ORIGINAL MOBIUS JEWELRY FROM DVBNY. MADE IN THE USA!
'May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. The rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May god hold you in the hollow of His hand.'
The derivation of this familiar blessing is uncertain, though many believe it was spoken by St Patrick himself. This unusual pendant has been finely engraved with 'May the road rise to meet you and may God hold you in the hollow of His hand.'
This extraordinary necklace moves the tradition of poesy jewelry into the twenty first centruy, in its sophisticated form and highly technical degree of craftsmanship. The geometric shape of the pendant is known as a Mobius strip, after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Mobius. It represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end, or one of infinite length. As such it became an accepted mathematical symbol for infinity. The circlet will move about the chain when worn, constantly changing its appearance. Creating one shape, then another. The more one observes its seeming simplicity, the more complex it becomes. The message remains constant, the form never rests.
All are craftman made. Each piece is accompanied by a storycard explaining the history or derivation of the inscription. Chain: 18" [46mm] sterling cable chain. Pendant made of .925 Sterling Silver.
