Unique and extremely personal jewellery combinations can be created with the beautifully-detailed ‘Wheel of Karma’ pendant and the 72 Karma Beads.  With a focus on sterling silver beads, customers can choose intricate beads with floral filigrees, or focus on semi precious stone materials like white jade or quartz.
