i knew when i started this piece it would be wordy and long, and while that may seem like a no-duh statement, i didn't correctly estimate just how nearly endless this song is. i thought if i made the panels large enough it would be a single bracelet, then as it went on i decided it would be a choker. it grew past a sensible choker length and evolved into the paired wonder woman wrist adornment that it is now. which is perfect for so many reasons.

oh man. whatever. so much has been said. not exactly sure why Mr. Bowie's passing rattled me so. my mind keeps going to something I read that Ozzy said "I guess I thought he would live forever." sigh. lots of people have shared how they heard the news or where they were or what their reaction was. mine isn't terribly interesting - but here it is, anyways. i woke up for no reason i could tell at 4:30am eastern us time - and picked up my phone which i really can't stand to do and usually wouldn't at that time. but i did. and on top of that i opened instagram. and saw a bowie photo. then another, which i thought was a little odd. then another and then i thought oh no oh no. sigh.
i had planned to do this piece really quite a while ago. and then after january 10, i got pretty confused as to which song i wanted to do. moonage daydream, lazarus, rocknroll suicide - so many . then ultimately went back to heroes. good lord.
after spending time with this poem/passion/song as i end up spending with the hours each of the projects require, i think this piece would be an amazing engagement set - either two identical(ish) bolts with the song in total on each, or smaller bolts with the song in continuation across both. for those who do not prefer rings. and/or the traditional.
