Product Details:

I made Lady of 1,000 Arms with a petite piece of hand carved white Jade.  To compliment the Jade I used natural emerald beads with Bali sterling silver bead caps, connector, and toggle.  This petite piece is approximately 20" and the pendant adds another 3.

Legends of Jade
:Ancient people thought that wearing jade would increase body strength and add longevity. It was thought that jade would protect the kidneys, live, spleen, heart, larynx, thymus, and thyroid. Jade is an ancient symbol of love and virtue.

Symbolic energy and beauty, the traditional and the modern are combined in jade in a particularly harmonious way. In gemstone therapy it is said that jade stimulates creativity and mental agility while having a balancing and harmonizing effect. This beautiful gemstone is said to bring you joy, vivacity and happiness, all at the same time.


Guanyin and the Thousand ArmsOne Buddhist legend from the Complete Tale of Guanyin and the Southern Seas (Chinese: 南海觀音全撰; pinyin: Nánhǎi Guānyīn Quánzhuàn) presents Guanyin as vowing to never rest until she had freed all sentient beings from the samsara or reincarnation. Despite strenuous effort, she realised that there were still many unhappy beings yet to be saved. After struggling to comprehend the needs of so many, her head split into eleven pieces. The buddha Amitabha, upon seeing her plight, gave her eleven heads to help her hear the cries of those who are suffering. Upon hearing these cries and comprehending them, Avalokitesvara attempted to reach out to all those who needed aid, but found that her two arms shattered into pieces. Once more, Amitabha came to her aid and appointed her a thousand arms to let her reach out to those in need. Many Himalayan versions of the tale include eight arms with which Avalokitesvara skillfully upholds the Dharma, each possessing its own particular implement, while more Chinese-specific versions give varying accounts of this number.
