This clay bead has been hand formed by me, dried and carved with the Tzolk'in Mayan Glyph for BEN then fired for several hours, glazed and fired once again in the kiln.
Threaded onto a strong adjustable 2mm black braided cord. The pendant measures 1-1/2" long by 1-1/8" wide by 3/16" thick ( 40mm x 30mm x 4mm).
