New torn paper pendant-- this one I made just for me. Balance is a big theme in my life-- gotta work to keep it. The others I've been making don't have text, so far. I'm not sure they will, at least not on the front. I am playing with the idea of text on the back-- snippets simulating ephemera or snatches from personal letters or diaries. Informal, vernacular, somewhat decontextualized. Making the pendant a sort of simulated palimpsest. Palimpsest, fragment, artifact, treasure.

That's Mars Orange on there-- what did I ever do without iron oxide pigments? Oh, and raw umber too, but I feel far less passionate about the umbers. Raw or burnt.
