what lies within us

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

Another amime-giku — or net weave — like no. 55. This variation has a division of 20; I wanted the division lines to be "invisible," so I used a triple-strand of the same thread as the wrap so it will blend in. This time I added a wide traditional obi rather than a "net" obi.

Thread wrap in purple; S20 division with the same purple thread; amime-giku in a dusky silvery lavender and a wide obi in that same color plus violet. The quote above by Ralph Waldo Emerson is in the bell box along with 7 brass rings. Circumference: 10.125 inches / 25.7 cm; diameter: 3.22 inches / 8.2 cm. Completed 11 November 2011 (no. 058).
