Richard carved this moon and toggle from old bone & plaited the cord whilst teaching art to disadvantaged kids in New Zealand back in the 80’s & now it’s mine I feel so very lucky!

    It looks lovely, and much older, with its patina.

      Richard is brilliant, he has such a fine sense of line and attention to every detail, he is an artist by nature, a teacher by vocation, I feel so spoiled & am honoured to be his friend.

    Perfect for you, Mo, and you will treasure and wear it and keep the magic flowing. A really beautiful piece.

      I’ve been playing around with variations of that 4 strand twining technique ever since Richard gave it to me, it’s such a beautifully finished piece & has a great story behind it…
