Wire wrapping is a genre of jewelry, which requires pliable wire to be shaped into each piece. As a piece progresses the wire hardens and is sometimes hammered to further strengthen a piece. It will retain its shape, however, if you try to bend it or it gets squished, it will bend. Do not place your wire wrapped jewelry in a purse or pocket.
“Buddha” means “one who is awake.” The Buddha who lived 2,600 years ago was not a god. He was an ordinary person, named Siddhartha Gautama, whose profound insights inspired the world. Buddhism teaches that we all live in a fog of illusions created by mistaken perceptions and “impurities” — hate, greed, ignorance. A buddha is one who is freed from the fog.
