How we got started
Hi there! My name is Kate Giglio, and I am the founder and maker at Mind's Eye Mala. I started making mala beads here in Nova Scotia for the graduates of my yoga studio's first Yoga Teacher Training program in 2017. After they graduated, mala beads in hand, I couldn't stop beading. Making mala beads expanded into designing bracelets and other creative pieces like charms, and essential oil diffusers for the car, which expanded into leading workshops on everything from making your own mala beads to learning how to decorate cookies!
I love dogs and own three—an 8-year old Weimereiner mix named Baxter (shown left) plus two American Bulldog puppies named Gronk and Brady. When I'm not designing jewelry or beading away, you can find me with my dogs, spending time with my husband, or practicing or teaching yoga at Supernova Power Yoga!
Gemstone energy is fascinating. I believe the energies they carry are real and impact each of us differently. Simply understanding the different meanings and uses can greatly affect how you see yourself and the world around you. Its a beautiful thing.
