Evoking a majestic ship's wheel, Zayd Makarim shapes a pendant of elegant symmetry. Pearls surround it with pristine perfection. "My inspiration is our island life in Bali," he says. "We have so many fishing villages surrounded by blue sea. I created this necklace in honor of their sailor lifestyle." The ringlet motif is inspired by Buddha's tightly curled hair.
.925 Sterling silver
