Beautifully Flawed

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 necklace is a perfect example. The tiny 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.

Margaret Solow's fine jewelry is informed by the world around and inside of her, drawing inspiration from her travels, art, philosophy and nature. Embracing the imperfection found in nature, her stones are chosen for their individual beauty rather than uniform flawlessness. Integral to her work is a respect for people and the environment. Margaret uses responsible manufacturing practices, sustainable elements, and non-conflict gems in her designs.

Comments about UncommonGoods Wabi-Sabi Necklace:

My daughter was thrilled with her birthday gift, along with story that goes with it. I'm hoping the "thread" has a long life. The silver charm is lovely.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Wabi-Sabi Necklace:

        I've been looking at this necklace for a long time and finally decided to buy it. Recently, I have struggled with the whole idea of perfection, in everything. This necklace reminds me of the perfection of imperfection. It has helped me appreciate life as it is. Wabi-Sabi reminds me to stay in the present and enjoy what comes my way.

          So comfy you don't notice that you're wearing it, until you get 10 compliments in a row on it!! I like how the concept of Wabi-Sabi helps me keep in mind that perfection is found in imperfection. Beautiful, and mindful. Great piece.
