I came back yesterday from Savannah, Georgia ...
... and look what I found there, and brought back with me.
A new bracelet:
- Ceramic round star-flower bead by RoundRabbit.
- Wood, glass, copper and silvery beads knotted on pale blue waxed cotton cord.
But in fact, no, I have never been to Savannah, Georgia for real. This is only how I imagine that it feels to be there. To walk under those very special trees with the spanish moss hanging from them. To pass the old houses with their front gardens. We are in the south, so lots of sunlight bleaches any strong colors. A general atmosphere of older, past times. A very interesting place that I would love to visit one day.
Of course my imagination is strongly colored by the book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" by John Berendt. The book way much more than the film. Even visually from my inner visions. The book is always so much better than any film in my opinion. I did like the film too. But the book is sooooo much richer. It must be around 15-17 years since I read it. It's about time I do it again. I'd like to listen to it as an audiobook in English, so if anyone knows of a good reading, please let me know.
It's funny how a design of a bracelet can take you on such a journey. Totally unexpected for me. Very pleasant though. It only came about as I was going to name the piece for the Etsy listing, ($49).
All my best,
