i made this piece to honor the magnificent leonard cohen. to me, some of his most meaningful words were "ring the bell that still can ring. forget your perfect offering. there is a crack in everything. that's how the light gets in." when i showed this necklace to my daughter she asked what those lyrics meant. i told her it means to appreciate the good things you have in your life, rather than wishing for something you've lost or don't have; give up on trying to do things perfectly; and that everyone is flawed and flaws are beautiful. terrifically fabulous advice as you start the new year, yes?
