This elegant sterling silver Mobius necklace is finely engraved with a beautifully worded Celtic blessing in an iconic Celtic font:
"Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you"
This blessing features a lovely and lilting, line-by-line repetition of phrasing, a well-loved and recognized element in early Celtic poetry and prayers. It is generally accepted that they are based on the writing of William Sharp in his 1895 novel Dominium of Dreams. Sharp was part of the Celtic Revival movement that expressed a renewed interest in many aspects of the Celtic culture; he wrote also under the pseudonym Fiona MacLeod.
This remarkable pendant employs the uniquely beautiful geometric form known as a Mobius strip, named after the German mathematician, August Ferdinand Mobius (1790-1868). It represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end, or one of infinite length. As such it becomes an accepted symbol for infinity.
The circlet will move about the chain when worn, constantly changing its appearance, creating one shape and then another. The more you observe its seeming simplicity, the more complex it becomes. The message remains constant, the shape never rests.

DVB utilizes the "cire-perdue" or lost-wax casting method of jewelry creation. Lost-wax casting is actually an ancient method of jewelry production used in creating the finest jewelry. Owing to the nature of the technique and the hand finishing of each casting, small variations in dimension, weight and finish will occur.
