Back in Stock... Margaret Solow - Wabi-sabi necklaces!
The Margaret Solow wabi-sabi necklace is the perfect mothers day gift... (even if you are just getting it for yourself!) - Wabi-sabi is the beauty in all things Imperfect, and I really love the idea of that... there is a book too.. Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers by Leonard Koren ($9/paperback) and I also think that there is a book on how to wabi-sabi your home (like that idea too!).
But mostly, I just like to wear my wabi-sabi and think about the beauty in all things imperfect, I think I live by that rule! Wabi-sabi is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is the beauty of things modest and humble. It is the beauty of things unconventional. Wabi-sabi represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic system but it is difficult to explain precisely in western terms. Jewelry designer Margaret Solow translates this idea in a necklace, in which she drops silver into sand and makes a hole from which she threads a red cord. There are no two pieces that are the same, each imperfect for you to wear around your neck on a 18" red nylon cord with a sterling silver clasp ($48) - also available in gold ($150).
Happy Mothers Day... (just an idea!)
