Whence Stories Came by luthien27 Whence Stories Came by luthien27
One day I had this vision of stories appearing from the buds of flowers … And then I sat down and made a wee book, the tiniest I’ve ever made. I fashioned a pod-like flower from repurpose copper and inserted the wee book and a pen nib inside. The pod is the writer, and from within him a story is born. I added 3 tiny seeds. They will be the Seed of Passion, the Seed of Imagination and the Seed of Artistry. And that … is how stories are born.

This Mixed Media piece combines repurpose copper and brass wires augmented by fire, stained lace, sari fibers, chains, findings, Jaspers, Howlites, a pen nib and a handmade wee book of rustic leather and coffee stained pages.

*the chain necklace is 20 inches in circumference, plus a 2 inch chain extension

*the lace choker is 14.5 inches in circumference, and adjustable by moving the clasps down the links of the metal chain (see image)

*the pendant is 9 inches from bail to end of fiber

*SOLD*
