Wolf and Deer Medicine Necklace-Sold
Made with a small piece of wolf fur and feathers, deer leather and small round Tibetan agate beads that were sold to me as Dzi beads, however I would say that these beads are in the Dzi bead style only in that they are made of agate and have the same small eyes in them, as traditional Dzi beads are long cylinders.
This piece is flanked on both sides are two stunning fiery Carnelian beads and comes in a leather pouch.
Agate: This stone inspires creativity, and provides protection from negative environmental influences or people who do not support us on our life's path. Agate has a deep clear energy that facilitates the user to also get clear on their path and supports them as they follow their passions and dreams.
Carnelian: is a Fire element stone and there fore great for those wishing to re-kindle their passion. This can be passion for a loved one but also passion for a creative project or life path that has been waiting in the side lines for too long. Carnelian assists us to take action in manifesting our life goals and deepest dreams. It helps it’s user to overcome fear by providing strong protection.
The Origin of Dzi Bead
The dzi bead is one of the most mysterious of all the beads known to human being today. Numerous attempts to trace back to their source yield fruitlessly although many dzi beads have been passed down from generations to generations. They exist seemingly in isolation, as if snapped from a chain, with no links to their past. It is unclear to many bead scholars the exact origin of dzi bead, why, when and how it was manufactured. The fact is these tiny stone beads patterned with mystical eyes are one of the most treasured beads in the world today. The Tibetans believe the dzi beads are the precious jewels with supernatural origin.
There are many myths and legends in Tibet describing the origin of the bead. Among the many myths and legends that follow the dzi, the main belief is that the gods created them. The Tibetan theorized divine origin rendered the dzi to be precious and powerful talismans. Most Tibetans will not let go of it because this may cause bad luck to them. In addition, the rarity of the bead makes them as valuable as diamonds in Tibet.
