Shin/Shin Ornament Amulet. This double sided piece has the Japanese characters for the word “Shin” which means God on one side. On the other side is the Hebrew letter “Shin” which also stands for God. I like putting them together because they sound the same and have the same meaning, but come from such vastly different places. I think it shows our oneness. The ceramic beads come from Africa and support families there. Colors vary.
