Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings. – It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
Bells are associated with the elements of Air and Water because of their rippling waves of sound, and they are considered both feminine (the bowl or cup) and masculine (the clapper). The ringing of bells is often used to symbolize peace and freedom.
These Temple Bells emit a clear tinkling sound when rung and are a sweet addition to your mindful home. Hand-pinched from high-fired chocolate coloured clay, each features a unique decoration of either white or blue glaze and 22K gold lustre. You'll notice the images each have a number: this is the bell you will receive.
Strung on durable natural twine with a combination of handmade ceramic and vintage beads, they should be hung either indoors or undercover. They are each packaged in a gift box and make a beautiful housewarming, new baby, engagement or celebratory gift for any occasion!
