The Art of Stopping Time
For Michale Dancer, life's beauty lies in its ephemerality. But what if you could freeze time? The question came to Michale one day while studying the complex lines and elegant shape of foods and botanicals around her. Through an intricate, seven-hour process of harvesting and plating in 24-karat antique gold, she captures the elaborate texture and contour of this star anise so that it can remain beautifully intact around your neck. Like a still life painting, the piece holds the magic of a fleeting moment and serves as a reminder to each passing day. Handmade in California.
