This earthy, organic looking necklace, SHIVA'S TEAR, is made with beautifullly organic Rudraksha seeds, brown freshwater pearls, sterling silver and Thai fine silver. It is a handmade, one of a kind (OOAK) piece created by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

Six whorled Rudraksha seeds grace the front of the necklace. What interesting seeds these are with their gorgeous color and interesting, textured surface! Interspersed bewteeen the Rudraksha seeds are dark brown freshwater pearls that have a slight brick red tinge to them. Sterling silver daisy spacers and 2mm sterling silver beads "frame" the Rudraksha seeds. Rich brown freshwater pearls continue around the back of the necklace. SHIVA'S TEAR is finished with a Thai Hill Tribes handmade fine silver hook clasp.

The seeds of the Rudraksha tree, which is a large evergreen, broad-leaved tree that grows in the foothills of the Himalayas and other places, is traditionally used for prayer beads in Hinduism. Used as meditative rosaries for thousands of years by Hindus, Sikhs and Buddists, Rudraksha "malas" help to sanctify the mind, body and soul. The word "Rudraksha" is derived from "Rudra" (Shiva-the Hindu God of all living creatures) and "aksha" (eyes). When Lord Shiva opened his eyes after a long period of yoga, a Hindu legend says, because of the extreme fulfillment he felt, he shed a single tear. This one tear grew into the Rudraksha tree.

Here is the important information for SHIVA'S TEAR:

Rudraksha seeds: app. 16mm x 14mm
Brown pearls: app. 8mm
Metal: sterling silver
Length: app. 18mm/45.7 cm

SHIVA'S TEAR will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the "language" of the stones and metals.

Matching earrings seen in the second photograph can be purchased separately.

SHIVA'S TEARS is a truly, unique, one-of-a-kind necklace. A sense of calmness just seems to emanate from this gorgeous necklace :)

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The Rudraksha seeds were entrancing to me when I first saw and handlled them - so organic! I didn't know anything about the history of the seeds when I bought them and was thrilled when I did some research. Such an interesting history! I wanted to design something simple with the Rudraksha seeds and thought these brown pearls were perfect to highlight them :)
