The pendant in this necklace is an example of the outstanding craftsmanship from Tibet. The fine detail in this Gau includes many semi precious stones. A Gau is traditionally worn around the neck to promote health and a protective talisman. Every time I attend a bead show I peer into the cases to see if there are any of these beauties. If they are in the budget I will get it. Unfortunately this lost art is making them less and less affordable. If you treat yourself to this one you wont be sorry.
