The Beginning Is Always Today Necklace
- Shipping & Returns
Inscription: "The beginning is always today" with Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's signature. Best known as the author of Frankenstein, this inspirational quote is the dedication from her book Short Stories, vol II. Shelley's positive message encourages us to live in the present moment.
Inscribed on our mini mobius shape, the symbol of infinity. The words have no beginning or end but continue forever around the mobius.
- 3/4" diameter
- Chain length: 18"
- Necklace extender available
The mobius is our signature shape and we were one of the first jewelers to deduce how to reproduce it via the lost wax casting method. Named after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius [1790-1868], the mobius represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end or one of infinite length. As such, it became accepted as a symbol for infinity. The oval mobius bracelets fit comfortably, turning easily on the wrist, so that the wearer can be reminded of the message at a glance. The single mobius necklace moves on the chain when worn, changing its appearance continually, while the message remains constant. Our new double mobius necklace with its flowing, complex shape is an exciting addition to the collection, allowing for a longer message than the single mobius. The engraved message on these pieces repeats around the plane into infinity.
