Meditative Movement

Envelop the Zen philosophy of living each moment fully into your life with this necklace designed by Kathy Bransfield. Artfully inscribed into a sterling silver pendant, "Move and the way will open," is an ancient Zen proverb that encourages the power of action in order to discover yourself and the path to enlightenment. A 22K gold-plated brass open enso, a Zen symbol representing being a part of something greater and that imperfection is inherent and essential to our existence, completes the ensemble. Handmade in California.

Kathy Bransfield

Kathy Bransfield grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she spent her childhood climbing trees before starting an art career standing in front of the TV and painting alongside legendary television artist Bob Ross. After graduating from The School for Creative and Performing Arts, she began traveling and selling her own handcrafted jewelry.

She creates meaningful jewelry out of both gold and sterling silver, each a reflection of her complex character, revealing an organic sentiment and creating a modern day heirloom.

"For over 25 years, I have looked to beautiful and powerful words to strengthen me or heal me. And for even longer I have looked to nature to do the same. I think within the jewelry there is a lovely balance of the two merging into one.
