ORIGINAL MOBIUS JEWELRY FROM DVBNY. MADE IN THE USA!
This .925 elegant sterling silver Mobius necklace is finely engraved with words from a beloved prayer attributed to St. Patrick, 5th Century Christian missionary, Bishop and a patron saint of Ireland. This phrase is inscribed in English and Gaelic:I arise today through the strength of heaven
eascraíonn liom inniu tríd an neart na bhflaitheas.
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. This simple and well known truth is engraved repeatedly around the form, interspersed with kisses, as a daily reminder of life's blessings.
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.
