perfectly imperfect

Bought a necklace today. It's been a long, weird week so far, and I've been itching to cast on something wooly... but with very little time and patience, it hasn't happened yet.

I've been thinking about getting one of these necklaces for a while. I love the weight of it, and the simplicity. We've been reading about the Japanese aesthetic of the "perfectly imperfect" in the 7th century, and for some reason the wood combined with the stone and slightly oxidized metal (pewter, maybe?) makes me remember that imperfect is not only realistic, it's usually quite beautiful.
