Chop Wood, Carry Water... A Thick, Rustic Sterling Silver and Deerskin Leather necklace


On the front of this thick, rustic, rectangular pendant is a primitive figure with an ax.

On the reverse, in all caps "CHOP WOOD CARRY WATER"

A reminder that when life becomes complicated, to go back to what we know is basic, and do it.

Suspended from an 18" soft, pliable, strong deerskin necklace with sterling clasp in an espresso brown.


All of my pieces are attractively boxed and accompanied by an information card. Suitable for gift giving without further fuss.
