10 Things You Would Put in a Time Capsule by NINH WYSOCAN, JEWELRY DESIGNER AND ARTIST

Slow and Steady Wins the Race has always addressed the issue of time by proposing ideas that balance the timely with the timeless. For our blog we asked friends, family and other people we admire to share with us what they would put in a time capsule.

Ninh Wysocan grew up in the island of Guam. Her appreciation of nature was first sparked there, where she spent hours with her sister swimming in the coral reefs. The tangled shapes she discovered touched off an appreciation of nature's eccentric forms that she explores in her jewelry to this day. Since she started her jewelry business in 2003, she has been making each piece by hand using layering chains, forged rings, unique castings and unusual gemstones to create pieces that are both intricate and subtly detailed. She is based in NYC.

Items for a Time Capsule:

1. "Santa Sangre" soundtrack
2. Clove essential oil
3. "African Ceremonies" by Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher
4. Paul Noble's ceramics
5. Jack fruit- I'm allergic , but love it so much i will still eat it when i encounter a fresh one
