For the I.M.A.G.I.N.E. peace now project, we took apart a gun to make the Squash Blossom Necklace. Every piece of the firearm was spilled out on the bench and we were able to consider all of the shapes. With a large saw, we took the barrel and sawed it to expose the cross-section. What an iconic shape- yet it is difficult to recognize out of context. It looks more like a vessel than it does a gun part. This necklace comes in plated brass for $40- or sterling silver for $100-.
