I call this “my smirking Buddha” necklace, and couldn’t wait to share it with you. When you take a good look at his face, it looks like he is smirking. I think he has a secret in his little golden temple, and just had to take him home with me. This is another piece that comes from the Estate case at Harmony Jewellers. The Buddha is made of what I consider to be a nice piece of Green Jade and the bail of the necklace was changed to have it match the style of his temple. The casing that the Buddha sits in, is spectacular and detailed. I always smile when I wear this piece.
“Smirking” Buddha Pendant
Never would I consider taking this piece apart to make something new. It’s different and unique all on it’s own. I want to be more like Buddha and achieve enlightenment through meditation. According to www.aboutbuddha.org – “Every living being has the same basic wish – to be happy and to avoid suffering. Even newborn babies, animals, and insects have this wish. Wouldn’t the world be a wonderful place if only this one wish was granted to all? No wonder my Buddha is smirking, he knows a huge secret! I love this piece and it is going to stay exactly like it is.
I find that in todays world we are all moving too fast and not stopping to really enjoy all the things that are around us. When I wear this necklace, I am in a happy place. It goes with all the nice bright colours of summer and the warm earth tones of fall. This piece is very versitle and a great accessory to any outfit. I don’t know why, but I alway feel great when wearing it. Maybe there is some truth to the meaning of Jade. According to www.jademeaning.com , jade is a special stone that is believed to promote wisdom, balance, and peace. Jade is a prehistoric stone, that encourages our consciousness to increase at a higher level. Oh well, whatever the meaning, I love my necklace.
