Metta is a Buddhist meditation meaning ‘Loving Kindness’ where we think and feel kindness and compassion for ourselves and others.
I wanted to bring together all the themes that are important to me SISTERHOOD, PROTECTION, I AM MAGIC, JOURNEY, OBSERVE, HOPE and combine them with the powerful symbolism of the hand.
Hands are important across continents and cultures. The hand in sculpture, art and life is seen as many things but for me they are gentle, protective, powerful and steadfast.
As a reiki therapist I see hands as a symbol of healing and I like to think that my jewellery carries with it some of that energy for the wearer.
This PROTECTION hand has been designed using the protection symbol that I developed after a trip to Marrakesh and seeing the Berber alphabet. It represents the strength that can be drawn from protection. The chevrons are pulling the energy required towards the wearer, they are on the ring finger as this finger is seen as the finger of confidence, self esteem and an increase in authority. The three lines on the upper hand are in the area of the palm where the intuition line can be found.
These pendants are hammered, hand punched and made extra special by a silver plated or gold plated finish. They measure 5cm and are hung on a meter long cord, so can be born short as a choker or longer.
METTA Hand Necklaces come with a beautiful coloured vegan faux suede cord.

They come in a Stuff Made From Things gift box with an affirmation card that you can stick on your mirror or in your purse as a little reminder of the direction you are going in. These necklaces also make lovely, positive gifts for special friends.
Each necklace is made to order and will take a couple of days
