ki'imak okox

... translates to happy mushroom, from the cakchiquel language of the Maya.
which is what this necklace has, a happy little shroom!
The Maya used mushrooms indigenous to thier land for spiritual experiences.
I found the simplicity of one small mushroom makes for something interesting to talk about.
You could wear it around your neck with anything.
It even has spots, what a cute little mushroom.

I'm thinking of doing the same design with leather string (imitation, of course!) instead of sterling silver chain, for a more natural-looking style. I have shroom beads in other colors, too.
