the Fukinsei Necklace
Meet the Fukinsei Necklace, the counterpart to the Fukinsei cuff, and 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 tool 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.
