The Pali word metta means loving kindness, an unconditional love and empathy that accepts all living things. The metta prayer resonates not only with those who practice Buddhism but with those of us who love "all beings", animals, as well as people. It is adorned with a perfect lotus or padma, one of the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism. Religious jewelry designer pendants by Laurel Elliott.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
Laurel Elliott's Pi Disc is a modern interpretation of the ancient Chinese form of a circle within a circle, an enduring symbol of nobility, purity, constancy and eternity. The circle having no end is itself a symbol of infinity. Its classic shape looks beautiful when worn, moving easily from day to night. The chain can be knotted on the disc or simply slipped though the open circle providing an additional 2" in length. It also can be used without a chain as a touchstone or keepsake for the pocket, desk or nightstand.
