Golden sheen obsidian is manifesting and protective. A stone of deep inner work, this one can help you tap into your true calling.
Our darkest months, winter can remind us there's great depth and deep work available to us in that darkness. Chosen for its resemblance to the dark night sky, golden sheen obsidian helps us do that deep work and offers sweet protection.
Pictured on the pendant is the walking Buddha, signifying the time the Buddha spent after his enlightenment, walking amongst the people, teaching the middle way. When the walking Buddha imagery first appeared in 13th century Thailand, it was considered quite radical. Up until this point, the Buddha had always been depicted seated in meditation or standing, shown to have god-like and king-like qualities. The walking Buddha was revolutionary in that it emphasized his more human qualities. His right hand is raised in the Abhaya mudra, a gesture of reassurance. It serves as a beautiful reminder that the divine is no so very far away.
Made of striking golden sheen obsidian and a brass walking Buddha pendant, this limited edition handknotted mini mala offers protection and reassurance.
golden sheen obsidian: manifesting + protection + true calling
The Magic of Winter collection is inspired by icy, muted hues, nourishing energies, and quiet introspection. This winter has me especially enchanted. I find myself diving deep into this restful energy. Crisp mornings and warm beverages. Visioning, prior to the plotting and the planning, that slow percolation. Nesting and resting. Reading just for fun. Staring out the window. This collection was born in these small, sweet, nourishing moments.
Each piece is handcrafted with love to remind you of the magic within you + all around you.
