the Fukinsei Ring
the Fukinsei Ring
Meet the Fukinsei Ring, the counterpart to the Fukinsei cuff, and necklace. This ring 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.
A simple sterling silver band is a ring everyone can wear. It’s something that fits effortlessly into daily life. Whether you stack it with other rings, or wear it on its own, the Fukinsei Ring is a daily wear piece that embodies all the nuanced concepts of wabi-sabi.
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.
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.
