Himalayan Heart of Conch and Glass Pendant
Himalayan heart of conch pendant and beads, combined with handmade powder glass strung on knotted leather.
The conch shell is one of the eight auspicious symbols in Buddhism, representing the truth of Buddha's teachings. As the shell spirals to the right, it directs one to follow the righteous path.
Accented with handmade powder glass beads formed from recycled glass. The necklace is finished with an elongated antique agate bead which has been cut to reveal a natural protective "eye" within its banding.
