For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the message was lost.
For want of a message the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

A a cold forged collarette of steel, clasped with a hook I smithed from a horseshoe nail. The pendant is an antique African carved Molkowane Palm Nut bead assembled on a riveted hoop suspending a preColumbian spindle whorl, another nail fragment, and next to it, surreal but somehow fitting, a tiny 18th century ivory corset eyelet. How they all come together is a story you must tell, remembering that the smallest of things builds to great consequences.

17 inches long, to ride above your collar bone, and links may be added on request.
