The writing is faint and encircles the bold hypotrochoid design: woman:cargo::deviation:rule. This refers to the Zen story of traveling monks, one who assisted a struggling woman over a stream even though monks are forbidden from contact with women. The analogy condenses the idea of the woman as cargo showing the importance of considering deviations to rules. The pendant is patina brass with a resin coat suspended from a copper coil necklace with copper clasp.

Length: necklace - 18"


  • patina brass 1 1/4" pendant with resin coating
  • copper coil surrounding Soft Flex cord
  • copper hook and eye clasp

Care & cleaning: Clean with warm soapy washcloth (do not submerge) and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on copper.

The Soft Flex beading cord within the copper coil prevents the coil from overstretching, and the pendant is robust to tugs and drops. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
