 Quote Necklace “You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars."   - Max Ehrmann.  

Max Ehrmann was an American writer, poet, and attorney from Terre Haute, Indiana, widely known for his 1927 prose poem "Desiderata".  The poem ends with "And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy." You can read the full poem here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desiderata

The quote is perfect for gentle guidance, a touchstone for the wearer to remember that they are part of the universe as a whole.  It's a perfect quote for mindfulness.

The necklace is  available in sterling silver or 14kt gold vermeil.   2 bar pendant.  Each pendant measures 1/4" x 1" (25mm).

To reduce tarnishing, when you aren’t wearing your jewelry, store your pieces individually in small bags, removing as much air as possible. You may also want to put a small strip of anti-tarnish paper in each bag with the jewelry.
