Wabi-sabi: the acceptance of transience and imperfection, "Wabi-sabi nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect."
["Wholeness does not mean perfection, it means no part left out."
How Wabi - sabi studs came to be: Working on some little stud earrings I was going through some stones I recently purchase from a colleague Janis Kerman who has recently retired, I came across these adorable imperfect rubies. Rubies at there best can be more expensive than diamonds. As I was preparing the settings I was able to see the quirks of these little stones, and they just kept making me smile. Along with the organic beauty of the little keshi pearls I recently purchase I thought they made an adorable duo. I incorporated moonstones in another pair with the perfectly imperfect keshi pearls.
