Handmade, free drawn (no stencils used) Ancient Wisdom Eyes of Buddha (Bodhnath temple eyes)etched pendant. I created this beautiful rustic naturally etched pendant using no chemicals onto a thick aircraft grade pure aluminium disc. The disc was sanded and polished minutely several times to achieve the desired effect and blackened with metal patina.The Pendant measures 1-3/8 inches in diameter by 1/8 inch thick (35mm x 4mm). Threaded onto a tough black braided adjustable 2mm cord. **Only one model has been made, unique creation, what you see in the photo is what you will receive.Benefits of aluminium jewelry:Aluminum is valued for its versatility and light weight. Aluminum is malleable and can be worked into detailed designs that would usually be difficult with other metals. Pros: Jewelry made with aluminum has the advantage of being nickel-free and non-reactive. Aluminum is super light weigh and doesn't tarnish. Cons: It can potentially react with people's skin. It has nothing to do with it being an inferior metal, as with most metals, the reaction is actually catalyzed by the pH of a person’s skin/sweat. Not all people will experience this.Care: Wash with soap and water, polish with jewelry cloth.***Aluminium is known as the magician's "invisibility metal". Reflects incoming energies and makes the perfect base for magic mirrors. Useful for magical protection if worn as jewelry.***Wisdom Eyes of BuddhaOften found painted on the Stupas of Tibetan Buddhism, this symbol represents the all seeing eyes of the Buddha, a symbol of the omnipresent compassion of the Bodhisattvas. The small dot depicted between the eyes represents the third eye, a symbol of spiritual awakening. The curious squiggle between the eyes is the Sanskrit numeral one, symbolizing the unity of all things.
