I made this pendant from the impression of fallen bark from an oak tree in Oakland, California.

The tree is -- listen, I'll just say it -- the most magical effing oak tree in Oakland, imho.

A family of crows showed it to me. They flew ahead of me down the road, about twenty human paces at a stretch, waiting for me to catch up before flying on, till we arrived at this tree. They knew I had peanuts to offer, and this was their preferred spot for gift exchange.

The tree has two trunks. The branches of each trunk curve out in such large arcs that once you crouch down and step into them you get the sense of being INSIDE The Meeting Place, as opposed to just under a tree.

And it's right on the edge of earth. The tree grows so close to an estuary that its northern branches hover over ocean water, and on sunny days the sparkles coming off the water illuminate the shade inside The Meeting Place like glitter lights.
