Prompted by a request for dining recommendations in the Marais, I skimmed through my Paris trove of goodies and found a whole other sketchbook I forgot about (and my foodie notes). Yipppee!
This is a beautiful necklace at the Musèe du quai Branly. It is hammered gold and although fairly good sized I thought it would be light to wear since it was pounded pretty thin. It is enhanced with the design pattern of a folded fan. I stood there among rowdy Parisian school kids (who kept asking me all sorts of questions about my sketchbook, -they were actually pretty funny) and sketched, I only wish I could have tried it on! Hand made artistry, there is nothing like the trace of the hand. N o t h i n g. . . ..... . ♡
