The concept of "Yin-Yang" is used to describe how polar or seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other in turn. Yin and yang transform each other: like an undertow in the ocean, every advance is complemented by a retreat, and every rise transforms into a fall. Many natural dualities—e.g. dark and light, female and male, low and high, cold and hot— are thought of as manifestations of yin and yang. This unique pendant embodies the symbolic pattern of yin & yang's natural ebb & flow, helping to maintain serenity and balance within, as we move through this sometimes chaotic world. Enjoy each moment as it arises, as life is a celebration of paradox! Appx 1" and comes in a gift box with black cotton necklace cord. Each one of our pendants are individually hand-crafted, so slight variations in size and color are to be expected... and enjoyed! Flame-sculpted and kiln-annealed to ensure durability.
