Rings True

We all live in a fleeting, invisible moment called "the present." Not only is now the time for us to take action, it also serves as a link between our warm, fading memories of the past, and the shining hope of the future.

Jewelry artist Beth Lawrence captures this passage of time in her elegant necklace. It has three interlocking circles: a muted, oxidized ring represents the past; a sterling silver ring wrapped with a band of silver wire captures the present; and a shimmering, gold filled ring represents the future. The three are held in place by an understated, 18-inch silver chain. More than just an elegant accessory, the necklace offers a constant reminder to live in the moment. Included is a card explaining the necklace's symbolism. Handmade in Nashville, TN.

Nashville artist Beth Lawrence can't remember a time she hasn't made jewelry—she even sold her work to neighbors and boutiques while still in elementary school. After earning her degree in studio art, she worked at galleries throughout Atlanta and Nashville before rekindling her passion for creating jewelry. Drawing inspiration from geometry, she makes her pieces with "love and a hammer," using sterling silver and gold-filled wire to form accessories that are simple and delicate.

Absolutely wonderful. I'm beyond pleased with this necklace. I bought it for myself as an early Christmas gift, but also in celebration of a recent personal milestone. Celebrating past, present and future is perfect. And then, when I opened the beautiful packaging, the maker's tagline is "made with love, and a hammer" which reminded me immediately of my father. He was a master carpenter and made something special for each of his children - each piece made with love and a hammer. Kismit for sure!

The necklace is delicate in look, but feels substantial enough to wear without worry. I plan to wear it every day with everything, but will take it off nightly, as I do with other jewelry.

This piece was part of our initial order from Uncommon Goods and we are already looking forward to what we will get next. I am a very pleased new customer, website works well, packaging was great, products are as stated. Overall great experience. I have already recommended your site to several people. Thank you.

The necklace was lovely ay first. Each loop was a different color and the chain was bright and easy to clasp. It was just the right length and was classic enough to wear every day. However, after only a few months, I began to notice that te colors were CHIPPING off of the discs and the chain was turning dull and brown. I could not fix the disc colors, nor would the chain brighten up with jewelry-shine-materials. It ended up looking cheap.

      I really love this design. In fact, this is the second time I have bought this necklace. I wore the first one constantly, in the pool, in the ocean, etc.... Several links broke one after another. I repaired them (with thread) but finally got tired of dealing with it and just bought a new one.

            I bought eight of these to give to my students who were graduating. Perfect sentiment, right? Sadly, though, I returned them because the necklace was cheap-looking and tiny. Not worth the price.
