Good Luck Pig Bead
Bead is 3/8" x 3/8".
Can a small, hand molded pig bring good luck? In the small village of Pomaire, Chile, three-legged good luck pigs are traditionally given to friends as a token of good will and love. These "Chanchitos" (literally, "little pigs") are hand made of clay by a family run artisan group in Pomaire, Chile. This bead can stand alone on a shelf, be made into a necklace, earrings or even be used as a button. Each good luck pig is sold individually, and varies in size, shape and personality. Chanchitos are not molded -- each is hand crafted and low fired. A tag with the Chanchito story is included. Also available as a larger good luck charm.
