Carved from a single piece of wood, this droplet-shaped pendant is layered with lacquer until it gleams like a jewel. Its strong presence coordinates perfectly with sweaters and similar garments. As time passes, the lacquer will grow more translucent and shine with ever more radiant beauty. “What sacredness is here I do not know, and yet my tears flow at its blessings”--this poem by the medieval priest Saigyo describes the kind of unseen grace evoked by this pendant. An accessory to be worn as a blessing from above.
It represents the color of a young rice seedling as it grows toward the sun.I pray that the blessings of the sun will pour down on the wearer of this pendant.
