SOLD: Rajasthan Miniature Painting Lakshmi Wealth Goddess Footprint Necklace

This necklace features a small hand painted silver pendant that illustrates the sacred symbol of Goddess Lakshmi's feet.

In Indian religious scriptures, Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and prosperity and it is believed that wherever she goes, there is abundance and wealth. These foot print symbols are hence considered pious and fortifying and every year during the Diwali festival, they are worn or drawn in Indian homes to invite the Goddess into their lives.

The blue-grey color used in the pendant was so unique that I spent weeks scouring bead stores (and looking up online) for the color matching beads that added to and not took away from (yes, some beads are known to do that :)) the beauty that this little pendant is. And imagine my joy when at the end of three weeks I ran into an exact match in the Crystals section at my local bead store! The joy!

I added orange lampwork glass beads to the crystals to bring out the colors of the feet.
The necklace is approx. 17 inches long so it sits very close to the clavicle. The metal beads used through the length of the necklace are a combination of silver plated zinc and Bali silver beads. A Bali silver clasp completes the look.
