1″x1.5″, found objects

I was thinking about all of the pieces on this pendant as flotsam, as things in the way as I try to float along, but then I realized that I’m not floating,  I’m working much harder to move forward. I’m swimming, pushing hard against the water and finding the gaps between the many barriers to swim through.  I’ve been watching my son learn to swim, and the process of learning is tough.  It’s reminded me that as I move along and take each stroke, at least I already know how to swim.  (Also, if you’re in the Boston area, come say hi and pick up some pendants for yourself this weekend at Somerville Open Studios!)
