simple string #15


Categories: ,

I was digging through my jewelry tools bag • & found a copper pendant I’d shaped & then never did anything with • & it was SUCH a cool shape i immediately made another one so i remembered how •  it’s on the bottom of this pendulum

“So powerful, in fact, is simple string in taming the world to human will and ingenuity that I suspect it to be the unseen weapon that allowed the human race to conquer the earth …” — Elizabeth Wayland Barber, Women’s Work: The First 20,000 Years

They’re not strung on string but they’re definitely strung. I couldn’t resist the reference to one of my favorite nonfiction books. Very much worth reading.

(i’m really proud of the hammered copper at the top & bottom of this one • it just came out GOOD)
