|Runic Wander Quote Choker|
Then, after I put the snap on it, I wore it as a double-wrapped bracelet instead of as a choker for a long time. It was partly an adjustment period because it'd been awhile since I wore anything on my neck regularly, but it also had a lot to do with the fact that I wanted to look at it and handle it. That's part of the wonder of beaded objects like this; the sheer tactile experience of them.
Actually, my love of touching and handling my beadwork is why I don't frame the tapestries when they're finished. I don't really even like to put the hanging loops/rods on them because even that limits how you can interact with them--but of course, they're barely even decorative without SOME way of hanging or displaying.
Anyway, this choker reads 'Not all those who wander are lost' in JRR Tolkien's runes--which is how the actual quote actually goes, and don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise.
