This necklace features a hand crafted pendant of a Quan Yin Buddha in fine silver. She is a one of kind creation made of fine silver clay. When fired the clay becomes .999 silver, which is more pure than sterling silver. She has been given a light patina in bluish green tones which goes wonderfully with the beautiful blue aqua terra jasper that accompany her. All other metal components are sterling silver, including the hammered pendant suspender and the clasp. Aqua terra jasper is a very earthy stone... the splashes of blue look like little bodies of water on the surface of a planet giving the stones a very celestial feel. Fitting companions for a Goddess :)
What was your inspiration?
I've always felt inspired by images of various Buddhas, and in particular images of Quan Yin. I wanted to create something that would represent her beauty and her connection with the earth. Using aqua terra jasper felt like a nice celestial pairing with this inspirational Goddess
