Find Your Way

Whether you've always marched to your own drummer or just found your voice, this beautiful necklace by Kathy Bransfield dares you to be different. Made from sterling silver and 22kt gold plated brass, this two-piece pendant features a hand stamped quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson as a hidden message for the wearer. Handmade in the USA.

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail"
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.

This was a Christmas gift for my daughter. She is a strong young woman who definitely makes her own path. But every once in a while, she will doubt herself - I gave her this to remind her that she is a strong and intelligent young woman and to go with what she feels is right and to make her own path even if she is the only one going that way. Not to doubt herself.

Purchased as a meaningful gift for college graduation. Lettering so tiny need a magnifier to read. Chain so short would be a choker around anyone but a child's neck. Purchased a separate chain of appropriate lenght (elsewhere), and one that enhances the not-so-impressive look of this piece in order to salvage this as a decent gift. Way over-priced for what I received.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Leave a Trail Necklace:

    I was looking for a necklace with an inspirational message for a graduation gift, and loved the intricate delicacy of the two tone pendant, the half hidden Ralph Waldo Emerson quote, the lovely chain of perfect length, and that it was made in the US.
    The graduate just loved it, and everyone wanted to know where they could order one. I told them, Uncommon Goods is my go-to place for online shopping.

              I had been searching for a long time for a retirement gift for a wonderful female colleague and friend, without success. I wanted something meaningful, but not cheesy. I was thrilled when I found this. It was perfect, and very well received.

                    It is a lovely, meaningful piece of jewelry. Given to my daughter as she ended one "trail" and embarks on another. She has not taken it off! I do wish that the writing/stamp was a little more legible,I realize each one is individual.
                    Otherwise I am happy I chose to buy it.
