I LOVE circles. I LOVE what they represent. Unity, wholeness, and infinity. Without beginning or end, without sides or corners. I LOVE that it’s a noun and a verb.
Circles are often seen as protective symbols. Standing within a circle shields a person from supernatural dangers or influences outside of the circle. Conversely, a circle can also be containing, keeping inside from been released.
Circles show up a lot in my art work and my art journaling. Have I mentioned I LOVE circles? Even my favorite bead shape is round.
I have been thinking a lot about unity and wholeness, but mostly about making connections. I made this necklace with that in mind.
I made irregular circles out of polymer clay to represent nothing is perfect. The little dots represent people, connections, memories and how really small we are in the scheme of things, but we’re all connected.
Round and round we go. Where we end up, nobody knows.
