:: The Scent of Creosote ::

An infinite landscape of creosote carpets the southern desert earth under a vast open sky.  White hot sun beats down.  Rain comes only infrequently, and when it does, the incomparable resinous scent of the creosote opens on the desert air.  Once you have caught this scent it can never be described, but you will never forget it.

A stone finger ring--yes, that is what it was designed for--has become the pendant on an extra-long cord of hand stitched deer hide.  Granite from the Old Mission Peninsula of Lake Michigan, its veins of red brown trace across a field of mottled olive green, buff and ivory.  Both sides are exquisite.  It needs no adornment or distraction and so only a simple leather cord was created for it, supple chocolate brown deer hide, accented with minute faceted beads of cats eye chrysoberyl.  Seen from a distance their presence is more textural than colorful, but as you draw nearer you see that their olive green hues perfectly echo the leaves of creosote.

Stitching a cord together by hand is tedious but rewarding work; I have not yet seen a commercial leather cord that is this supple or pleasing to the eye.  As the cord was sewn together I threaded in the chrysoberyl beads; they are literally stitched into the cord itself.  I created a similar cord for a personal piece years ago and it has worn so well that it still looks newly made...this will last for many years.  

To me, talismans that ride long and low feel protective, especially to the solar plexus and belly.  I find it comforting to have stones there.  This one rests on or near the navel.

Desert Primitive...contemporary abstraction for your body.

SIZE:  22 1/2" long when measured from the back of your neck to the base of the granite ring, as worn.  The ring is 2" x 1 1/4" x 3/4".

CARE:  The entire necklace may be washed with cool water.  Use a leather cleaning product to clean the cord if necessary.  Follow the manufacturer's instructions and do not scrub.  Rinse and blot dry with a soft towel.
