This Oak tree seems to think it is fall. They just get soooo brown with the lack of rain.
The brown of the Jasper fits into the picture just fine.
This Paso Robles Oak tree is reminding me of autumn breezes, just a bit windy and not yet too cold. This is a tree of life for it gives us air, shade, food and coolness.
Almost all hear about the Native Americans in CA. carrying baskets full of acorns around to the holes in the stones or rocks that were used as mortars and pestles.
I met a Korean who was boiling down the acorns for the starch that was a part of her diet. She said most Koreans do that.
I learned a lot about the process and the paste tasted well enough, however was a good source of protein.
A mixture of semi precious brown stones, light and dark, are for the representation of leaves.
All is silver colored wire so you will have the feeling of elegance and not the expense. It creates lots of positive comments by others when worn, I am told.
About 1 3/4 inches (4.4 cm)in diameter.
