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 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 in Los Angeles.
