I’ve been having a LOT of fun with these lil leaves, & they just work so well dangling from a necklace like this. Plus, well, blue & green are two of my favorite colors. This design came together without much thought involved at all.

“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.

(& then of course I did basically the same necklace six more times)
