Handmade, free drawn (no stencils used) of the ancient Mayan Glyph "Caban" 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.***Caban Mayan Glyph:This ancient Mayan symbol is representative of the Earth keeper who sanctifies the Earth and venerates all life that exists on it. Reminding everyone of the larger forces that are behind all creation, this Earth symbol represents movement, transition and synchronization. It motivates people to be patient, observant and flexible. It also symbolizes the synergistic working of destiny that brings everyone together for shared spiritual intents. Focusing on the Caban symbol helps one become centered and experience spiritual unfolding.
