These white brass ghau style prayer pendants hail from Nepal. This pendant is worn to carry a special object whether written words or other pieces of juju close to your body. As you can see in the photos one of the sides opens up, where traditionally the wearer would carry an affirmation, prayer, photo, or memory. The main vessel part measures approximately 1.5" deep.
Pendant measure 2" long x 1/2" wide. Pendant bail is about 5mm wide, large enough for a leather or other type of cord.

I travel to Nepal to hand-select all of my Nepali jewelry making supplies. I work with small-scale, family-run businesses, most of whom have been crafting these pieces for generations. I sit in the tiny little shoebox of a shop and look at their new designs, while sipping tea, and choose my favorites. It's pretty magical. Purchasing these goods help me support them in their handmade, traditional craft.
A portion of all WSW sales will be donated to The Compassion Collective, which works to feed, clothe, shelter, and save our refugee and homeless sisters, brothers, and children in the US and worldwide.
