margaret solow's pieces are timeless and elegant no matter what is happening in fashion at the moment. I love her simplicity and so happy she never strays from that.. Her pieces are cherished in Japan and all over the globe for their quality and unfailing beauty. Margaret makes everything by hand in her studio, her gems are never heated to subjected to chemical cleaning, they are in their natural state. Her pieces are strung one by one. The wabi sabi necklace includes a sterling silver bead made in the wabi sabi tradition, the liquid sterling is dropped in the sand to make an imperfect bead and strung on a lucky red nylon cord (18") with a sterling silver clasp. Wabi Sabi is finding the beauty of all things imperfect. Each necklace will come with a typed description of wabi sabi. This piece is as you see in photos - if you want to see more photos just email me.
