This week's theme seems to center around the jitters! We all get jitters about what lies ahead and sometimes those jitters lead us into new creative territory.
Today you're looking at Wendy Moore's necklace Tsarang Mala #4 that she created for the exhibit she mounts in two weeks at the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery in Australia. It started with the stripes in Nepali aprons and then Wendy added the horn shapes that she remembered above the doorways on her latest trek in Mustang province. Then flowers appeared. Her story about this evolving creation is fascinating.
Her exhibit is described as, "…inspired by the contrasts of living in the Outback and her frequent travels to Nepal where she works helping women to create jewellery and objects to sell, enabling them to escape lives of poverty, trafficking and abuse."
If you'd like to try some of your own Tibetan style, check out Wendy's project in the new book! Or visit the Samunnat shop on Etsy.

Wendy this necklace just sings. I loved reading about your exploration with color and how this piece evolved. Your exhibition will be fabulous I'm sure. Thanks for sharing Cynthia.

Wendy Moore ,
Unbelievably exciting to wake up and see this Cynthia. And it certainly helps with the jitters! Doing the exhibition was part of saying yes to scary things and the whole process (nearly two years in preparation) has been a fabulous one. I have learnt so much and it has been a real incentive to get in there and explore. Thank you so much for this huge boost! I hope people love the book and am very excited as I wait for mine to wing it's way Down Under!
