Stunning big Om sign on a beaded string with diverse handmade Indian glass beads and colourful patterned seedbeads. Many details in the string, a meditation to bead this piece.
Have a close look at the beads, the tiny tiny silver coloured beads, the black and white striped ones, the lovely dotted pieces. So many hands worked on the production of these glass pieces, so much love and concentration in all the materials.
So much patience in beading this dangle Om.
