Wild Warmth

Though not quite a necklace, this unique and soulful piece is neither a scarf: rather, it is a hybrid, the best of both worlds:
warming
cool as a hipster without the irony
wild
and somehow tame

like Pocahontas in England.

A warm mustard Elk hide
one side of the edge left natural, the other
given a punched, elegant lace (found all through the design)

A small button of bean sprout stitched on
and the wee-est rivets placed on either side of the button hole to ensure it doesn't continue to grow...

It is so soft, so lush and so chock full of prayer and meaning: picture me hanging on for dear life as Inspiration moved quickly
and dictated tasks....

"Scallop," it said.
"Punch more!" it cried
"Tea, please!" it implored....

yeesh!!! Is creativity always so demanding???

A strong, delicate piece of my heart
in the Leather Shop this morning.
