My hike up to Nyrigongo Lava lake in Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo yielded the pendant. It just had to be made. The beauty of an active volcanic lake cannot be understated, despite the danger that is linked to it.

 

This piece of mokume didn’t quite know how to express itself. I could not cut it up to create other pieces… so again… it had to wait to find its voice.  I knew it would be a bracelet but it wasn’t until after I came home that the myriad colours jumped into my Nyrigongo memories.

This bracelet is one of a kind and a custom piece as the length must be adapted to the wearer.
