A Note from the Designer

"My Buddha is one of my most beloved pieces. He's incredibly detailed when reinterpreted as a mini pendant. I added a blue topaz gemstone flower to the Buddha's headdress to complement his energy and to symbolize compassion, love, and harmony. You can wear him alone, with any of the other charms in my collection or with enhancers like the Hamsa, Om, etc."

—Barbara Bixby

Perfectly Charming! I originally purchased this charm to put on my BB leather bracelet. I will wear him on the bracelet but I will also wear this charm on my BB necklaces. He's a hefty little piece and very well made. Unlike another reviewer, I think this charm is on the larger size but still a good size for bracelets. The amount of silver and the fabulous carving of the mother of pearl face has to be timely and expensive. I've had this little guy on my wish list for a long while and decided to make the purchase. I would love to purchase all of the Bixby pieces on my wish list all at once but one needs to pay for the mortgage! I will treasure this piece for a long time to come. 02-12-14
Mr. Right! I received my charm yesterday in the mail...he was perfect! The carving was exquisite, the topaz were brilliant blue and every detail was in place. How wonderful in something that is a square inch?! I have to politely disagree with the other reviewer...the charm is perfect size for a charm. One wouldn't want a large charm clunking around the wrist - it could become damaged. I now own the Buddha ring, earrings, enhancer and charm and they are some of the most Sacred pieces of jewelry that I own. Namaste! 09-17-13
STUNNING,DISTINCT PIECE!!! I was gifted this some time ago;I recently wore it on the Bixby TSV necklace adapting it to hang with a silk cord between the two rings. I received so many compliments!!! As always, Barbara's pieces are unique, well-made, and versatile. 10-19-12
VERY DISAPPOINTED My jaw hit the floor when I opened the box...it was so small. For the amount of money spent on this purchase I expected something more impressive, both in size and quality of materials used. Wore it around the house a few times trying to establish an emotional connection, but all I felt was foolish for spending so much money. Had purchased the set - ring, earrings and charm. Sent them all back. 07-12-12
He is handsome I think he is a little pricey, but very cute, i can't stop looking at him. I also don't think i can go to any jewelry counter ,and find ,any thing as well crafted or as beautiful for this price. I have a lot of Barbara Bixby, and treasure most of them. 03-16-12
Gorgeous Very beautiful and a sense of relaxation when look at the gorgeous Mother of Pearl face. Great detail just wish it was a bit larger. It is very unqiue 03-11-12
PEACEFULLY CHARMING!! I love this charm! Thank you BB for listening to your customers and bringing this in. The carving is fabulous, the stones beautiful. This really is peace at a glance. I just get lost looking at his face. Why the 4 stars and not 5, well the enhancher bail on my charm will not hook but the safty 8 lock will hook so I will try keeping him for now. 02-11-12
