Amulets in Thailand have been a large part of the culture since its founding. In the 12th century when Buddhism was introduced in Thailand, monks adopted the practice of amulet making and carved amulets specific to their beliefs. At this time amulets were all hand made from earthen materials. Original amulets were formed from holy mixes of earth, herbs, and hemps. Amulets in Thailand are thought to bring luck or protection to the wearer.
The amulet we cast our pendant from originated in Nong Saeng, Thailand. This amulet is used to draw in wealth and fortune, but it is also used as a safety precaution to prevent dangerous situations and misfortune.
