Sorcerer's Apprentice

This is my entry for the YOJ challenge over on   I loved this challenge, and was  inspired by the idea of elemental magic. I wanted to make a piece that could be gifted to a sorcerer's apprentice at the commencement of their training. The apprentice could add charms and talismans to the piece as they progress through their training.

I made my kumihimo braid to represent the elements of:

Earth: brass chain (in braid) and copper wire and findings
Air: silvery grey yarn
Fire: red / orange /gold yarn
Water: "fluffy" blue and silver yarn

The pendant is a "raku" ceramic bottle, and represents the fifth element, spirit.
