    Handwork of a higher sort

    Posted by SUSAN on Jul 24th 2016

    What a lovely and incandescent piece this is. Simple yet involved. If you hold the pendant far away, you see the design of a plant curving up from the ground. Hold it closer, to the light, and you see the elephant behind the plant. Due to its generous size, it is a statement piece - but of quietude and natural things. The wood bead necklace is just as lovely in its simplicity. I love this piece and will wear it with honor throughout my life.
