Jewelry is so often associated with vanity or sensual pleasure; but one of jewelry's most significant reasons for being is spiritual. Forms depicting symbols of the divine bring us into the realm of connectedness or mindfulness of the world beyond the physical. They cloak the believer with protection, a constant reminder that our efforts are buttressed by powers beyond the material.
Our collection of Thai Buddhas and Filipino anting-antings is built around castings in sterling silver from orignal antiques. The originals are castings themselves, most often in brass. So we are continuing a long tradition.
