the present moment
If we are not fully ourselves, truly in the present moment, we miss everything.
— Thich Nhat Hanh (b. 1926)
Once in while I am inspired to do a dual thread wrap; oftentimes it just looks messy which is why I usually avoid it, but certain colors can combine to make a neat effect. This silver gray and black combine to create almost a metallic effect.
Dual thread wrap in black and silver gray. S6, not marked. Layered wrap in grays, blues, and black, with a black obi. The quote by Thich Nhat Hanh is in the bell box along with brass rings that make a quiet traditional rattle. Circumference: 11.125 inches / 28.5 cm; diameter: 3.54 inches / 9 cm. Completed 17 October 2012 (no. 187).
