We describe ourselves through dichotomies, such as whether we are lead with our "head" or "heart". Yet such distinctions lose force in meaning because living requires both and each is really the same as the other but in a different way. Just as weight and volumetric measures of eight ounces and one cup are subtly different, they generally describe the same material. Though thinking and feeling are different, they contribute to and describe the quality of our lives in much the same way. The analogy of head:heart::eight ounces:one cup represents this equivalence in a watercolor design under a glass cabochon on a copper disc pendant. The 1" pendant hangs from this 18" necklace of satin cords in ombre shades of blue to orange and back again, secured by a copper toggle clasp.

Cost: $25.00 USD

This mid-length 18" necklace works best with higher necklines and thinner shirt materials, like woven cotton or jersey, rather than chunky knits.
