Nina with Bay necklace

The Bay is one of my favorite new necklaces. Inspired by African sculpture, the scale is right on for right now. I wore it on a New York trip recently with a really colorful dress and also with a neutral linen outfit and I never wanted to take it off. The selection is a chapter from the Tao Te Ching translated by Stephen Mitchell and creates such a lovely graphic design on the plate. The Bay necklace comes in sterling silver or brass--I love the brass one--it is a warm metal and looks great with so many colors and textures.

We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the center hole that makes the wagon move.
We shape clay into a pot,k but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we desire.
We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable.
We work with being, but non-being is what we use.

-Lao Tzu
