This necklace features three beautiful Ganesha pendants hand painted by an artist based in Jaipur, Rajasthan. They are a fine example of exquisite miniature art very famous in Rajasthan. The paintings are encased in Sterling Silver pendants that have the designer hallmark stamp of 92.5 at their back.
I used chunky shell pearl beads in grey/silver and Berber spiral silver pendants to tie the whole look together. The large shell pearls bring out the grey background of the paintings and make this a stunning example of how Indian and African traditional art forms and motifs can be blended together to create a contemporary modern look.
The hook clasp is a handmade Bali silver clasp and the silver beads used in the necklace are silver plated high quality zinc beads.
Ganesha, also known as Ganapati, Vinayaka or Binayaka, is one of the most worshiped deities in the Hindu pantheon. In India, not only do Hindu sects worship him regardless of affiliations, devotion to Ganesha also extends to Jains and Buddhists.
Lord Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the Deva of intellect and wisdom. As the god of beginnings, he is honored at the start of rites and ceremonies. Ganesha is also invoked as patron of letters and learning during writing sessions.
The necklace measures approx. 18 inches from end to end and sits beautifully in an elegant spread around the neck line.
