Shakyamuni Buddha Necklace, Rustic Meditation Yoga Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The MEDITATION Shakyamuni Buddha pendant necklace is perfect for the woman who meditates, takes yoga or just loves one of a kind jewelry.  The meaningful, one of a kind necklace features a rustic brass Shakyamuni Buddha pendant, earthy matte tube beads, old world striped seed beads and copper.  The peaceful looking Fair Trade Buddha pendant was artisan handmade from brass in a small village in Thailand.  The brass was darkened and then given a rich seafoam blue green patina to bring out the incredible detail of the meditating Buddha, the platform he sits on and the curved leafed arch around him.  It was then polished so that the raised areas glow with the rich color of the shiny brass.  The pendant is two sided with the Buddha is on the front side. On the back, which has a dark patina, is an inscribed Buddhist unalome, a symbol that represents the path to enlightenment.  
To perfectly highlight the Buddha pendant, Czech glass tubes and striped beads were used to provide even more rustic charm.  The matte finish tube beads are a great mix of earthy colors including various shades of green, dark brown and mustard yellow.  To create an aged look to the beads, a mottled medium brown Picasso finish was added.  Between each tube beads are found shiny Czech glass seed beads with an old word Picasso finish to mimic antique trade beads from hundreds of years ago.  Most have stripes, but not all.  Small copper beads separate each bead and add a lovely glow.  A copper toggle clasp with a patina finishes the necklace securely.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the MEDITATION necklace was created for the woman who adores wearing unique, spiritual jewelry.

Shakyamuni is the historical Buddha, also known as Siddhartha Gautama, an enlightened one, and is known for his teachings of peace and compassion.  Brass is said to help develop strength of spirit.  Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.


The meaningful MEDITATION Shakyamuni Buddha pendant necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
