Kuan Yin – goddess of kindness, mercy, love, and compassion
The Vietnamese boat people, refugees from the Vietnamese civil war, left their country often with forty people on a boat carrying no food. When they arrived, often only ten or so were left, having survived on the bodies of the fallen. When the boats were lost at sea, they would pray to Kuan Yin for guidance. Many returned with stories of seeing her white form floating over the waves. When they pointed their ships at the apparition, they found themselves sailing into safe harbors for the first time.

This bead is about 2 inches tall, and the hole runs from the top of the head to the bottom. If you are a jewelry maker, then imagine the possibilities in a necklace, with this serene bodhisattva as a central pendant, or in-line in an asymmetrical piece, with the lady to one side.

She is shipped to you from my Maryland studio, packed securely, and carried to you by Fed Ex, if you are in the US. I wrap my artworks carefully, and place them in a jewelry box, for excellent gift presentation.

If you purchase her, and don't agree with me, then return the artwork for a full refund, including your shipping costs. I'm confident that when you open your order, you'll experience the same excitement that I have for her.
