Two unusual listings have landed in the shop.
Firstly, an offering from my garden. The Imperfect Circle is a light and delicate wreath made from wisteria shoots. They were cut when young (giving the wreath the green colour), coiled and left to dry out to fix them in shape.
They can be hung like a line drawing on a white wall to remind you of the nature of imperfection and balance or used as a wreath base. Simply wrap or tuck fresh or dried plants around and into it to make an effortless wall or table decoration year round. I have used them around a candle on the Christmas table or with colourful leaves to celebrate Autumn.
And secondly, a hemisphere, a bowl holding a portion of the night sky. An alchemical vessel, a dish of star soup. What ideas does it stir? Does it hold, contain? Or pour out, radiate and transmit the cosmic frequencies as it rests on the wearer's heart?
This pendant is formed from a copper sheet, oxidised with a tracery of shiny stars scratched into the dark surface of the metal. The back of it is burnished to a shine over the pattern of lines and clouds of oxidation. It hangs on a silk cord that I dyed with indigo in my vat. The ends are knotted together and combed into tassels.
