“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 people, it’s hard to stop making necklaces)
