A Wisdom Exchange Necklace

Thich Nhat Hanh’s “Coming Home: Jesus and Buddha as Brothers,” has impacted over and over again my own understanding of Buddhism and Christianity– compassion, mindfulness–and how I have discussed the artwork of these great religions with my own students. My assemblage is inspired by Hanh’s writings and teachings.  This new work includes an Art Deco GF Cross, a 1950s Chinese hand carved Buddha peach pit bead, a Victorian Knot brooch/pin (for love, affection and friendship) and dyed Jade (blessing whatever it touches)  on brass chain and findings.
