The buddhist rosary, Mala, is used for counting the number of times the Mantra is recited.

This is a 108 beads wrist mala, if you count the numbers there are actually 109 beads including the center Guru bead.  The Guru bead symbolizes the Guru from whom one has received the mantra being recited.  The 108 beads represented the 108 earthly desires; the 6 senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, and consciousness) multiplied by 3 reactions (positive, negative, or indifference) making 18 “feelings.” Each of these feelings can be either “attached to pleasure or detached from pleasure” making 36 “passions”, each of which may be manifested in the past, present, or future.

 The art of filigree has been well established, especially in Beijing where the imperial jewellery and even hat gear employed the technique of filigree.

The start of the craft probably began as early as the Spring and Autumn period, when technology made it possible to produce fine gold and silver strings to be embedded into the bronze ware.  Different techniques were developed making it possible to create delicate jewellery twisting and turning precious gold and silver threads into beautiful motifs.

 A pendant carving of the Buddha’s hand fruit (Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis).  The shape of this finger like citrus fruit resemble the Buddha’s mundra and often used as an offering in the Buddhist temple, its also a symbol of happiness, longevity and fortune.

The natural sculptural shape of the Buddha’s hand fruit also made it a popular carving subject.

The fruit also gives a slight citrus aroma, when placed in a room its fragrance will refresh the entire space.
