A One-Of-A-Kind Deserves It’s Own Home

You might remember earlier posts showing this piece:

It was a piece that began at a session at Artfest over a year ago.  Once home with it’s beginnings, I continued to allow it to evolve until it was a completed wearable one-of-a-kind art piece.  So much love, and thought, and care goes into the making of these that they become such a cherished thing that I sometimes have a hard time parting with them.  It’s like there is a part of me in them that I’m not quite ready to let go of.  Eventually the time feels right, and I can offer them for sale, in the hopes that they find the person they were created for.  This is a piece, that I felt deserved a place of it’s own.  A home for it to have all to itself for when it journeys to its new owner.  Seems silly perhaps, but for me, a one-of-a-kind piece really does deserve special treatment.  And, so I built it a home and painted the front and back with images that related to the message of the pendant.
