This one-of-a-kind piece unexpectedly combines my love of Altered Barbie with my connection to the Jewel of the Lotus, Quan Yin - the Goddess of Compassion.

This two-sided, quirky, but spiritual assemblage necklace starts with a red heart-shaped bead sitting atop two enameled cloisonne bead caps – probably from India – and from these, two Barbie hands emerge to gently embrace Quan Yin. The clear glass bead above the beautiful head symbolizes the opening of the crown chakra, drawing down healing light energy.

Beneath the beautiful 2-sided molded plastic Buddha head is an assemblage of jewelry pieces arranged to symbolize the lotus, which is the symbol for spiritual awakening. Below that is a beautiful velvet-red carved rondelle bead - probably carnelian. Finishing the piece & giving it some movement is a faceted crystal bead sitting above a filigree bead cap, dangling from which is a simple tassel made from a silver chain.

Overall length: 6”
Width: 1 ½”
Buddha Bead: 1 1/8” L
Cord length: 22”

The cord is a brown braided cord with a Chinese knot to symbolize eternity.

I will package this in a re-purposed gift box. I found a stash of rectangular dead stock gift boxes, so I have added a decorative button & ribbon to form a cute & convenient closure. Please check the photos in other listings for a representative photo of these signature repurposed boxes. The exact box will vary.
