Balance, Again

1″x1.5″, found objects

With a  shift in my work and the beginning of summer, plans changing and plans being made, the question of balance is once again top of mind.  I was gifted a bag full of earrings, full of history and the aged metals that I love.  The one that found its way into this pendant had a funny sort of balance to it.  No symmetry, but a half-hug.  Held together with a chain and a bead, it has the kind of precarious balance that I’m feeling right now.  Does it work? Yes. Will it work for long?  Not sure.
