A Fork in the Path

Fork in the Path Necklace

2010

Recycled sterling silver (etched), beach pebbles, waxed nylon.

This work refers to an indigenous type of mapping, a “navigation by the flowers” whereby the plants of the fragile, prickly and elusive Wallum and their seasonal changes may help to reveal a seldom used pathway described in stories handed down over 1000s of years.  There are as many possible paths as there are stories for a pebble found washed up on the beach.
