Creating Malas and More For a Higher Power




Intention and meditation have always been the cornerstone of Chicago area company Made As Intended. Now, with the introduction of its Sacred Collection, the company has expanded to include Blessing Bracelets and the Mala Project, a community that supports people deepening in the I AM presence through meditation and prayer.

        The Sacred Collection, by Made As Intended, features modern mala bracelets and wraps that bring being intentional and meditation to retail boutiques. Dawn Sprong states, “Faith stepped in,” and she found herself at the Merchandise Mart delivering malas to buyers at a wholesale show.

        “All our gemstone malas are tagged with an I AM intention or mantra that brings a higher idea of what is possible for the wearer,” adds Sprong.
