the FUKINSEI necklace

Sale price Price $75.00 Regular price Unit price  per 

Meet the FUKINSEI necklace, the counterpart to the FUKINSEI cuff (and forthcoming rings). This cuff is representative of the seven pillars of Japanese Zen aesthetics within wabi-sabi, but also focuses on one specifically… fukinsei, or the natural beauty and balance found in asymmetry.

There are seven hand stamped lines to represent these seven tenets of wabi-sabi:

Fukinsei || asymmetry

Kanso || simplicity

Shinzen || naturalness with purpose + intention

Seijaku || tranquility, energized calm + stillness

Shibui || understated beauty + elegant simplicity

Datsuzoku || transcending the conventional + outside the box

Yugen || an awareness of the universe that triggers an emotional response too deep + mysterious for words

In embodying wabi-sabi itself this piece is
imperfect, made by hand, and not meant to look like it was made by a machine. It is cut and shaped by hand, stamped by hand with a hammer and toil that were my grandfather’s.

The brass version is finished with a polished finish that will age and patina beautifully with time and wear. The sterling silver option is finished with a polished finish and heavy oxidation that will age beautifully with time and wear.

Each one will be one of a kind because it’s made to order, by my hands. Expect your order to ship within 1-4 weeks of ordering.
