"My talisman- pieces of my heart- no better protection than Love" is the note that came from one of the women when I requested little tokens. She knew exactly what I was looking for and pulled them out of her pockets.
It was interesting grouping them by shape, color, or lines. There was lots of juggling until the pieces worked as a whole.
Truly a drawer of love. Some of these little gems have been around for many years, come from continents far away, or from loved ones no longer with us and each item has a story.
Women's Work appears at the Saul Alexander Gallery in Charleston May 1-31st with an opening reception May 5th.
