Sending Out An XOX

Lost at sea for what to get your sweetheart? Send them Yayoi Inada's dulcet, sterling silver message in a bottle pendant. At 19 inches, this modern necklace is a beautiful token of your affection. Inside the miniature glass bottle, a rolled up piece of blank paper awaits your doting dispatch. So, no matter what you write, make sure it's from the heart, and it will find its way to theirs. Handmade from sterling silver and glass in Brooklyn.

“I like to put the feelings of my childhood in the forest into my jewelry, the smell of rain, the warm touch of tree bark on your skin or sitting on a beautiful old tree stump just thinking up my own fairy tales.”

Born near a small forest in Japan, designer Yayoi Inada has long cherished the calm moments spent observing and appreciating nature's beauty. After working as an account executive for an advertising agency in Tokyo, she switched paths and enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York where she could follow her passion of becoming a jewelry designer. In 2004, she opened her own studio in Brooklyn, New York. Yayoi individually crafts all of her designs by hand using 14k gold or sterling silver. She specializes in hand-etching techniques and detailed wax carving to accentuate her appreciation for organic shapes and natural beauty. "I like to put the feelings of my childhood in the forest into my jewelry, such as the smell of rain, the warm touch of tree bark on your skin, or sitting on a beautiful old tree stump just thinking up fairy tales," she says.

    Comments about Message in a Bottle Necklace:

    My boyfriend gave this to me as a valentine's day gift and although I appreciated it, I was sorely disappointed. I had actually been pining after this and another necklace for quite some time, and decided this necklace sounded and looked much better. But once I unraveled the adorable yet casual pouch it came it, I felt like it was replaced with a vending machine trinket. The chain is gorgeous, but too delicate, and the bottle was a complete let down. The actual bottle is made of some plexi-glass or plastic, and instead of what I thought would be a glass stopper, was a rubber ball with a metal triangle rammed through. For the price, I was expecting something much nicer. I will actually be returning this item, and am now worried about making another purchase on this site.

        Comments about Message in a Bottle Necklace:

        I was really excited for this unique present for our one year anniversary. While the sterling silver chain with the leaf embellishment is very pretty, the bottle itself looks REALLY cheap for the [$] price tag. The bottle itself feels like plexi-glass. The worst part is the cap to the bottle. In the picture it looked like a lovely opaque glass, but in reality it is a cheap-looking rubber ball, with a large metal triangle that connects the bottle to the chain. It looks terrible, there is a ring of thin, flaky rubber where i assume it came out of the mold. While the sterling silver chain is lovely, the bottle part looks like it came out of a vending machine. I was really disappointed... I don't feel like this piece was worth [$]. The spirit of the gift is still there, but unfortunately I don't think my girlfriend will want to wear it...

        Service and delivery comments:

        My delivery was prompt.

        The piece came in a little baggie made out of recycled t-shirt material (a little casual for the tone of the gift, but nice all the same).

        I was pleased with the delivery.

        Comments about Message in a Bottle Necklace:

        I thought I was purchasing something unique and interesting...but not at all a good bargain for the price. It looks more like a child's trinket because of the unattractive rubber stopper in it. Kudos for the clever idea but I would not ever consider paying more than $20 for this.

            Very pretty deisgn, if maybe a touch fragile. Being able to personalize it by writing your own message inside is a nice touch!

            I bought this for my wife to give to her on Christmas. I was disappointed when I received the product because of the quality and the size of the bottle. I love the concept so I went ahead with it anyway. The kids filled out a personal message which was very cute. My wife is concerned that the bottle is only held on by the friction of the cap and she may loose it. I think if the price were less and the bottle were smaller my wife would wear it more often and I would have felt it was a better value.
