"When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college - that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared at me, incredulous, and said, "You mean they forget?""
- Howard Ikemoto -
I love this quote. There lies so much truth in it.
It came into my mind when I thought about what innocence is to me.

Yesterday I played a little around with some pieces from my stash without really thinking. Just playing. This pendant was one of the things I created.
I had screwed a beautiful white glass flower and a brass bead cap onto a black metal scrap disc, a piece of lace that I had cut into a round shape and a brass metal disc I had hammered for texture.
I really like it! It's a bit like people I love: there's something dark around the center and it's a bit scratched, but in a way still innocent.
So I decided to create a simple necklace for it. Handmade copper chain, a few czech glass beads, hammered copper washers, handmade copper bead caps and a simple handmade copper clasp (with brass) were all I added.
