“Love, Compassion & Buddha” Prayer Beads

2014-0215-GreatCompassion

These prayer beads feature moss agate, flat-backed pearls, bright copper and tiny hematite beads. The large wooden bead features the text of the Great Compassion Sutra in tiny characters. The bottom charm portrays Quan Yin on one side, with the Buddha blessing on the reverse. The pendant “tail” hangs from the heart-shaped bronze toggle clasp, meant to hang at the front of the piece.

This may be the only piece like this that I ever make, as I only have one more of the wooden beads and am unsure where to find more. The total length of the beaded portion is about 22″, with the pendant hanging down nearly 5″ more.
