Be the Change Necklace
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.- Mahatma Gandhi
An inspiring quote in a tangible reminder to have close to your heart and mind.
Each necklace is handcrafted by one artist. No two are exactly alike.
Sterling silver, hand-stamped charm, pink freshwater pearl, (October), and silver plated teeny elephant.
The chain is 22", sterling silver and adjustable. Change the length everyday and layer it with other pieces.
Elephants may have garnered their reputation for magic powers from a number of sources. They are large and powerful, intelligent, useful, and long-lived and so have become a symbols of strength, wisdom, happiness, and longevity. They are religious symbols in the Hindu faith. The birth of Buddha was announced by a white elephant and Ganesha is an elephant-headed god of wisdom and path-clearing. Chinese Buddhists believe in a folklore being (Guan Yin) who dresses in white and rides an elephant. Guan Yin helps in time of need and represents charity and pity. The Chinese also have a saying that equates to happiness: "To ride an elephant." In Sri Lanka, crawling under an elephant's belly protects you from "bad planetary effects" and the evil eye while driving away fears.
**If you choose to add a birthstone/gemstone to your necklace, as shown in the pictures, you can select the birth month or none for no birthstone. If you'd like the pink pearl shown, please choose October.
