Stop All The Clocks (Auden) - Double Mobius Necklace

Sale price $69.95 Regular price $1,355.00
This sterling silver Mobius necklace features a double mobius which is finely engraved with part of the poet WH Auden's "Stop All The Clocks":
'He was my North, my South, my East and West, 
My working week and my Sunday rest, 
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song' 
This quotation is from the third stanza of W. H. Auden's "Stop all the Clocks" from The Year's Poetry, 1938. The stanza continues 'I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.'
This remarkable double 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, an appropriate and symbolic form for a quotation such as this.
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.
Sterling silver mobius pendant on 18" silver chain.
Mobius pendant measures 1" in diameter. 
Composed of .925 solid sterling silver. Also available in 14 k gold by special order. 
Gift packaged with story card and black drawstring bag. 
Crafted proudly in the USA by Laurel Elliott DVB New York, designer of the original Mobius necklace. 
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.
