Jizo was a contemporary of Buddha and promised that he would remain on earth until everyone was finished suffering. He is holding a tiny image of a pearl with which to light the path.
I designed him to create a line of jewelry with meaning; something to wear that also feels soothing to the touch and centering to the busy mind.
This is my smallest Jizo, standing 1/2" tall. On my website, you may find 3/4" and 1" pendants. Many of the 1" pendants have Jizo carrying a precious stone. My favorite is the topaz: the stone of the seeker.
