'Home' - a necklace

Where is 'home'?
Is it a place made of bricks and mortar? Is it a country? Is it where your suitcase lies open? Or somewhere on the road, in between somewhere and nowhere?

I have never lived anywhere for longer than 5 years. Home for me is somewhere between my head and my heart. In my head, it is a place that logically and practically is where I live. My heart tells me that 'home' is somewhere else. It is the people I love. It is the place I share with friends. It is table around which family gather. I've made this necklace to sit exactly halfway between the two, the head and the heart.

Ingredients: sterling silver and nothing else!  Who ever snaps this one up can have it personalised. The 'steam' of the leaf can be stamped with up to 5 initials (or a word) in lower case letter stamps. The initials of those who you love or a place or anything you want!  They can be stamped on the front or the back of the steam.

This necklace can be worn in three ways.  Just the leaf and stem, just the 'home' tag or both together.  The leaf skeleton is one that I found when foraging for materials for my Christmas wreath.
