wabi-sabi braceletby Margaret Solow $51.00
- the story
For centuries, the Japanese culture has cultivated a concept of beauty far different from the West. Instead of the idealized, "perfect" form, they prize things for their imperfections, and their unadorned simplicity. This kind of humble beauty is called wabi-sabi.
This bracelet is a perfect example. The pendant is created by dropping molten silver into water. The process is spontaneous and never creates the same shape twice, and its "flawed", asymmetrical form is an inherent part of its elegant appeal. The charm is suspended from a red thread, which symbolizes protection and good fortune. Handmade by Margaret Solow in Los Angeles.

Comments about WABI-SABI BRACELET:
This bracelet is one of a trio of important bracelets that I wear all day, every day - my "jewelry uniform". The special meaning of wabi-sabi reminds me that whatever difficulty I have to deal with is not part of a perfect world - it's just the life I live.
