This is a listing for ONE  Tibetan prayer wheel bead in mixed metals: copper and both white and gold brass set with four tiny coral gemstone cabochons. The body of the bead is copper with brass and silver overlay details and some antiquing. The little red coral cabochons are glued into white brass bezels on opposite sides of the bead with the text rows in between. The ends of the bead are decorated with gold lotus designs. There is a 2+ mm hole in each end of the bead which would benefit from filing with a metal file and could be made larger as well. The two rows of raised Tibetan script is gold brass. This bead is handmade by Tibetan craftsmen living in Northern India. These are healing stones and metals. See the metaphysical attributes below.
This is a beautiful ethnic, tribal and metaphysical component ready for your next jewelry making project or for your ethnic, tribal bead collection. The writing on the bead is Tibetan script of the mantra of Chenrezig. This prayer is commonly called: Om Mani Padme Hum. This is the Tibetan form: Om Mani Padme Hung. It is said that saying the mantra aloud, spinning the prayer wheel, and viewing the script all have the same effect. This prayer evoked blessings and compassion, and it is not necessary to be an initiate of Buddhism to practice this prayer. The text is mirrored so that it is right side up no matter how you decide to present it. These beads are usually suspended vertically so they can be spun on whatever spindle you choose. Spinning the bead, gazing at the mantra and saying the mantra aloud have the same effect. Pretty cool, those Tibetans!
These beads are handmade and as close to identical as can be expected. In the spirit of full disclosure, which we are all about here at ForetTwo, one of the beads is a little different on one end. See if you can spot it in the fifth photograph below. There are two beads available at the time of this listing. If you would like both of them, the second bead will be discounted by 10% as I always do on orders of multiples, and there will be no increase in shipping and insurance fees. Please message me if you wish to purchase both of these little wonders. I will correct the price and send you a RESERVED FOR link. Reserved listings are good for 24 hours only.
