plated, Gold Vermeil, Rose Gold Filled, Sterling Silver, I am happy to add that to your purchase. In some cases this may extend the processing time. For solid gold pieces I may require you to pre purchase or place a deposit. I am very happy to provide this service though. 

Engraving

Another option for Fine Jewelry is the addition of a small gold or silver charm with personalized engravings. I work with local jewellers who are able to provide engraving services to me. Please contact me with your inquires and I can let you know pricing. I would require pre payment for the charm + engraving services and then you can purchase your bracelet separately. Please allow for slightly longer processing time. Eventually, I will have engraving services in-house which will allow for quick processing.

Men's, Women's and Unisex

My designs are inclusive wether you prefer more masculine, feminine or neutral styles. They are for everyBODY.

The concept of Empress Mala Designs was jewelry for all of our 'Inner Empresses', and with the Divine Feminine Energy as my inspiration, I do also create designs for men and have a section dedicated to Men's Favourites. Please do not feel restricted to shop in one category or the other. Men's styles are made larger at 7.5" but I can accommodate size requests. 

 

Pop Up Shops

If you wish to see Empress Mala Designs in person, I am currently doing Pop-Up Shops at the Ambleside and Burnaby Farmers Markets. I will also be participating in Winter and Christmas Markets in Burnaby, and other locations to be determined. 

This is not only a great opportunity to shop in person and see all of the designs up close, but a great way to get items modified or customized on the spot. I can also do local pickups at the Farmers Market locations/dates for local online orders that do not qualify for free shipping
