Map of the Forest

I bought this pendant to make a choker with specifically because it reminded me of a topographical map of a mountain. I used this focal piece as inspiration and added beads that remind me of a hike through the woods. The back of the choker is the trail you take to the top of the mountain, along the way are rocks and bodies of water. From the summit peak or the cab of a fire tower you can see the rounded tops of nearby mountains.

It's like a hike through the woods without breaking a sweat! See my store for details.

neat looking pendant - kinda psychedelic! I see what you mean about the elevation lines of a mountain.

I love maps! Our archives used to be a USGS repository, but I gave OU all our topos, except for the Oklahoma maps. All sorts of people still ask to see them!

This is nice looking! I like how you tie it in with hiking; very symbolic.
