Sterling Silver Heart Parade Bracelet

We often go to the Royal Palace Temple for praying.  There are many Bodhi trees in the temple.  The Bodhi tree is a large and very old Sacred Fig tree (Ficus religiosa).  In religious iconography, the Bodhi tree is recognizable by its heart-shaped leaves, which are usually prominently displayed. It takes 100 - 3,000 years for a Bodhi tree to fully grow.

This tree is a frequent destination for pilgrims, being the most important of the four main Buddhist pilgrimage sites. Other holy Bodhi trees which have a great significance in the history of Buddhism are the Anandabodhi tree in Sravasti and the Bodhi tree in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. Both are believed to have been propagated from the original Bodhi tree.

We've got inspiration when we walked pass by many Bodhi trees.  The Bo leaves were falling down, we picked them up and turned them upside down they looked like hearts.  Therefore we immediately made this bracelet from sterling silver 92.5 heart charms and rings when we reached home.

This heart bracelet is very nice for everyday wearing.
