Mobius Pendants

It was a lovely creative weekend. I had the mathematical inspiration of the mobius burning up my brain, so I fashioned two freeform hollow sculptures of tightly woven fine silver. The first pendant is a sort of cocoon with three apparent openings, but because of the twists in construction, the openings are formed by a single continuous edge, making them one - and by extension, the form is therefore technically one sided. Many spiritual analogies could be drawn from a form like this - the unity of all things, three in one..... In any case, it is very pleasing from both a tactile and visual perspective and its mathematical properties give it added fascination. The second silver pendant is more open, and I will post it as soon as I have a photo done.

Good morning, Ruth! I just had a quick veiw of the new items...I like the "Milk of Kindness" (I think that's what it's called) pendant - very delicate, yet profound. Your "Run" one is cute too! Hope you're not destroying your poor doctoring hands with the titanium stuff - sounds like hard work. How's Liam doing? We still all have colds...all the way thru the Hawaii trip & everything - they just don't seem to be going away. Blech. Anyway...first day back to work here, so I'd better get back to it. Take care & the site looks great! love Kerri
