Om is an ancient Sanskrit mystical and sacred syllable that originated from Hinduism. Om is considered by Buddhists to be the first sound ever uttered out loud in the newly created universe. The “Om, Star, Amethyst Crystal” pendant shows the Om symbol that sits next to an amethyst (medium purple color - looks darker in photo) crystal point. Both jewelry findings are sterling silver. The Om symbol and the crystal gently lay on top of an aqua hand-painted/sculpted sun star shape with the star cut out in the center of the sun. The clay shape is heat-cured and finished with a coat of acrylic varnish to protect it, but I would suggest not getting it wet. The clay shaped star measures 1.5”x1.5”. The necklace part of this piece is a sterling silver, high-quality 2mm ball chain made using fine German and Italian chain-making machinery. The chain is 18” long (9” when the clasp is closed). Each hand-made piece of jewelry will be sent in a small silver box that comes in a pretty organza drawstring gift satchel.
