a single thread in nature
If one pulls on a single thread in nature, you'll find it attached to everything else.
— John Muir (1838–1914)
This is a new variation on an S6 wrap design; I was inspired by earlier designs like no. 059 but wanted a fuller, lacier, more colorful and layered effect.
Thread wrap in dark chocolate brown; S6 but no marking lines. Embroidery in nine shades of browns, rusts and coppery orange. The quote by Muir is in the bell box along with 8 brass rings. Circumference: 10.5 inches / 26.7 cm; diameter: 3.34 inches / 8.5 cm. Completed 3 April 2012 (no. 108).
