(1.8cm tall) Here is a sweet, loving, and happy little Shinto Jizo pendant to keep you company through your days. He's a wonderful little friend who can go almost anywhere!
He is strung on a strong, natural flax cord with an adjustable, sliding knot closure, and he hangs by a fireproof metal loop that's very, very secure. The flax itself is handspun and naturally waxed. The pendant is made of stoneware, glazed in non-toxic glaze, and raku fired with natural wood shavings for the amazing gifts of smoke and flame. Jizo is 1.8cm tall, and the metal loop adds another 0.4cm. The full length of the necklace from back of next to bottom of Jizo is 32.5cm, but of course you can adjust it shorter.
**Please note that the knots in the flax cord are sealed with natural, ecological latex glue. If you have a latex allergy, please contact me before you place your order, and I will make another cord sealed with synthetic glue for you.**
Jizo is a Japanese Shinto spirit, a kami who found his way to Japan through Buddhism. He is a guardian of women, children, and travellers; he comforts us through grief and bereavement.
Through my work, I hope to bring a little nature, peace, and gentleness into the world. I make all of my pieces entirely by hand with only non-toxic material.
