A very special quote is displayed on this necklace: "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children", along with a unique representation of the world.
The origin of this quote has not been determined with absolute certainty. It may have first been written in 1971 by environmental activist Wendell Berry in his book "The Unforeseen Wilderness: An Essay on Kentucky's Red River Gorge". The phrase has also been cited as a Native American proverb and as an Amish saying.
First portion of the quote is written on the topmost leaves: we - do not - inherit - the earth - from our - ancestors.
Copper leaves are crafted and finished by hand. Letters are added one at a time and not intended to look machine made.
Two central, silver rings represent the hemispheres of our Earth. These rings are marked on both sides to represent Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western. They hold 196 total dots to represent every country in our world.
Second half of the quote is suspended from these rings; reminiscent of a dream catcher - we borrow - it from - our children.
Necklace measures approximately 30 inches (76.2 cm) in total length. Connectors, clasp, rings, components, plus hook and eye fastener are hand fabricated.
