Forget Me Knot
This found object a discarded piece of tree bark was carved and lined with hand tooled copper and brass insets, and embedded with sterling silver water droplets. A vintage European church key hangs from a braided string.
There is a mystery that inspired this creation.
The wood came from an area where there had been early rural homesteads. Much to my curiosity there were two tiny nails imbedded in the wood with a tiny string. The romantic in me wondered who did this and what was the purpose? Bark that was intended to be burned as kindling became the object of my artistic fascination. The wood spoke to me; as I started to carve it hearts and tears surfaced. It became clear that something special and intimate once hung from the tiny nails; perhaps a locket or tiny key.
A forget me knot, to a love lost.
