A paradoxical message of persistence - "yield and overcome"- hangs on a plain feldspar mineral pendant from a colorful plaid silk ribbon in this 18" necklace with copper components, including an easy fastening hook and eye clasp. The message is rooted in Taoist philosophy; that which yields ultimately has the greater longevity and overcomes that which is brittle and inflexible. Double strands of the silk ribbon are raw-edged.

Cost: $25.00 USD
