The karesansui, or dry landscape Zen garden is one in which stone and sand compositions combine with trees, plants and architecture to express the cosmic beauty in worldly surroundings. The beauty of these gardens cultivate concentration and meditation. It takes great care and training to be the caretaker of a Zen garden, but this garden necklace will be no trouble at all.

A vintage glass cabochon with yellow and brown opaque swirls is the feature of this necklace and represents the stone as well as the combed waves of a Zen garden. It is set on a rectangle of sterling silver which has been oxidized and then scratched and stamped to make a pattern which represents the gravel and sand raking and architectural elements in a Zen garden. The clasp is a hand formed hook, which has angular aspects and has been flattened and given a finish to match the pendant. The clasp fits into a rectangle which has been cut out of the silver. The chain is is a bar link style which reflects the style of the necklace. Like a Japanese Zen garden, each element of this necklace has ben chosen with care to make it a cohesive design.

The pendant measures 1 1/4 inch (31 mm.) by 1 inch (26 mm.). The total length of the necklace is 18 1/2 inches. The clasp connects to the pendant in the front and is a feature. The glass cabochon is vintage piece of unused stock. It was produced durring the 1940's to 1960's.
