In Muddy Road two monks are traveling and one helps an attractive young woman cross a river (contact with women considered unwise and dangerous). In the analogy woman:cargo::deviation:rule, considering the woman as cargo ponders the role of deviations to the rule. The simple act of helping a person across a river was a kind act but against the rules for the monks. Taken literally, "exceptional" is forming an exception, but more commonly, we use it to describe an outstanding quality such as showing kindness over strict adherence. The 1" sterling silver pendant features a watercolor design with the analogy, and the design is protected with a water-resistant glaze. The pendant hangs from an 18" sterling silver rolo chain and lobster claw clasp.

Cost: $36.00 USD
