The ensō pendant is the core piece of the collection.  Simple and striking, you can choose the finish.  By default, I will face the ensō with the opening to the right as pictured, but if you'd like it in a different orientation, please do ask. 

 

Made from recycled sterling silver, the pendant will be supplied on a sterling silver rounded box (sometimes called Venetian) chain in a length of your choosing, and sent gift boxed. 

 

The story behind the Ensō collection

Ensō are ink circles, drawn in one fluid movement.  They are the physical manifestation of the artist's spiritual state at that precise moment.

 

My husband Lann is a calligrapher.  As a mindfulness practice, each day over a year he took his brush and made an ensō.  A few months in I began to be able to read Lann's mood by the style of his ensō.

It is a fascinating process, and on trying it I found it surprisingly difficult initially to relax and let the movement flow!  My silver Ensō collection is a tribute to mindfulness, to enlightenment and to letting go.

 

I carved the initial double sided ensō in jeweller's wax, trying to capture the essence of rough brush strokes in its form, before carefully shaping and smoothing it to feel beautiful. As with all my work, it is designed to feel as interesting as it looks.  I have had these cast in 100% recycled silver in small batches.
