Hindu Deity Range, Necklets
I cannot claim to have made these gorgeous Indian religious amulets, just assembled them, but I am so pleased to have finally got my hands on them at last. One of these beauties showed up in my life over a year ago and I’ve been searching since to get some more and hey presto the Universe answered.
Originally these pendant/amulet pieces are given to children threaded with black cord/silk/cotton which is for good luck, warding off bad luck. They are then kept for ‘life’ or as long as ideally told to me by a friend.
There are many modern copies of these which are photocopies with plastic over the top and there are also very beautiful but incredibly expensive antique ones, these are in the middle, being Indian silver, with glass on top of hand painted silk Hindu Deities.
The Hindu Deity range will extend further than these necklets but for now I wanted to treat you with these very slightly Boho looking Spiritual pieces.
They vary in sizes, showing here medium size and large, the smaller ones being fashioned on to malas (to come).
I would love to cover for those of you unsure which Deity you might be looking at, who they are and what they represent. Here goes….
Krishna is the god of compassion, tenderness, and love in Hinduism. He is one of the most widely revered and popular Indian divinities, worshipped as the eighth incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu and also as the supreme God in his own right
Ganesh, also known as Ganapati, is immediately recognizable as the elephant-headed god. He is the god of wisdom and learning, as well as the remover of obstacles, and consequently the sign of auspiciousness.
Kali brings the death of the go as the illusory self-centered view of reality.
She reinforces the awareness that the body is a temporary condition.
Of all the forms of Devi, She is the most compassionate because She provides moksha or liberation to Her children. She is the counterpart of Shiva the Destroyer.
They are the destroyers of unreality.
Radha Krishna are collectively known within Hinduism as the combination of both the feminine as well as the masculine aspects of God. Krishna is often referred as svayam bhagavan in Gaudiya Vaishnavism theology and Radha is Krishna’s supreme beloved.
All these pendants are placed on multi coloured necklets, lightweight and eyecatching, just right to set off these lovely pieces.
They are currently out at the shop but watch this space for more of the Hindu Deity Range, if this is catching your eye and you would like to see items before they go to shop, please message me direct: firstname.lastname@example.org
