A MOST Auspicious Hand of Buddha focal bead with the ॐ (Om) Insignia at the knuckle of each finger and the Sacred Lotus Blossom at the wrist. The inside of the hand is continued with highly detailed Art Nouveau-esque floral work.
Length of bead: 4" from top of ample bale to finger tip

The possibilities for this bead are absolutely ENDLESS and only limited by your imagination!! I can see it being strung with turquoise,coral and brass filigree/repousse beads or simply strung with chunks of crystals......or a brass torq for simplicity.
Meaning of ॐ
Om Mani Padme Hum
According to the Buddhism, the mantra (prayer) "Om Mani Padme Hum" literally translates as "hail to the jewel in the lotus". It is the sacred Sanskrit prayer in Tibetan Buddhism. Recitation of this mantra expresses the longing for Nirvana (liberation) for the sake of all sentient beings.
The Lotus (padma): The lotus refers to many aspects of the path, as it grows from the mud (samsara), up through muddy water it appears clean on the surface (purification), and finally produces a beautiful flower (enlightenment). The white blossom represents purity, the stem stands for the practice of Buddhist teachings which raise the mind above the (mud of) worldly existence, and gives rise to purity of mind. An open blossom signifies full enlightenment; a closed blossom signifies the potential for enlightenment.
