Troubling of a Star...


“All things by immortal power,
Near and Far
Hiddenly
To each other linked are,
That thou canst not stir a flower
Without troubling of a star.”

-Francis Thompson

This piece was inspired by two great artists. The first is a poet by the name of Francis Thompson. The second is the amazing silversmith, Anne Choi. She crafted the two barrel beads that have parts of his poem on them. I am beyond smitten with her work.

I bet your a mess trying to get everything ready for the show! Like us. That necklace is lovely, you should show it to Anne when we get to Milwaukee.
