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's early art career was full of "happy little trees;" she started out standing in front of the TV and painting along with legendary television artist Bob Ross. Today, she creates meaningful gold and sterling silver jewelry. Each piece is a reflection of her complex character, revealing an organic sentiment and creating a modern day heirloom. "I have looked to beautiful and powerful words to strengthen and heal me." Kathy says. "And 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."

Kathy talks about her work on our blog.

Comments about UncommonGoods Move And The Way Will Open Zen Necklace:

Love the necklace. Wish the clasp was heartier and more easily maneuverable. The lobster claw is a bit too small and the ring equally too small ... and weak. I almost lost the necklace within the first few weeks of wear. The ring pulled to opening and gave way... I need to find needle nose pliers to fix it. I may google a stronger and larger silver ring to replace it. I would hate to lose this necklace, as I bought it as a bit of a reminder for me during this time of transition in my life. I do love the necklace. I wish you could order it in 16" as well. I am small in frame and think it would look better on me at that length.
