The Journey

journey

This necklace is part of the Journey series. It is about an imaginary journey following a star into the desert and back again.

This is an amulet bag gradient dyed with red onion skins (both the olive green and the sand colour visible on the back). The smocking suggests the wandering path with the starry skies above. One bright star stands above the horizon and guides the travellers into the darkening evening, towards their goal. The edge of the fabric is left raw and is as soft as the desert sand or the hair of camels. There's a small space inside the bag to fit a memento from the travels.

It will be in the shop tomorrow evening.
