Tibetan bead clip on charm.'dzi /zee bead'. Brown. Ceramic. Sterling silver 925.


This is a Tibetan bead clip-on charm.

The bead is ceramic. I bought it from a Tibetan trader on the side of the road in India at the Dalai Lama's teachings in Bodhgaya who had brought it down from Tibet where it was made. It is a new bead which is in the style of the famous antique Tibetan dZi (zee) beads. (Of course it is not a real dZi bead, which cost thousands of pounds each).

I have made it into a charm by adding the sterling silver wire inside, and the sterling silver lobster clasp.

The bead is 1.5 cm long. The charm 3.5 cm long, including the clasp.

I have designed this charm and made it with my own hands. I have been making my living exclusively from designing and making jewellery for 9 years. I travel every year to seek out old and tribal silver from Asia and India along with semi-precious stones. Back at home in Brighton, England, I make these loose pieces up into beautiful and unusual jewellery.

Every item will be sent beautifully packaged in a cotton gift bag made especially for me by a women's self help group in India.
