As the Remover of Obstacles, and Lord of Beginnings, Ganesh is a popular charm or talisman for travelers. Combine this auspicious symbol with Maneki Neko, the beckoning kitty who welcomes good fortune and friends, and you have a winning combination to wear while planning future travel, even if you can't travel anywhere exciting right now.

Add beads and charms in desired order, and re-hook the wire hoop.
Use chain-nose pliers to twist ear wire open, and add to top of hoop. (New to jewelry-making? See Jewelry Basics 101, below.)
