Another amazing Dzi bead necklace design from Kathmandu, Nepal! This necklace features a true agate Tibetan 3-eye Dzi focal bead and an adjustable closure. It is accented with black water buffalo bone beads, carnelian, and turquoise beads. The adjustable knot comes in handy if you want to wear around your wrist. The 3-eyed Dzi represents the three stars of luck: happiness, honor and longevity. It is the bead of wealth, health, and said to bring continuous fortunes.
Carnelian promotes confidence and creativity, giving you the courage to make positive life choices. It is believed to protect the wearer from negativity and restore self-esteem and happiness. Known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage, carnelians have protected and inspired throughout history.
A note about bone beads: Tibetan nomadic life is hard, and in the cold there is little to eat. Water buffalo is a main staple in Nepal and Tibet, and when an animal is used for food or passes naturally, nothing is wasted. These amazing bone beads are handcrafted by artisans who recycle and reuse everything in daily life and spiritual practice.
