Sari Silk Comfort

I made these simple collars with washed, conditioned and colored recycled silk from lovely Indian saris, yes- worn by Indian women and their children and then reclaimed. Sari silk to me is the essence of wabi-sabi perfection-in- imperfection, recognition that the worn is noble.  With those lovely thoughts, it caresses you.

The stones are little haiku poems: each syllable chosen carefully to fit with the ones preceding and to create a lovely meaning  -  limited, like our lives, by finitude.
