Amish quilters are known to occasionally slip a stitch in their beautiful patchwork creations, citing “only God is perfect.” As I made this necklace it occurred to me that it was simply too pretty. So I decided to slip a stitch–so-to-speak–by stringing a barely detectable design alteration. Hard to call it a “flaw.” The design idea, by the way, didn’t come from the Amish. It came from my friend Robin Meloy Goldsby, talented pianist and author. Additional photos available at: www.sandypointproshop.com.
